Men In Therapy
It takes men years to pursue therapy because so often they equate seeking assistance with weakness or the appearance of not being able to handle their own problems. As a result, feelings of vulnerability, anxiety and depression are hidden from everyone, and men frequently feel alone in their struggles.
Men seek therapy for a variety of reasons including dealing with spouses who frequently express dissatisfaction with their relationship, being passed up for a promotion and not reaching their professional and financial goals in their current stage of life. Others come in needing to discuss the physical and psychological effects of aging, the experience of nothingness after retirement and the wish to leave behind a legacy.
In therapy, we are able to look at difficult childhoods, and explore your past successes and disappointments as well as the very structure of your beliefs. In a safe and confidential space, we will tap into your inner resources and resilience to address your feelings. You’ll be given tasks to improve self-care, and communication, and express dissatisfaction in a more constructive and open manner.
