My name is Harris E. Harris, CEO/Founder of Truth Substance Abuse Services, PLLC, originally from Los Angeles, California where I started my practice. I have been working with Chemically Dependent Individuals for 23 years, working in men and women prisons, Residential facilities, Outpatient; and with the onset of Covid-19, working virtually with clients. My want to pursue this area of concern was by way of exposure of living with my father, a gentle kind-hearted individual one moment, turning violent after ingesting the poison, alcohol. Alcoholism, is a family disease.

My ideal client is someone that can envision a better life and existence, and is willing to actively and persistently collaborate to work towards actualizing the goals they believe will enhance their mindset, their daily experience, and ultimately their quality of life. A willingness to discuss how they perceive and experience their issues will lead to a deeper understanding of root causes, actual needs, and the Self, which in turn will shift perspectives and transform personal narratives. Problems and needs become challenges met with action (via daily practice) that establish new behavioral patterns designed to achieve their goals.

Trauma impacts our ability to foster and maintain relationships. It frequently impacts us in the domains of safety, trust, esteem, intimacy, and power & control. Resolving trauma through processing leads to the ability to live a more fulfilled life, which is my primary goal in therapy. I believe that we have the ability to choose how to resolve our own problems and can make our own decisions with the assistance of an empathetic facilitator. I also believe that self-awareness is key to developing purpose, direction, and motivation to change, and my approach will provide you with methods to solve problems utilizing your own strengths.

Therapy is a journey and not always the easiest to embark upon and just showing up is half the battle. As a therapist it’s my job to gently guide you through this process. Developing a therapeutic relationship is the cornerstone of the work of therapy. In the first few appointments I will get to know you and the various problems that have kept you from reaching your goals. From there we will work together on reaching positive goals. I enjoy coffee, college sports, my dogs, travel, and collecting mechanical watches.

Each person is unique, but life can present us moments that are not particular to anyone. For example thoughts like: "I'm scared to be alone", "I'm afraid that something bad could happen", "I can't deal with this situation", "I feel like everybody judges me in a negative way or no one understands me", "I'm a failure", "a disappointment or not worth it!". You may have tried hard to handle these thoughts and feelings on your own but now you feel tired, frustrated and running out of options. It's always difficult to take the first step in requesting the help to get tools that you need to face these life challenges!

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.
