Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist in Westlake Village, CA
Sometimes, our desires and our preferences don’t always correspond with our self-image and the image that our friends and family have of us. Other times, we may feel misunderstood or shamed by those who mean the most to us. Sexuality is a very broad topic that requires gentle exploration and a curious, non-judgmental approach. The goal is be congruent with our sexual identity and to accept who we are as healthy, sexual beings.
In my experience, men tend to conform to societal expectations of masculinity, which may cause harm to our sense of self. Men often struggle to appear to be strong and stoic, which can be the cause of many emotional and physical health problems. Sometimes, working with a male therapist can help contribute significant insight into the issues that men experience. Accordingly, therapy can serve as a tool to empower men to feel confident in their identity and their masculinity.
Change can be difficult whether it is positive or negative. Many people seek therapy to explore how major life changes impact our mood and our sense of self. Therapy can help you make sense of your feelings in regards to the changes occurring in your life. These feelings may be difficult and painful to explore, but making sense of those feelings can promote personal growth and insight.
