Six Ways Men Can Benefit From Counseling

Five Ways Men Can Benefit From Counseling

I think we are less tolerant of men expressing emotions; not being allowed to feel fear, failure or vulnerability. As women, we can feel locked out when they won’t “share” their feelings when truthfully many men don’t know how or don’t talk the same language. This is where therapy can help.

Valentine’s Day – Heartache or Celebrate?

Valentine’s Day – Heart Ache or Celebrate

Valentine’s Day can be a tough one for many people–folks who are lonely because of a break up, a love lost or a love not yet found. A reminder of what one doesn’t have. It’s time for a reset.

Finding Real Love vs. Hollywood Love

all that pressure some of us put on ourselves to find the “right” partner will not amount to much if we aren’t right with ourselves. That means working toward being “complete” on our own. And then being open to another “complete” person as a partner.

Fall in Love with Love

Teen Counseling

It’s easy to look back on my experiences with love and confuse it with the people who hurt me. The mangled family relationships, the messy romances, the ones that got away. It’s also easy to confuse love with that chemical high that rushes our hearts and brains and causes us to make sometimes disastrous impulsive decisions. These heartaches and mistakes can easily make us wary of love itself.

Sex Desire Not Drive

For those who are struggling with sexuality in their relationships, so many men and women see male sexual desire as a problem. It is needy and persistent. It insists on being satisfied. And, so often men look to their partners to help them solve this problem.

Fearing Loss, Losing Connection

The truth is that loss is a part of life. It is as important as love, as important as security, as important as holding on to the things we value. Accepting loss gives us the power to change. If we accept the inevitability of loss, we free ourselves to feel vulnerable. And if we free ourselves to feel vulnerable, to fear losing, then we empower ourselves to examine what must change. And when we examine what must change, we enable the possibility that we can hang on to those we love. When we change, we heal. And when we heal, we love harder and longer and better.

Complicate Male Sexuality
