Are You A Successful Professional Struggling To  Find Happiness In Your Life?

 

man looking at lakeDo you feel as if something in your life is out of balance, but you can’t identify exactly what it is? Do the strains and obligations of your career prevent you from maintaining or forming healthy, intimate relationships? In your existing relationships, do you feel detached or numb and unable to make true emotional connections with the people closest to you? Perhaps added responsibilities at work or greater expectations at home are creating additional stress and anxiety that you personally struggle to manage on a daily basis. Do you feel as if you are physically and mentally exhausted from long and intense work days, constant stress or the pursuance of an unrealistic goal of perfection? Perhaps you worry that negative experiences from your past may be harmfully impacting your career, current relationships or mental health? Or maybe you are seeking guidance to help prevent a current psychological condition, such as depression or anxiety from interfering in your work or personal life. At the end of the day, do you wish you could find a way to finally relax and enjoy the success you have worked so hard for?

 

Many Men Struggle With Stress, Work Anxiety, Relationship Problems And Life Balance Issues 

For many men, engaging in successful relationships, mitigating the stress of their personal and professional lives and establishing a healthy career/ personal life balance can be challenging for a variety of reasons. Past relationships, work anxiety, personal history, and mental health issues can all contribute to a sense of imbalance in your life. The demands of being an engaged father and dedicated husband, the stress of acting as the sole provider for a family or the shock from a recent divorce can negatively impact your work performance and physical and mental health. The loneliness and isolation of working long hours can leave you feeling depressed and unable to enjoy your current success. The desire to compensate for experiences in the past or for fears of the future can create anxiety and unrealistic expectations of yourself. In a society that places so much emphasis on work and success, it’s very common for professionals to have problems maintaining a fulfilling relationship with life, themselves, friends and loved ones.

Fortunately, there is help and support. With the guidance of a compassionate, experienced and skilled therapist, therapy for men can help you discover how to harmonize your professional success with your personal relationships; reduce frustration, stress and anxiety and improve your overall physical and mental well-being. With help and support, you can reconnect to yourself and renew existing relationships while building healthy, successful new ones.

 

Counseling for Men Can Provide You With Support, Skills, Insights And Empowering Strategies For Growth In All Aspects Of Your Life

 

People are defined by their experiences, memories and emotions. By gently investigating those factors, we can begin to reveal why it may be difficult for you to experience satisfaction and joy despite professional success and financial wealth. In counseling for men sessions, we will start by looking at who you truly are and questioning those experiences, memories and emotions that have both shaped and define your existence. What negative aspects of your past are you still carrying with you? What social mechanisms did you develop in your youth that no longer serve you in the adult world? How do past relationships define your present and future ones? How have past events affected your current behavior, attitude and perceptions, perhaps without you even knowing? By asking these questions and more, we can begin to unravel the true and wonderful nature of your life as it currently is rather than how you perceive it through the lens of your past. In identifying how past experiences dictate responses to your current perception of the present, I can help you develop more adaptive responses to manage future experiences and emotions.

Reconnecting with life, happiness and the people around you is central to healing. But, making true, emotional connections with others is impossible without first establishing a solid connection to yourself. In a safe and confidential environment, I can help you navigate frustration, loneliness and confusing emotions and help you recognize your true identity by mindfully engaging in the present and letting go of that former self. Once you heal the past, you can take control of your life. Overtime, you can begin to feel more authentic and empowered, happier and physically healthier. With a guided approach, tailored to your specific needs, concerns and aspirations, I can help you reconnect with life.

I am a Licensed Processional Counselor who’s been helping clients navigate a wide range of issues ranging from depression and anxiety to trauma and couples counseling. In my five years of professional experience and three years of private practice, I have witnessed firsthand the power of therapy to help people live happier and more fulfilling lives. Life is supposed to be a wonderful, engaging experience. With the proper guidance and compassionate support, you can take control of your lives, improve relationships and learn to enjoy all you have worked so diligently for.

 

I’m considering counseling for men, but I still have questions and concerns…

 

Maybe I’m just flawed or broken, and I have to learn to deal with it.

Neuroscience has demonstrated consistently that the brain can be re-wired. The way you think, feel and deal with conflict and success can all be restructured and re-tooled. This is important because it is primarily in our youth that we develop mechanisms to deal with stress, anxiety and fear. As we mature, those same mechanisms that once served us begin to fail. Systematic failures can make you lose faith in your ability to control your life or deal with problems that arise. You may not even know how to enjoy the life you have created. With men’s counseling, you can identify the manners of thinking that are no longer serving you well and re-frame your sense of options. I can offer you healthier options and help you build the tools and skills needed to increase happiness and improve your relationships.

 

I’m already so busy, and I’m not sure if the time spent in therapy for men will be beneficial.

It can be helpful to look at men’s counseling as an investment in your career, relationships and overall wellbeing. As your career begins to dominate your life, you inevitably begin to sacrifice essential parts of yourself. This sacrifice can affect every aspect of your life. Your children’s relationship with you dwindles as they swiftly grow older. Frequent business trips and long hours leave a partner home alone and isolated from your love. You slowly stop taking care of yourself because only work matters. But, it doesn’t. Your joy, wholeness and loved ones matter more. Essentially, investing in counseling is investing in yourself and those you love. By taking the time to examine who you are and what you want to create, you can become a better employee, friend, spouse and parent.

 

I don’t want to burden anyone with my problems.

I am strive to be an unbiased, non-judgmental therapist, and helping people is what I love to do. In our sessions, we can take an action-base approach where we focus on how to get things done, how to actively make your life better and how to be truly successful, rather than talking about emotions and memories. If, or when the time comes that you feel comfortable addressing your most pressing concerns, I’ll be there for you. Together we can examine how experiences in the past may be affecting you in the present. We can also address your perception of yourself, how it affects you in your daily life and, ultimately, how to liberate yourself from the old you.

I can help you get your life on back from depression and encourage you to contact me using the pop-up form below to schedule a free 30 minute consultation. Or you can call me at my confidential business number (303) 748-4730.

I look forward to speaking with you about your concerns and am happy to answer any additional questions about how I might help you!
