There’s a misperception that therapy doesn’t work for men because they aren’t as emotional as women. Men are conditioned and socialized to “man up” and bottle their emotions in order to appear strong. This happens from an early age and boys are taught that they need to get over things quickly, that feeling too much is week, and its best to figure out how to solve their own problems.
That’s not healthy. When past wounds are left unresolved, they can turn into bigger mental health issues like depression and anxiety.
Dealing with it alone is hard and you deserve support as you work through it.
You’re human and you need a place to process your thoughts and feelings just like anyone else. Working with me in men’s counseling will teach you to connect with yourself to better understand your emotions, your reactions, and your inner thoughts. Men’s counseling is the best way to figure out what’s really important to you and what drives you and gain the confidence to go for it.
Your issues are unique to you and you matter – take the first step and seek support so you don’t have to manage it alone.
