Counseling for Men

Every man has his secret sorrows which the world knows not; and often times we call a man cold when he is only sad.”
– Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Many men are walking through life asking themselves “Is this it?” Where is the passion, the excitement, the adventure? Men are inundated with so many confusing messages of who they should be. If men are loud they are abrasive, dangerous, narcissistic; quite too passive, weak, not manly. These messages can paralyze a person into inaction, feeling trapped, in a cage. This cage also has one underlying fear, “What if I fail?”

This fear of failure can take a man out. Anxiety, depression, panic attacks, addictions, pornography, failed relationships, the list goes on and on. Men feel like they are failing at their jobs, failing at their marriages, failing as fathers, failing at life. Where is the hope? The answer most men come to is to live in their minds, living with out help, and making the vow to figure things out on my own.

Regardless of the type of stress you may be experiencing, take heart I am a man also. I understand these struggles and have worked through or are working through them myself. I understand the struggle and one of the worst things you can do is think you have to do this by yourself. Asking for help is not weakness, it is courageous, and that asking is something men desire but struggle to reach out for.

I will help you walk through these stressors and deconstruct the wounds of the past, which men typically interpret as weakness or failure. I consider it an honor to help you unravel the wounds you have experienced and begin to recover your heart. You can discover the strength you have to offer and develop the life you want to live. Should you choose to work through this process, my hope is that you can restore your heart, restore relationships, and restore your life.
