Men often carry burdens alone and wish they had someone they could trust for help and guidance. The pressure of “being a man” leaves many of us feeling inadequate, confused, and lonely. We wish we had fathers or mentors to show us the way, but we have no idea how to find them. David welcomes you to explore your struggles in a safe environment and find better ways of living life with the people you love. If part of your struggle is marital or relational, then feel free to come as a couple. David and his wife Guitta, also a therapist, welcome the opportunity to work with couples seeking to live in a mutually supportive relationship.

Life can throw challenges our way when we least expect it; some simple, some not so simple. If those challenges are too complex or come in rapid succession, one can easily begin to feel overwhelmed, hopeless, and lose the ability to cope. Sometimes, the challenge might be the quiet pain of living with mental illness. In my experience, most people just want to live their lives and be in control of their emotions, so they can cope with whatever life throws at them.

Male Therapists

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.
