Therapy for Men
Let's Get it Together, Together
You’re feeling stuck, stagnant, or frozen. Less vital. Hollow. Defeated.
When these feelings grow slowly over time, you might find yourself thinking that this is just the way it is, and it’s just the way it’s going to stay. You may know something is off, but you might not be sure what it is. Maybe something’s missing. Maybe you’re not enough. Sound familiar?
Or maybe you feel like life’s challenges are piling up and just when you’ve got one thing figured out, another pops up. Another thing to handle. The cruelest version of whack-a-mole.
When you’re already running full speed, any one thing can end up feeling like an insurmountable challenge—whether it’s a breakup, conflict in our families or relationships, the sudden shift into some new phase of life, or a rapid loss of energy, motivation, and drive.
You’ve worked incredibly hard to put the pieces of your life together in a way that seems like it should allow for a smooth life. Only to find yourself in a place where you’re feeling empty. Feeling like you’re falling short. Feeling totally uncertain about what comes next.
You’re tired of it.
I get it.
You’re not alone in this.
If your car gives you trouble, you’d take it to a mechanic, right? In other areas of your life, when you see a problem, you handle it. Well, it's the same when things don't feel right in your life, in your thoughts, or in your feelings.
Whether this shows up in your relationships, your motivation, your general sense of wellbeing, your work, or any number of other potential ways, it’s never easy—but it doesn’t have to be so hard, and you don’t have to do it alone.
If you’re looking to finally tackle the things that have been tripping you up, this is the place for you. We’ll meet, and talk about the things going on in your life (sounds too simple, right?). I’ll listen, ask questions, and together we’ll work to identify the moments where things seem to get off track. Over time, we’ll figure out which old patterns of relating, behaving, and thinking may not be helpful any longer, even if they worked well in the past. Then, using humor, education, practice, and conversation, we’ll work together to get things moving again.
Reaching out is often the hardest step to take, and I know that it takes real courage to step up to the plate. I also know that you know that everything worth doing starts somewhere.
At SHIFT Psychology, I’ll work with you to make sense of what feels off and find the way forward that is uniquely yours. When you’re ready, take that first step and reach out so we can get started.
It’s about damn time, isn’t it?
