We've all been affected by a narrow and damaging definition of masculinity.
Maybe you grew up in a black-and-white culture about what it meant to be masculine or feminine and need healing, or maybe you're starting to recognize you don't want to do things the way past generations did. I help people recover from the effects of toxic gender roles and find new ways to be who they were meant to be.
I grew up as an athlete and an artist. Unfortunately, that combo meant I didn't really fit anywhere. Among the jocks, I was too sensitive. Among the creatives, I was too athletic. On and on. And when I got drafted to play semi-professional hockey, it only got worse. That duality was a key component in why I first sought therapy years ago. I was tired of feeling like I had to choose between parts of myself.
If you, like me, want more for the next generation than men who expect a pat on the back for not being an a-hole, but you're not sure how to get there, I think I can help.
Maybe you're straight; maybe you're gay; maybe you don't know. Maybe you're a man; maybe you're a woman; maybe you don't know; maybe that's changing. Regardless, if you've been hurt by, or been part of engendering, toxic masculinity, get in touch.
