Are you feeling disconnected to yourself, loved ones, or society? Do you question whether you are a good father, son, or partner? Do you feel angry, stuck, overwhelmed, powerless, guilty, or "not normal". Many men struggle with their mental health without seeking help or reaching out for support. Often, this struggle may lead to addiction, anxiety, depression, shame, guilt, suicidal ideation, poor relationships, grief, low self-esteem, or low self-worth. First Step Men's Therapy offers a safe, warm, and inviting space for men to heal, learn, and grow. Book a free consultation today by clicking the "Website" button to learn more.
In our work together, we will explore how you arrived at this part of your journey and identify unhelpful and destructive thoughts, feelings, and behaviours that have impacted your ability to live authentically and be true to yourself. We will develop goals and clarify values that are meaningful to you while focusing on your strengths, gifts, and assets.
Our specializations include: sexual addiction, grief, life transitions, alcohol use, divorce, parenting, trauma, PTSD, ADHD, anger management, sex therapy, anxiety, infidelity, depression, and men's issues. We offer therapy to men online across Ontario. We also offer couples counselling and therapy for partners needing extra support. Reach out to us today!
