Men’s Health Counseling
What does it mean to be a healthy man in today’s world?
The meaning has changed drastically since my dad’s time. It can be confusing and frustrating to define the man you can be proud of.
Many of us were taught the toxic male culture. Always be strong, never show weakness, control your emotions, don’t ever cry, solve your problems, and don’t ever ask for help.
My dad had a thing for noses. He would tell me to keep my nose clean and keep my nose to the grindstone. I think he meant stay out of trouble and work hard, so I guess I got the point.
I believe that being a man today is being human. With all the strengths and weaknesses it brings with it. It means showing emotion in a healthy way, having solid relationships, and always respecting women.
Being a man means that failure and weakness are normal. That’s it’s OK to cry.
Being a man means being yourself, not someone else’s idea of who you should be or who you think you should be.
I can help you discover who you are and be proud of yourself.
