Guys have way more going on emotionally than most of us are comfortable talking about. If you have never talked to someone about whatever it is that you probably should talk to someone about, then I may be the guy for you. Some men come to my office after they've recently broken up with their girlfriend (or she has broken up with him). Some are dealing with anxiety or are living under the influence of depression. Some guys are trying to figure out who they really are and what to do with their life. What they all have in common is that they have strengths to draw on and want to advance in life feeling better than they do now.

It’s terrifying and heartbreaking to think that this may be the end of your relationship. There is distance and disconnection between you and your partner. You feel alone and desperate to reconnect but they feel so far away or you don’t even recognize them anymore. You feel more like roommates than partners, or you’ve been betrayed and no one can understand why you want to stay in this relationship. You don’t know where things went wrong but something needs to change.
