When you could use someone to talk to besides friends, family or coworkers

We know it’s not always easy to express your feelings as a man, possibly because you have been discouraged from doing so for much of your life.

In fact, you may not even be sure what emotion it is you’re dealing with! Our laid back office is a safe place to figure it out. Here, you can feel free to express and explore the things that are bothering you, without fear of judgement.

We are here to listen.

THERAPY FOR MEN​

Is therapy right for you?

We hear these often, and if you find yourself thinking along those lines, consider this: therapy is just a tool—like going to the gym for your brain.

It’s not about being broken or not tough enough. It’s about working through the rough stuff, and everyone’s got some of that. So, could therapy be right for you?

If you’re feeling off, or stuck, or just tired of the same old problems—it might be worth a shot.

Quotes that say, "Therapy won't work for me.", "I don't have time.", and "Therapy is for people with serious mental health issues."

THERAPY FOR MEN​

How is men's therapy different?

Men’s therapy takes into account the distinct experiences, societal expectations, and challenges that men encounter in their daily lives. We consider your unique psychological and emotional needs, offering an approach that you can relate to and benefit from in a meaningful way.

therapy for men

Therapy focused on the every day challenges men face

In today’s fast paced environment, it can be difficult to find a balance that lets you succeed at work while also enjoying life outside of it. With focused, effective support, and a commitment on your part, we believe that it’s possible to achieve it.

Establish genuine connections can be a challenge. We aim to help you in navigating these paths; whether it’s improving your romantic relationship, friendships, coworkers or connections with family. We can work together during our sessions to improve emotional intimacy, strengthen communication, and build fulfilling and lasting relationships that enrich your life.

Fighting an oncoming wave of rage or sadness can feel like you’re up against an invisible opponent. It is okay to feel, and it is also okay to seek help in dealing with those feelings. In therapy we will provide you with tools to help you better understand your emotions, respond to them in a healthy way, and turn what seems like your greatest challenge into your greatest strength.

Success – we all define it differently, but the roadblocks often feel the same. Whether it’s career success, financial stability, or physical fitness, we understand that stepping towards these goals can sometimes feel like climbing a mountain. We’re here to help you break down those goals into manageable steps and develop a clear, confident path forward.

Ever felt helpless to find a solution to a problem? It happens to the best of us. Our sessions can give you the practical problem-solving skills you need to turn obstacles into opportunities and face life’s challenges with confidence.

Experiencing trauma can leave deep emotional scars and it’s not something you have to overcome alone. If there are others affected, like your family, you may feel like you need to be the strong one and ignore your natural response to what happened. In therapy, we support you in unpacking and processing your experience in a way that helps reclaim your peace and confidence.

The heaviness that doesn’t seem to lift, feeling on edge, losing interest in the people and activities you used to love…

If it feels like no one can possibly understand, we’re here to listen, offer support, and help you rediscover the value and potential of your life. There’s strength in seeking help, and we’re ready to stand with you.

The loss of a loved one is incredibly challenging. It’s okay to grieve and it’s okay to seek help navigating that grief. We offer a supportive, judgement free space where you can express your feelings and learn to cope with loss, helping you move towards acceptance and peace at your own pace.

Becoming a parent is a major life transition, and it’s okay if you’re finding it challenging. The sleepless nights, the new responsibilities, the pressure to be the ‘perfect’ dad—it can all feel like a lot. Remember, it’s okay to not have all the answers right away. In therapy, we can offer support and tools to help as you adjust to your new role and find your footing as a parent.

Whether it’s starting a new job, shifting industries, or grappling with job loss, job transitions can have a huge impact on your life and stir up a mix of emotions. It’s okay to need a little guidance. We’re here to help you navigate these changes, build confidence, and strategize for your future career moves.

