  • Men’s Issues

    Many men today are struggling to make sense of themselves, as feminist ideas, thankfully,  gain mainstream attention. If you’re a man, you may be asking questions like:

    • Is masculinity really “toxic”?

    • What does life in a post-#MeToo world look like for me?

    • How do I find my way as a man in this modern age?

    Good news—healthy masculinity exists; dating can still be fun and exciting; and asking these questions means you’re ready to start respecting others and yourself.

    Feminism can give you some new perspectives on your identity that will likely feel better for you than the rigid norms of traditional masculinity. I’m here to support you in exploring these new ways of living and relating, so that you can be the best version of yourself—for the benefit of all.

    Therapy for Problematic Sexual Behaviors

    Sex is a valid human need, and different factors can influence your relationship to sex and its role in your life. If your sexual behaviors are causing unwanted effects on your relationships, work, or lifestyle, I can provide non-judgmental support from a sex-positive perspective, so you can integrate and align your sexual life with your goals, identity, and desires.

    Together, we can work through issues including:

    • Problematic porn usage
    • Infidelity
    • Compulsive sexual behaviors
    • Intrusive sexual thoughts

    We’ll start by exploring your relationship to sex and its impact on your life. Then we can determine the values and goals you have for your sexual life and beyond, at which point we can develop perspectives, priorities, and practices that are more aligned with these. This can be done alone or, if you’re experiencing issues in your relationships due to your behaviors, with your partner(s).
