Mens health, coaching, counseling - St. Louis

We Can Help You succeed and thrive

Being a man can be harder than people think. Men are supposed to know what to do, be confident, have it together, be exciting and make the first move, and many more. Lots of men feel like a failure and just not enough to make it. You can get out of that trap because being a man is about much more than all this, and it starts with stepping out of the “hero games” where you have to the best, or not emotional, or whatever else you have been taught. You can enjoy the best man in you by changing the way you approach life and your relationships.

Counseling doesn’t have to be a stereotype of crying and just feeling exposed (although that happens at times cause it is normal) — there is much more to you than that, and there is much more to our work together as well. This is a space for you to figure out how you will thrive in this world with all the tasks, pressures and challenges you have. We know how to support you on that journey and are ready to do so.

Ways men can feel better.

It all starts with recognizing what is going wrong, and this can be harder to do than you think. Our trained experts help you figure out what is actually going wrong, and then understand how you can start this going right. Is it sometimes to do with feelings—yes. Is that ever simply it—no. If your relationships aren’t working, or your career is stuck, or you can’t get up and motivated, or you can’t get over that next hurdle, or anxiety just keeps biting you, or … (we could do on for a while), then we can help you. You will make changes, and things will be different. This can be challenging, but it is also rewarding.

If you feel weird or reluctant to do “counseling”, then think of it as working with a personal coach. Our counselors/coaches/other men can help you work on all of the following:

  • Depression and anxiety

  • Anger (and confusing “blow ups”)

  • Relationship issues — both sexual and non-sexual

  • Struggles to function at work or in business

  • Confidence and self-esteem

  • Sexual behaviors/concerns

  • Feeling totally overwhelmed and stuck

  • Career direction

  • Identity confusion

  • More… (if we didn’t list it, it doesn’t mean that its not a real thing).

What Will mens counseling look like?

The first thing we need to do is understand exactly where you are and what your current needs are. We will talk with you about this during your first few sessions. Then, we focus your ongoing sessions on implementing change and resolving underlying tensions that keep you stuck. We may recommend techniques that are all evidence based and effective! We often work with clients in the following ways:

  • Understanding the impact of your current struggle

  • Making life changes that are effective

  • Figuring out the relational damage and impact

  • Resolving underlying causes and patterns that keep people stuck

  • Cultivating a satisfying life with close, intimate relationships and real joy
