Our cultural definition of masculinity limits the experience of men. As a guy, you are told you must be confident at all times, for others to see you as a pillar of strength. It takes a lot of work to keep up the image, and it hurts to think you could fall short of expectations. Yet, you know the people you love want more than an image. And you want them to know the real you--your thoughts, concerns, emotions, desires, and feelings. They want to talk with you, to communicate with you and feel the all of your passion from physical affection, love and commitment. And you know you want to share it with them without feeling weak. So you probably have done what most other guys do, in fear of saying or doing the wrong thing, you opt to say nothing, become defensive, or divert the conversation. Counseling can help you change the pattern and find an enriched and fulfilling life. With my style of mindfulness, positive reinforcement, and analytic--no BS--skills deployed at opportune moments, you will learn that your richest experience rests in your ability to remain confident in your identity while expressing vulnerability. You are ready for change. Contact me to discuss how my counseling style can foster the growth and change you desire.
