Where do men turn today to get help and support for their struggles with feelings, relationships, stress, and other problems? Studies suggest that a majority of men struggle in silence. They may be socially isolated, their marital and other relationship problems may result in an inability to talk things over, and a combination of fear and shame inhibit them from reaching out to others. This group will focus on a variety of men's issues including Fathers and Fatherhood; Sex and Sexuality; Money, Work, and Career; Integrity and Purpose; Health and Well-being; and Emotions and Communication, especially among the members within the group.
Corey Flanders is counselor in Providence, RI with expertise in existential challenges, spiritual guidance, loss of meaning, anxiety, depression, and trauma. He combines excellence in evidence-based therapy techniques with his lifelong experience as a meditator to help clients move beyond symptoms and lead more fulfilling lives.
Corey specializes in supporting clients as they navigate any kind of challenging life transition, from the first year of college, to entering the working world, becoming a parent or an empty nester, and taking steps towards retirement. His expertise lies in helping clients find meaning or purpose during times of change, such as when life circumstances shift and you are no longer certain of who you are, what your relationships should look like, and what you’re meant to be doing.
Corey has additional training in a mind-body approach to healing trauma, which may include any kind of experience that threatens a client’s sense of safety. He builds upon each client's existing strengths, and gently guides survivors of trauma as they tap into their inner experience in order to move beyond recent or deeply hidden wounds.
Corey’s practice approach is informed by 20 years experience studying and practicing Buddhism and other contemplative traditions, including years as a novice monk, initiated medium, and over 400 days of silent retreat practice. His mission is to help clients reconnect with their passions, and access inner joy and resilience.
