Being a successful husband, father, or partner in the 21st century can be a difficult task.
As men living in a post-feminist era, many of us have been taught confusing and conflicting messages about what it is to be a successful man.
We’re told things like we don’t share our feelings enough and that we’re not “doing it right” as husbands. Or that we don’t know how to be Dad’s the “right way”. We’re told that we should “do it this way”, or that we should “do it that way”.
Many men feel frustrated with the bombardment of messages that can make us feel like we’re doing a bad job, or somehow that we’re defective as Husbands and Dad’s. These messages often times come from frustrated wives, and from society in general.
If you’re looking for practical and measurable solutions to help solve your problems, you’ve come to the right place.
Some men have good friends they can confide in, but more commonly, few men have deep and close interpersonal relationships where they experience being truly authentic with other like-minded guys.
I know this was certainly true for the majority of my own life. As a therapist and relationship coach working with other men, I am keenly aware of the intricacies of the struggles that men face.
With 75% of the therapists in California being female, I like to consider myself a “guy’s-guy therapist” who get’s it.
I promise I won’t try to feminize you or try to limit your masculinity. I may actually get you working to increase it. I am the biggest advocate for men holding onto their power, strength and their masculine selves.
Having a place to talk through not only life’s challenges, but life’s successes is something we all need. Many of the guys I work with in therapy are sorting things out such as:
- Marriage help for New Dad’s
- Work-Life Balance Issues
- Relationship Crisis Geared Toward Saving Your Marriage
- Struggles with Parenting or Co-Parenting
- Infidelity – Staying Married or Pursuing Your Mistress
- Spirituality Issues – Topics of Faith
- Contemplating Divorce? Should I Stay, Or Should I Go
- Midlife Crisis’s & Life Transitions
- Addiction or Issues Around Alcoholism
