Therapists Specializing in Men'S Health in Connecticut

Mental health challenges can affect anyone, regardless of gender or sex. That said, men experience higher rates of some mental health conditions and tend to be less likely to receive treatment than women. This could be because men’s mental health remains, to some extent, tied up with traditional gender expectations and roles. As a result, some men are apprehensive about speaking about their emotions, disclosing their difficulties, or seeking help. Many experience loneliness, depression, or anxiety. Seeking the opinion of a professional regarding a mental health concern is an important step towards recovery and part of an important recognization that everyone struggles at times.

Many different therapeutic modalities can be beneficial for the range of potential mental health challenges. The best-fitting therapy will depend on each individuals’ preferences, as well as the specific difficulties experienced.

Discuss the options with one of the therapists below who specializes in men’s mental health, many of whom are men themselves. Some men prefer to find a male therapist with whom they feel comfortable developing a strong and trusting therapeutic relationship. Therapists in Connecticut have been vetted by the Zencare team for clinically rigorous, quality care.

Choosing the right therapist to help guide you through this moment in your life is an important decision. I know reaching out can be hard - even intimidating, which is why every effort is made to ensure your experience with me is handled with professionalism, empathy, kindness, and respect.

My goal is to help clients develop new skills and insights to improve the quality of their lives, relationships, and careers and move from surviving to thriving. Clients have described their experience with me as refreshingly honest and authentic, focused and purpose-driven. I’m often told by clients: “This isn’t what I expected – but in a good way.” Contact me today to get started.

When we feel overwhelmed by our sadness, worry, and anger we often don't know how to cope. We might yell when we don't mean to or lack the confidence we need to succeed at work. We worry too much, think too fast or find it hard to motivate ourselves. Shame and guilt prevent us from thriving the way we deserve and so we ruminate on the past and can't imagine the future. I believe our ability to manage our feelings is deeply connected to our relationships with others and talking with a psychologist who is understanding, insightful, and compassionate can help us improve those relationships, handle our emotions, and feel better.

All you need to bring to therapy is an open mind and a willingness to explore. I am a very interactive therapist; I give a lot of feedback and guidance. In my work with individuals, I help people see how they developed the coping skills and defense mechanisms they did, and how to begin recognizing them in a less judgmental way. I also teach couples new communication skills: how to rebuild trust and safety after a breach, how to mirror one another, ways to validate and empathize. We work on breaking bad patterns and create healthier ones using positivity and appreciations.

It's so rewarding to help children, couples and families heal old and current wounds, and to see my clients use therapy as a way to soar to new emotional freedoms. Please don't be in pain anymore: contact me so we can set goals together, develop healthier ways of coping, and watch you blossom

The focus of my work is simple: helping you to increase the happiness and fulfillment you experience in your life. How exactly we do that is something I hope to explore and identify together. I know first hand that deciding to make a lasting change in your life takes real strength and courage. I also know that the fruits of that labor are almost always well worth it. Through a collaborative approach, I work to help you take back control of your life, and to close the gap between the person you want to be and the person you are today.

I specialize in working with young adults and adolescents who are experiencing difficult periods of transition. Whether you are experiencing stress, anxiety, anger, depression, uncertainty about the present or future, or just have a sense that things could be better, I look forward to learning about what is causing you to seek help, and offering you the tools to live life on your terms.

Responding to life's demands and challenges can be painstaking and painful. Finding direction and fulfillment in adulthood can be challenging. There is a great deal of pressure to get it right. Some days are good, motivation is high, and everything clicks. Other days there is no motivation, everything drags, and it can just be easier not to think about what comes next.

If being stuck in this loop resonates, you're in the right place.

If you struggle with the tension between knowing what to do and not being able to do it, I can help.

I built my practice to support these kinds of challenges. I have extensive experience helping clients find meaning and purpose throughout adulthood. I believe in an integrative approach that addresses career and academic challenges, mental health concerns, substance use, and health and wellness.

My work is highly individualized, built on a foundation of trust and collaboration where goals are outlined and achieved. I aim to empower my clients to work through what they are facing and help guide them along their journey towards betterment.

Although the future is uncertain, it can also be bright. I commend those brave enough to seek support. It would be my pleasure to guide and support you in your process. I truly believe you will not have a counseling experience like this anywhere else.
