Men's Therapy in Seattle, WA

Man holding cell phone sitting on stairs | Seattle WA TherapistWe live in a society where boys are often brought up to believe that they should never ask for help, that emotions are weakness, and that emotional and relational issues are problems to be solved through logic and rationale. Growing up with these beliefs can result in individuals identifying as male who struggle with their mental health, personal relationships, as well as their own inner thoughts and feelings.

We get it, it’s hard to ask for help. But it simply isn’t true that asking for help means that you are weak or have failed in any way. Perhaps courage and bravery is allowing yourself to be vulnerable enough to lean on someone else when you need it, be that friends, family, spouses, or professionals.

Everyone needs help at times, especially during an experience like what we're all having right now given Covid-19. Many men have developed long-standing defenses and other ways of coping with the challenges in their lives that interfere with their ability to enjoy satisfying relationships, realize their goals, and fully experience their lives.

Online Therapy for Men in South Lake Union - Seattle, WA

An experienced and skilled therapist can help you understand how you get in your own way at times and provide you with real-world solutions.

As our culture shifts and we begin to better understand and value men’s vulnerability, increasing numbers of men are recognizing the importance of counseling and therapy to help work past their roadblocks. The stigma that used to be associated with counseling is rapidly diminishing, thanks in part to public figures, popular culture, and regular people just like you who have become more visible and forthcoming about their own experiences.

We're finally realizing that accepting help and seeking therapy doesn’t mean that there is something inherently “wrong” with us. In fact, it’s quite the opposite – it takes a great deal of strength to own our challenges and share them with someone else.

What we know today about brain science and human behavior helps us to help you in generating your own wisdom around emotions, behaviors, and attributes. Using this knowledge, we can help you to understand your actions, thoughts, and feelings. We're so fortunate to live in a time when social norms and cultural expectations are changing and we have so much freedom to learn and express ourselves in ways that are healthier than they've ever been.

When we believe that certain behaviors or ideas are “masculine,” we can create problems not only within our own selves but also within our relationships. The insight you receive from your sessions at Clarity Counseling Seattle help you deepen your understanding of potentially harmful beliefs and assumptions about gender and masculinity for improved emotional and relational health.
