Do you have a problem that is affecting your work or relationships? Is it causing you to feel stuck? It is important to get help so you can get back on the right track.
Even though the number of women who engage in therapy is higher that men, it does not mean the benefits of therapy don’t apply to men. Due to stereotypical, social, and cultural norms, many men feel uncomfortable working with a counselor, or therapy may not be the first thing that comes to mind when facing a challenge. Keep in mind that there is no “right” or “wrong” reason to engage in therapy, and getting professional help is beneficial for everyone. What matters is that you are taking the strong and courageous decision to resolve what is going on and I am here to help.
In my practice, most men come to see me when things are getting out of control or maybe they are not sure what the “problem” is but things are not just “right”. Lets start working on it together so you can move forward with your life.
Men often come to therapy to address the following:
- Anger or irritability. “I lose my temper all the time.”
- Relationship problems. “My wife/partner wants me to be a mind reader.”
- Parenthood: “I’m not sure how to balance my kids and work.” Having a baby can turn your life upside down. It adds lots of responsibility and provides little sleep. You may miss the relationship and time you used to spend with your partner prior to the arrival of the new family member.
- Aggression or domestic violence.
- Career problems: procrastination, avoidance, or high levels of stress.
- Stressful family relationships.
- Post traumatic stress disorder.
- Childhood trauma.
- Depression: feeling stuck or a lack of motivation.
Give me a call to assess what’s going on. I am here to help and offer nonjudgmental support. Having a good fit with your psychotherapist is very important in order to accomplish the goals that are important to you.
