Men’s Concerns Resolved

Specializing in men’s concerns, chances are good that I have helped other men with the same issues that you are struggling with.

Men are evolving. The old bottle-it-up and tuck-it-away approach to dealing with emotional distress has shifted to a new talk-it-through strategy. All of the men I have worked with have one thing in common – they faced an issue they needed help with and they wanted a safe, understanding, and judgment-free environment where they could go to get that help. No matter what issue you are facing, I am here to help you through it. The list of issues and concerns that men see me for is unending. But the types of men’s concerns that I most commonly see and help with include:

  • Marital Transition
  • Marital Problems
  • Communication
  • Infidelity (men and women)
  • Marriage Separation
  • Divorce
  • Trust
  • Dating and partner issues
  • Anxiety
  • Self-Confidence
  • Work-life balance
  • Finance-related stressors
  • Entrepreneurial stressor
  • Wealth growth transitions and Sudden wealth experiences
  • Decision-making
  • Parenting
  • Self-identity

What Will We Talk About In A Therapy Session?

The anatomy of a session is looser than you might expect.  At first, we will get to know each other.  I am not a therapist who sits back and nods while you talk the entire time. That approach to therapy is popular in today’s culture, but it is antiquated and prolongs the process.

I jump into your situation with you. I ask you to show me the world through your perspective, and then I challenge and encourage you to look at situations from many other perspectives and change your behavioral and emotional patterns. This truly alleviates any distress that you may be feeling, and helps you feel more grounded, confident, and assured of your next move. If you are seeking a therapeutic experience that is honest, direct, interactive, humorous, and compassionate, we will work well together.  I respond quickly and intuitively to your interactions with the goal to prevent unhelpful “more-of-the-same” patterns.

Will Therapy Help With My Job Stress?

Yes! You probably spend as many hours at work as you do at home—if not more—and that time can have a huge impact on your well-being. “A job-related problem is actually a great reason to seek therapy.  In fact, therapy can actually give you a leg up at the office. Researchers have found that 13 weeks of therapy significantly increased workers’ job satisfaction and self-esteem.

How Does Therapy Improve My Sex Life?

When do you most feel like gettin’ busy: When you’re happy and relaxed, or when you’re stressed and tense? Exactly.

Studies show that anxiety and depression can make men more susceptible to experience sex-related stressors in the bedroom. And if the problem stems from sexual anxiety, counseling can help you communicate and empathize with your partner—a strategy that can ultimately relieve some of the performance pressure.  The secret to the greatest foreplay of all is connecting behavior, such as listening and emotional vulnerability. Don’t roll your eyes just yet, because once you recognize the power these behaviors have, you’ll be rolling those eyes towards the bedroom.

Will I Cry In Therapy?

I often say men are allowed 2 emotions in our great American culture: Anger and Sports.  This isn’t fair, and is, frankly, damaging.  Know that lots of men have shed some tears in sessions, and that is healthy. Your brain is actually working its chemical magic (releasing oxytocin), which induces relaxation and improves your mood. There is no judgment in our therapeutic relationship.
