Our desire is to put hope within reach. To us, putting hope within reach is much more than a vision – it’s a reminder that what we’re doing has an eternal impact. It emphasizes that one size solution does not fit every need. It’s the motivation behind the work that we do.

Greetings! I am Greg McNeil, a Ph.D. candidate, Life Coach, and Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor (LPCC) with over 17 years of professional experience in New Mexico. I view the decision to enter therapy as a uniquely transformative experience with powerful implications for our lives. “Human life does not fulfill its promise within the structures and establishments of society. No one comes to true selfhood by being what society wants you to be, nor by doing what society wants you to do.” Gnostics

Life can be complicated and is rarely straightforward. There are thousands of self help books out there on how to make your life meaningful. They can be helpful. However in my experience it is not always the actual knowledge of what makes life meaningful, it is the timely application of this knowledge and experiencing the feeling of accepting oneself. We often know why we want to make changes to better our life, we just don't always know how.

Working together might be a great fit if you are an intelligent, typically motivated person who is ready to make positive changes that can dramatically improve your life. One of my practice mottos is "we can do more than talk about it, but we can talk about it, too." Sometimes it is really important to be heard - to get things off your chest in a warm, supportive context. But beyond that, it is also really beneficial to do things that will naturally result in feeling better. I've made it my specialty to gather as many practical maps, tools, and instructions for exactly what to do... to feel better and better: body, mind and spirit.

Are you becoming weaker, physically tired, due to lack of movement? Or, has life become so intense that your stress levels are to high to withstand.

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.
