  • You are a straight guy or a gay guy who is looking for individual therapy from a male therapist who is an expert in men's psychology, for help on everything from depression, to anxiety, OCD, PTSD, ADD, Panic Disorder, Bipolar Disorder, Agoraphobia, Social Anxiety, or others      
  • You think traditional therapy isn't right for you, and you want a more active, collaborative, coaching relationship                    
  • You want help not just with your mind/mood, but with your body, nutrition, fitness, finances, home organization, and all aspects of life                    
  • You're facing health challenges such as HIV, cancer, diabetes, MS, sports injury, accident, or combat trauma, and want emotional support beyond medical care                    
  • You want to augment your individual therapy with a group experience with like-minded guys with similar problems to yours                    
  • You're in sales or other high-profile work and need public relations coaching to maximize your impact and effectiveness in your work
  • You've been labeled a "sex addict" by others, and you want an alternative model to this kind of blaming/shaming thinking, but still want to get help          
  • You're single and you want help to find a partner/spouse, and to be coached on the practical skills of how to do it
