Many men are turned off by traditional counseling therapies that require extensive disclosure of personal feelings. Men are 4 times more likely than women to die from suicide and 2 -3 times more likely to abuse drugs and alcohol. Yet, they are slow to seek counseling. Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) & Neural Linguistic Programing (NLP) are unique to traditional counseling therapies often making them more preferential for men. EMDR & NLP address painful memories & negative self-beliefs by treating the neurological sources of confusion-the way physical therapy treats sources of physical pain.

Something is missing in life and you can feel it. It might be hard to name. Maybe you are finding yourself carrying the weight of the world on your shoulders and doing your best to build a life that’s different from the survival of your past.
