Therapy for Men
You’re used to being able to put things together. You problem-solve with the best of them at work. You’re a skilled networker in your personal life. And with your family, you often have the answers people are looking for. It’s brought you a lot of success over the years.
But there’s been one thing lately you haven’t been able to put together: yourself.
Could Therapy for Men in St. Louis Actually Help You?
You’ve been feeling crummy. You can’t even really explain it beyond that. But you fully realize you’re “off.” You’ve denied it, suppressed it for a bit, but now you can’t shake all of it off to the side. It can’t be ignored. It won’t let you go. It’s like you’re covered by a wet blanket---in your thought process; in your emotions; in your usually positive interpersonal interactions.
The thoughts you are having are normal for men.
And now that you’ve fully realized it—this feeling that something is going on and impacting this much of your life—now it’s a little overwhelming. It's really common for men with these thoughts to seek therapy. You’re having some panic: “how did this happen?” You’re having some anger: “why did this have to happen to me? I didn’t do anything to deserve this!” You’re disliking yourself: “why have I not been able to fix this? I can fix almost everything else.”
Though you haven’t said it out loud yet, you are feeling some shame: “how did I let it get this bad? It’s affecting everything.”
It’s a gross feeling and you’ve come to the point you’re absolutely D.O.N.E. with it. You’re ready to feel like your strengths can be utilized to impact not just your life, but your family’s life, again. You’re ready to wake up in the mornings and feel confident about your day and your ability to move through it. You’re for sure ready to show up again as the problem-solver, networker, and answers man you’ve been throughout your life.
And because you’re ready for that feeling again, you’re ready to do the work to get there. And that work this time around is this: therapy.
The Marble Wellness Approach to Therapy for Men in St. Louis.
In working together during counseling sessions, we can explore what happened along the way that got you tripped up and tangled. But that’s not all we’ll do: we won’t sit in sessions each time digging into your past or solely focusing on your emotions. That’s not what you’re looking to accomplish—sure, you’ll engage insofar as it helps you get to the other side. But really, you’re looking for solutions, a way forward, answers, new habits, and impact-heavy tools to get you….well, back to you.
Or back to an even better you.
What will we actually do in therapy?
And that’s what we will do: create goals, find successes, and turn successes into long-term solutions. We do this by taking a look at your life up to this point, and also the elements in your life now. I help you expand your perspective and consider alternative solutions than the ones you’ve been using but haven’t been working. We balance the considerations of your emotions with the usefulness of your thoughts. We talk about routines and schedules and work together to find ways that small changes there can lead to big results on the back-end.
Therapy for men is not as scary as it seems. What are you waiting for?
We make therapy something completely unintimidating and instead something completely life-changing. After all, you are the problem-solver, networker, and answers man: I just help you figure out how to take off the wet blanket.
