The First Session: Men in Therapy

men in therapy

Many clients have expressed that just the thought of opening up to someone unfamiliar prevented them from coming in sooner. I decided to dig deeper into this perspective, and I was especially curious about what male clients experience. After all, we do live in a gendered society where males are expected to be unemotional, so how does therapy challenge this concept? A close friend recently started seeing a therapist for the first time, so I interviewed him about his journey.
