Men's General Issues

Many men emphatically deny having issues out of fear that they will appear weak by admitting vulnerabilities.  Some people say that men are not complicated and can resolve their problems  by simply talking to a friend or figuring things out on their own.  While that is sometimes the case, there are many seasons and circumstances in life where men face unique challenges that often call for support of a different kind.

 

Counseling for men can look quite different than counseling for women, and its important for men who are on the fence regarding counseling to be assured that their treatment will be geared towards the way they are wired.

 

While there are numerous concerns addressed for men in counseling, here is a short list of some common issues dealt with that might apply to your situation:

 

Emotional disconnection

Abusive behaviors

Fatherhood

Sexual addictions

Abuse of alcohol and/or drugs

Stress and Anxiety

Depression

Relationship troubles

Sexual identity

Leading well at work or home

Career issues

Prioritizing work over family

 

Therapy Can Help

 

Journeys Counseling Center is well equipped to meet the needs of all men with all types of struggles. We have several male therapists who specialize in working with men to find solutions.   Additionally, our male counselors are sensitive to the specialized needs of men and are adept at meeting men where they are at, while educating and challenging them to grow.

 

If you have been hesitant to seek counseling or are realizing that it is time to get help, give us a call.  If you are a family member worried about your father, husband, son, or brother, we would love to talk to you about how we can help.  Journeys has been proud to walk alongside men who have made significant changes in their lives.  The results of therapy for men can be incredibly profound, not only for the men themselves, but for all who love and care for them.

 

 

We generally recommend scheduling an initial assessment with a Journeys counselor to evaluate your specific needs, as well as determining best options for treatment and more precise answers to the questions you may have about the process. The Journeys team strives to provide you with the perfect fit professionally, and will happily direct you to the counselor with the best personality, expertise and approach for you.