Questions About Men’s Therapy

Being self motivated is a quality that can really help in therapy. But think about it like this: if your car breaks down, you could try to figure out what’s wrong and fix it yourself, but you probably take it to a mechanic because they’ve got the skills, the tools, and the training. It’s similar with therapy. It’s not about not being able to handle your problems—it’s about getting some expert input to help you handle them even better.
Yes, it is absolutely normal for men to seek therapy. Mental health and emotional well-being are important for everyone, regardless of gender. Seeking therapy is a sign of strength and self-care, and it is becoming increasingly recognized and accepted by society. Men, like anyone else, can face various challenges and struggles in life, such as relationship issues, work-related stress, anxiety, depression, trauma, or personal growth concerns. Therapy can provide a safe and supportive space to explore these issues, gain insight, develop coping strategies, and enhance overall well-being. It’s important to prioritize mental health and seek help when needed, regardless of gender.

1. Emotional support: Therapy provides a safe and non-judgmental space where men can express and explore their emotions. Many men are socialized to suppress or downplay their feelings, which can lead to emotional distress. Therapy can help men develop emotional intelligence, improve self-awareness, and gain tools to navigate and process their emotions effectively.

2. Communication and relationship skills: Men often face unique challenges in communication and maintaining healthy relationships. Therapy can help men develop effective communication skills, assertiveness, active listening, and conflict resolution strategies. It can also explore patterns and dynamics within relationships, leading to healthier and more fulfilling connections with others.

3. Mental health management: Mental health issues can affect anyone, including men. Therapy can help men address concerns such as anxiety, depression, stress, anger management, addiction, or trauma. Therapists can provide tools and techniques to manage symptoms, develop coping mechanisms, and promote overall well-being.

4. Self-exploration and personal growth: Therapy allows men to explore their identity, values, beliefs, and goals. It can help men gain clarity about their purpose, passions, and priorities, fostering personal growth and self-fulfillment. Therapy can also provide support during significant life transitions or challenges, such as career changes, relationship difficulties, or grief and loss.

5. Healthy coping strategies: Men may face societal pressure to handle stress and challenges independently or through unhealthy coping mechanisms such as substance abuse or aggression. Therapy can help men develop healthier coping strategies, resilience, and stress management techniques. It provides a space to learn and practice self-care, boundary-setting, and self-compassion.

1. Improved communication skills: Therapy can teach men effective communication techniques, active listening, and assertiveness, enabling them to express their needs and emotions more clearly. This can enhance relationship dynamics and promote better understanding and connection with their partners or loved ones.

2. Conflict resolution: Many men struggle with managing conflict in relationships. Therapy can provide strategies for resolving conflicts constructively, teaching skills such as negotiation, compromise, and problem-solving. Men can learn to navigate disagreements and reach mutually satisfactory resolutions.

3. Understanding relationship patterns: Therapy helps men identify and understand recurring patterns or dynamics that may be contributing to relationship challenges. By exploring past experiences, beliefs, and attachment styles, men can gain insight into how these factors impact their current relationships. This self-awareness can lead to positive changes and healthier relationship choices.

4. Developing empathy and emotional intelligence: Therapy can assist men in developing empathy and emotional intelligence, enabling them to better understand and connect with their partners’ emotions and experiences. This can foster greater empathy, intimacy, and emotional support within relationships.

5. Strengthening relationship bonds: Therapy provides a supportive environment for men to work on repairing and strengthening relationship bonds. Therapists can guide individuals and couples in building trust, fostering intimacy, enhancing shared values and goals, and rekindling the emotional connection.

Many men struggle with opening up about their emotions, as they may have been socialized to suppress them. Some may fear being judged or misunderstood. In therapy, you can explore different avenues for expressing your emotions and work with a therapist who understands your unique experiences and challenges. Remember, these questions are not exhaustive, and men’s concerns about therapy can vary widely. It’s crucial for individuals to seek therapy tailored to their specific needs and find a therapist with whom they feel comfortable and understood.
Some men worry that therapy might undermine their masculinity or make them appear weak. They might be concerned that seeking help means admitting vulnerability or that it conflicts with traditional notions of masculinity. It’s important to address these concerns and understand that therapy is a sign of strength and self-care.
