Do the women in your life say, “You seem so distant, I feel like I don’t truly know who you are”? or, “Stop trying to control me!” Have you picked a fight with your partner just to have some time to yourself? Have you heard, “It’s not what you said, it was how you said it…”

Did you have an outburst, or such a strong reaction that it scared you? Sometimes you try to control outcomes in your relationships, only to be met with more things to control. You feel the need to hide certain behaviors from the people in your life who care about you. You’ve turned to manipulation, exerting control over others, alcohol, sex, gambling, pornography and high-risk behaviors to try to prove to yourself that you are capable, powerful and worthy of respect. Deep down you know that your efforts to earn the respect of the people in your life has had the opposite effect.

Have you been wondering what healthy masculinity really looks life in today’s world?

If so, you are not alone, far from it actually.  I have seen how fear can be a powerful influence in the lives of those who are afraid to look weak or ask for help. Too often my clients find themselves overwhelmed by their circumstances and running in destructive patterns.

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor with experience working with men who have gained a new perspective on the power of being able to express their thoughts and emotions as a means of building deeper connection with the people in their lives. I have led men’s and women’s groups where they were able to increase their self-awareness, live out of their core values, build a solid support system and learn assertive communication skills. 

I aspire to create a safe place in the session where you will not be met with judgment or a list of things that you need to do in order to find success. Instead, you will meet with a man where you can have an authentic conversation about your joys and struggles in life, and everything in between. We will work together to help you find the courage to live the life you have been wanting to live. Life does not have to look like this.
