Therapists Specializing in Men'S Health in Texas

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 Texas have been vetted by the Zencare team for clinically rigorous, quality care. Visit their profiles to watch an introductory video and book a free initial call to find a good fit!

Dear prospective client: Thank for your checking out my information. As a psychologist and marriage and family therapist with many years of experience, I work with all types of emotional and relationship challenges.

I like to start by learning about your background – how your family and life experiences have made you the person you are. I then like to focus on a simple question – if you are able to achieve everything you want in therapy, how will your life be different? We then use that perspective to lay out realistic objectives and a plan to realize those objectives. As a university professor in addition to being a practicing psychologist, I’ve dedicated my professional life to learning the most effective approaches to therapy. Based on that knowledge, we collaborate to develop a customized plan for you if the focus is on just you as an individual or both you and your partner if we are working on relationship goals. We then put that plan into action, checking in to make sure that we are making progress toward achieving your goals.

Helping people have the most meaningful life possible is the central theme of my life’s work. I’d be honored to work with you in achieving a more rewarding and joyful life.

CORE VALUES EXPLAINED:

Self-Awareness Is The Cornerstone Of Living A True & Connected Life - Discovering your true self, is mental exercise. Sometimes, you get a better workout when you have a trainer in the gym with you. I consider myself the trainer. I bring the exercise plan & encourage you.

The Science Of Psychology Should Be Applied With Compassion & In Trust - My practice is clinical my personality is not. The relationship I develop with my clients is equally as important as the best practices, psychological modalities & principles of neuroscience I apply. I pack a full load of compassion in my professional tool bag. Without it, we cannot develop rapport & trust. Ultimately, trust fuels the most powerful work we will do together.

Wellness Is Physical, Emotional, Intellectual & Spiritual - I believe wellness is the hum of the 4 basic human needs working in alignment with your true self. Wellness is achieved when all 4 elements are playing the same song. I named my practice Village Counseling & Wellness because my goal is to help clients achieve wellness.

Humans Are Inherently Resilient-We Grow When Our Mindset Is Effectively Grounded - There's a disconnect in this technologically connected world. People tend to hide behind facades like perfect, important, smart/ busy. We need to strip away these facades & be more mindful everyday in order to be our best selves. We need to ground ourselves in reality, know our strengths & fuel our fire with self-belief.

People seek therapy for a myriad of reasons, and in my experience, the common denominator is pain; seeking relief from emotional pain. Your pain may be about your sense of self, certain relationships, a traumatic event, ongoing attachment trauma or existential angst, to name a few. We might look at how you are protecting yourself and if those methods are helpful and adaptive. If they are, great; keep doing it! If they aren’t, we would examine other possible strategies.

I thoroughly enjoy getting to know each of you and understanding how you experience yourself, others and the world around you. Once we have learned more about each other, we will work collaboratively throughout the therapeutic process. I will challenge maladaptive patterns of thinking and relating and offer alternative perspectives. I do not make decisions for you, as you are the one who has to live with your decisions, whether positive or negative consequences.

Initially, I always recommend weekly therapy sessions so we can use that momentum to create change. As therapy progresses, the frequency of sessions will change. I am an out-of-network provider and I know that therapy can be expensive. I hope you can recognize the value in investing in yourself and your emotional health and well-being, which also affects your physical health. I look forward to hearing from you!

I value creating a safe space for others to heal. Both with children and adults, I see my role as "walking with" in the journey of life. I assess and strive to understand where the person is at and help identify together their goals for therapy. When working with children, my approach is non-directive play therapy in combination with parent-child psychotherapy. I see my work with families as a collaborative process where I partner and join the parents/caregivers to build a stronger relationship with their child or adolescent.

In working with adults who have had traumatic experiences, I begin by building a solid foundation and being curious about how they would like to grow in their lives. I offer a practical perspective in order to move through experiences that have affected their current life. Together, we determine goals and next steps so that healing can occur in a supportive and nurturing environment.

I am grateful and honored that I am able to work with clients. Being a strong advocate for children and supporting adults as they navigate life is something that I enjoy and value.

I believe that each of us has a deep-seated desire to know others and be known by others. When this doesn't happen, we often find ourselves isolated and feeling alone - even when surrounded by others.

I will create a safe space where you can explore, know, and understand your whole self, even the parts that you’re sometimes afraid to look at. I will help you remove shame, fear, loneliness, and guilt so that you can manifest your authentic self. I can help you get unstuck and discover who you really are. I can help you overcome the pain of rejection and embrace your authentic self.

Taking the first step to begin therapy can be challenging, but you won’t regret it. By now, you have already learned ways to tolerate life’s painful challenges. You don’t have to do this alone. Take the next step and call me today.

I respect the risk that is involved with rendering oneself vulnerable in the presence of another, and I offer a nonjudgmental, collaborative opportunity to explore concerns deemed relevant by you. I am invested in understanding your concerns in the context of your life experience and discovering opportunities to heighten your awareness regarding the influences of your past and how you can apply this understanding to better cope with current challenges.

I work with young and older adults who are trying to balance school, career, relationships or are trying to take a different approach towards caring for their mental health. I have specific experience working with anxiety and mood disorders.

I welcome the opportunity to discover whether we might be a good fit as you work towards your goals. Please feel free to reach out with any questions you may have that might help facilitate this.

Hello folks, I hope we can form a therapeutic relationship in order for me to provide you with my clinical expertise and lifetime of experiences in order for you to improve the quality of your life in order for you to thrive!

Through Cognitive Restructuring, I can teach you the skills to prevent those negative anxiety-producing thoughts from ruminating out of control until you find yourself down that old familiar “rabbit hole” that we can’t get out of.

As a biracial adopted individual, who has experienced significant past trauma, I can certainly relate to ethnic identity and cultural related concerns from a Trauma-Informed lens.

But wait, there’s more! As part of the LGBTQI+ community, I can provide guidance and therapy to individuals who struggle with sexual or gender identity concerns.

Hope to see you soon!

-Kennedy

Good therapy works. However, there are often barriers between you and "good therapy." It's hard to find a therapist that is a fitting match, hard to look at your life with honesty, and hard to work on becoming a better person. I understand that this process of finding a therapist is oftentimes daunting, frustrating, and difficult. Whether we end up working together or not, I want to use this message to encourage you to take a deep breath, relax your shoulders, and keep at it. It typically works best for clients to schedule consultations with a couple different therapists, and try to get a sense for which pairing feels like a good fit. Trust your gut - you'll know it when you find it. All the while, I hope you remember one thing that I find to be abundantly clear: good therapy works!
