Will is a trusted colleague to whom I frequently refer clients, confident that they will receive excellent care. In addition to his exceptional expertise – he’s written one of the most important books on men’s psychology to come along sin years – he’s also a wonderfully warm, helpful and authentic person. – Dan Quinn, Psy.D.
If you’re like most men, you’ve learned to hide emotional pain. But hiding emotional pain only worsens it, and can cause other personal, family, work, or financial problems.
It really pains me to see so many men suffering alone, in silence. Especially since depression, anxiety and the other emotional concerns that affect us can all be effectively treated with counseling. So, helping men to lead the most fulfilling lives they can remains a lifelong passion of mine.
“Talk therapy” – or psychotherapy or counseling – is a proven effective way to reduce anxiety and depression, and to feel better about yourself and your life. Every man experiences emotional concerns at some point. Don’t let them get the upper hand. Therapy for men really works.
You wouldn’t walk on a broken ankle forever. Don’t suffer from emotional concerns one day longer.
