Therapists Specializing in Men'S Health in San Francisco Bay Area

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 San Francisco Bay Area have been vetted by the Zencare team for clinically rigorous, quality care.

It takes a great deal of courage to ask for help. Appreciating and respecting that courage, my work is to help my clients attain their goals, discarding whatever has prevented them from doing so in the past. I consider therapy a collaborative effort between the individual and therapist. My hope is that the clients with whom I work feel supported and empowered to make the changes they desire.

Treatment focuses on increasing awareness about life patterns, building on strengths, and developing new coping abilities. My professional strengths include: a knowledge of a variety of presenting issues and treatment options, an innate ability to connect easily with clients, and the capacity to incorporate the realities of daily living into the process.

It takes courage to ask for help. My goal is to help you go from feeling stuck in some area of your life, to achieving your own definition of success. It is time to close the gap between where you are right now and where you want to be in the future.

Life is not easy no matter who you are. We all have our own individual struggles, our own stories, moments of celebration among moments of sadness. I look forward to hearing your story and getting to know you.

“The truth is that our finest moments are most likely to occur when we are feeling deeply uncomfortable, unhappy, or unfulfilled. For it is only in such moments, propelled by our discomfort, that we are likely to step out of our ruts and start searching for different ways or truer answers” - M. Scott Peck

I encourage everyone to start with a 15 minute consultation. This will give us a chance to briefly connect and for you to see if its a good fit. I believe in trusting your gut instincts and this will give you a chance to see if it feels right.

We are, in part, the product of our history. The lessons and messages we learned from our history influence our choices and actions today. Sometimes, when we are burdened with so much pain, we may think, feel and do things that hurt us and those around us.

However, every day we have a new opportunity to change our choices and actions so that we can make our lives better, healthier, and more satisfying, which frankly I think is pretty awesome! We often forget this wisdom; we forget that we have this power to change, to choose again. We forget we deserve to be empowered and free!

We only get a finite time to live, love, and enjoy our life. It’s up to each of us to do what we can, and get the help we need when we struggle, to work toward our most authentic self, and strive for the cherished sense of empowered freedom we deserve. This is where my passion for this work resides, and I deeply desire to share this with you.

I believe that therapy should always be a safe environment, but "comfort" may need to be challenged in order for desired, transformative change to occur. My clients tend to come at a weekly session frequency for maintenance of a steady "flow" to our work.

My hope for any potential client is that they find the therapist that sufficiently aligns with their needs. If we find that after a couple sessions that our dynamic is not quite working, I will help you find a therapist that is a better fit.

Please feel free to contact me for a free, 15 minute phone consultation to determine whether we are a good therapeutic match. I look forward to hearing from you!

Making the decision to seek therapeutic services can often be an important one for many individuals and parents of children as they navigate a variety of challenges in their life. Some individuals may choose therapy to talk about feelings of sadness, anxiety, or frustration they have felt recently in their lives. For other individuals, they may have noticed a recent change in their child or teens behaviors, such as social withdrawl, anxiety, or non-compliance that seems to be associated with emotional distress. Working with a psychologist when a client or a client's child encounters these moments can provide a great sense of relief and confidence in a family's ability to manage these symptoms and changes in their daily life.

I have spent my life becoming educated so that I would have the opportunity to help children, adolescents, and adults obtain the life they are striving for and the ability to cope with life's adversities.

My education and research background uniquely qualify me to provide care to clients who can benefit from the positive influence of competent psychological care. I am trained to engage clients in a way, using evidence-based treatments, that will encourage them to become active participants in their own therapeutic process.

This is a great first step into getting what you want out of life.  It is so important to feel you have found someone with whom you can speak openly and freely. During our free initial consultation, I’ll answer any questions you have about therapy and explore what methods might be appropriate for you given your situation. The most important part of therapy is recognizing that you are on the right track to making progress towards your goals.

We’ll go over your goals and desires and how to evaluate reaching them. In the process, you’ll experience my style as a therapist and my commitment to helping you reach your personal therapy goals.

Difficulties do not have to hold us back. I work with my clients to transform their setbacks into constructive, empowering, life enhancing experiences. I provide therapy for creating permanent change in the way a person handles challenges and help them to find solutions for reaching their goals.

Maybe it's time to stop trying to think our way out of anxiety. “If I do this, I'll be ok,” or “Once I accomplish that and that other thing happens, then I’ll finally be ok."

Does it work? No it doesn't. It might give us a brief sense of relief that gets quickly replaced by the next wave of anxiety. Yet for some strange reason we keep practicing mental gymnastics in a futile attempt to calm the mind, only agitating it more. It's like we keep banging our heads agains a wall in an attempt to get rid of a headache. Are you ready to try something that works? Then let me tell you about how I work.

Besides utilizing the tools of traditional therapy (looking at the past for understanding the problem and shifting our negative thinking patterns), I use cutting edge body based techniques to help you reduce anxiety and feel better. These techniques bypass the thinking mind and address directly the source of anxiety in the body.
