I genuinely value everyone in my care. I respect your uniqueness and your experience in life.

In these uncertain times of the post-pandemic era, it's completely understandable that you might be feeling overwhelmed and scared by the numerous stressors and uncertainties you're facing. You may find yourself wondering how to navigate through it all. It's common to seek understanding and comfort from friends and family, but sometimes it feels like they may not fully grasp what you're going through or how to provide the support you truly need. You may also find yourself getting caught up in social media images and struggling to move forward with the things you want to achieve.

Choosing a therapist can be challenging in a lot of ways. For starters, you're probably looking for a therapist because things are a bit tricky right now. You might be feeling anxious already and it can take time to find someone you can talk to. Then, when you finally do meet with someone, it can be hard to trust the therapist in the very first session. On top of that, when you finally DO find the person you're comfortable talking to, your insurance might not cover your sessions, or maybe you don't have insurance at all.

There is nothing more isolating than feeling like you’re alone in your experiences—constantly Googling what “normal” would feel like. Your life feels everything but normal, and in an attempt to make your life seem like everything’s fine, you don’t talk about your anxiety. You don’t talk about the crippling stress you feel at work. You don’t talk about how you haven’t eaten today. You desperately want to feel normal, and you want everyone to think everything is okay. But you are far from okay. You constantly wonder if other people feel the way you do.

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.
