What is Men’s Counseling?

Everyone has problems.

If you are a man reading this, counseling might be something you’ve never considered because you thought, “That’s not what men do and, as a man, I should be able to solve things on my own.” However, Einstein said,

“We cannot solve our problems with the same level of thinking that created them.”

Having a licensed counselor to assist in the process of addressing your specific issues allows you to gain a new perspective and overcome the problems you’re facing.

Problems are opportunities for growth and change.

 

Some men find that they struggle with a high-pressure job, where they deal with excessive work stress. Other men find that they are faced with relationship challenges, sexual dysfunction, separation, or divorce. Lastly, you may be dealing with anger that is affecting your relationships, marriage, and parenting. If this describes what you are going through, then you are not alone. Many men face these issues and more. Your presenting problem is basically an opportunity for personal growth and your unique process toward wellness.
 
 

What Can I Expect with Men’s Counseling?

“TACKLE the ROOT CAUSE not the EFFECT.” 

“The first thing you have to know is yourself. A man who knows himself can step outside himself and watch his own reactions like an observer.”  – Adam Smith, The Money Game

Counseling provides an opportunity to better understand your patterns and habits. Using different counseling approaches, you will come to know why you do what you do and how to break the bad habits in your life and relationships.

Expect to be challenged.

If your behavior, perception, motivation, and choices don’t align with your stated values and beliefs it can create tension. This tension can show up as fatigue, aggression, anxiety, depression, and addictive habits. Counseling helps to align your values and beliefs with your actions so you can live a more fulfilled life.

Expect transformation.

As you apply the new insights and tools you learn in counseling, change will come. You can expect to gain greater self-awareness and decision making skills that will improve relationships, increase confidence, enhance communication skills, decrease stress and anxiety, and identify the things in life that matter the most. As this change occurs, you will have a counselor that understands your objectives and will assist you along the way toward accomplishing your goals.
