You may be reading this because there is something on your mind that you'd like to talk about.
Guys have way more going on emotionally than most of us are comfortable talking about. If you have never talked to someone about whatever it is that you probably should talk to someone about, then keep reading. Some men come to my office after they've recently broken up with their girlfriend (or she has broken up with him). Some are dealing with anxiety or are living under the influence of depression. Some guys are trying to figure out who they really are and what to do with their life. What they all have in common is that they have strengths to draw on and want to advance in life feeling better than they do now.
During our meetings, we will use your strengths to work together on getting you from where you are to where you want to be. We might look at your story, and how you think about it. We might look at aspects of your thinking and communicating styles which are known to impact mood and relationships. And beyond all this, we may look at core values and meaning.
When it comes to keeping your mind at its best though, here's a little secret: taking care of the basics of eating, sleeping, and working out, can change your life. Sometimes we need to talk, sometimes we need to speak with our doctor, and sometimes we need to hit the gym, eat well, and get some sleep. Keeping fit can also boost our energy, confidence and sex drive. It can also make us more resistant to stress and depression. When we meet, you can expect that we will take a look a the big picture of your life because everything is connected.
Walking is good for talking.
Whenever appropriate, we can take our conversations outside for a coffee and a walk around the city. It can be a comfortable and productive alternative to the usual way of meeting in an office. The important thing is to gain insights which will allow you to experience a more fulfilling and meaningful life and that can happen anywhere. Why not try something different? If this is of interest to you, just ask about it.
Whatever has brought you here today, I look forward to listening to whatever is on your mind, and to working with you to achieve your goals.
