Life can be challenging enough without with the added challenges of anxiety, worry, workplace stress, family challenges or trauma. These can steal the joy from your life, the pride from your accomplishments and even the hope from your future. They can make you question whether you can continue to do your job, succeed in school or even whether you'll be able to enjoy your retirement. Counselling gives you the opportunity to build up your strength, learn new skills and overcome those challenges so that you can not just function but thrive in your daily life, whether at home, school, career or retirement.

Ask yourself... are the struggles I'm experiencing in my life due simply because things are happening to me? Struggles in relationships, traumatic/problematic situations and unwanted thoughts do come into our lives but these struggles lie in our capacity to listen to our emotions and hear what it is they are trying to tell us about all of these things. Our emotions are an early warning system that calls us to action because we are seeking resonance (love, joy, balance, peace) in our lives. When things resonate with us, they feel right. It's a visceral gut reaction. Unfortunately, emotions don't speak English. Our thoughts do.

Exploring your identity can be a painful process when you aren’t supported by your family and friends. This can be worse when something about your identity doesn’t fit with expectations. You’re filled with sadness and self-hatred and having to pretend causes you so much anxiety. You want to live authentically but you’re not sure how to navigate that process.

There are times in our life when it feels like nothing we do makes a difference. Problems become complicated by issues associated with our struggles managing mood or anxiety, feelings of shame, or coping with grief and loss. Situations such as transitions related to life stages, conflict or loss of connection in significant relationships, or changes in mental well being can be distressing and overwhelming. I work hard to build collaborative alliances with clients to co-construct different narratives about our relationship with problems, and develop alternative personal stories of strength, growth and recovery.

As a man, why might I want to see a male therapist?

There are many reasons a man might wish to work with a male therapist, including a degree of shared identity, which may help client and therapist connect to each other and allow for a more free-flowing discussion of issues that can be deeply personal. Some men may feel more comfortable talking to a male therapist about relationship concerns, the pressures they feel around the roles society and family place on men, career or job challenges, self-esteem, or anger problems. For some men who have not had a male role models in their lives, a good male therapist may be especially helpful.

How can I find out about a therapist’s experience treating men?

Individuals looking for treatment should feel comfortable directly asking a therapist about their history treating men overall and the issues that arise in therapy with men. A good therapist will be happy to discuss such matters as well as their educational background, approach to treatment, and how they think they can aid a prospective client. Prospective clients should also ask what the expectation is for treatment, and what the fee structure is, and whether and which insurance plans are accepted.

Can clients benefit from having a therapist of the same gender?

Therapy is not gender-specific, but some men as well as women feel more comfortable opening up about their experiences and history with a male therapist. An individual may feel that they have to explain less background information and be on the same page more quickly, particularly when discussing gender-specific challenges, in the case of male clients. Some women have prior negative experiences with women that predispose them to prefer working with a male in therapy. That said, a good clinician can transcend most if not all gender concerns. Ultimately, the most important factor in therapy is the connection and trust the client is able to build with the practitioner.

Would a male therapist have specific training in treating men?

Generally, no. There are no certifications for treating men specifically, but there are continuing education classes that therapists may take that focus on treating men as a group. There are many therapists who focus on men and male issues in their treatment and therefore have experience and expertise in this domain.
