Being a successful husband, father, or partner in the 21st century can be a difficult task.
As men, many of us have been taught confusing and conflicting messages about what it is to be a successful man, husband, and father.
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.
This is way I wrote Black Belt Husband. It’s a marriage book specifically for men and it’s my take on what’s needed to be a successful husband in the 21st century.
If you’re looking for practical and measurable solutions to help solve your problems, you’ve come to the right place.
I believe most men don’t need “a therapist”, but could benefit greatly from having a mentor or a coach in their lives. Most us aren’t fortunate enough to have really great male role-models in our lives and so we’re left to figure things out for ourselves. I know that was true for me and I’m so thankful to the great male mentors in my life.
I approach my work with men with a belief that there isn’t anything wrong with you and that you’re not defective. But you might be able to benefit from simply learning a few new skills to maximize the quality off your life. That’s it.
With 75% of the therapists in California being female, I like to consider myself a “guy’s-guy” who get’s it.
I promise I won’t try to feminize you or try to limit your masculinity. I am the biggest advocate for men holding onto their power, strength and their masculine selves, but learning how to harness God-given abilities in a way that promotes your greatest well-being.
Having a place to talk through not only life’s challenges, but also life’s successes is something we all need. Many of the guys I work with 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
