Therapy For Men in Woodbridge, CT

Many men have had negative experiences in the past with counseling or therapy (especially in couple’s therapy). Current statistics estimate that 9 out of 10 licensed therapists are women, and many male counselors tend to have a more feminine point of view.

Men often feel judged, ganged-up on, or forced to try to become someone they’re not when they go to counseling.

We get it – we’ve had the same experiences ourselves.

At Arcadian Counseling we offer therapy for men – especially for guys who don’t like therapy. Or think they won’t. Or have been burned before.

With over a decade of experience and extensive training we can help you to quickly uncover the real issues and provide solutions that are tough to discover on your own. Through our own experiences in counseling, and our training, we have seen firsthand what does and doesn’t work for men in counseling.

Our approach is fast, effective, and focused on getting results. We know how men like to work, so we approach men’s counseling from a problem/solution standpoint, and we work with you to solve problems as quickly as possible.

The list of concerns why men seek counseling at Arcadian Counseling in Greater New Haven seems endless, but the types of men’s problems that we most commonly see include:

  • Marital Problems
  • Help Managing Anxiety
  • Communication Skills
  • Affairs (both men and women)
  • Divorce Advice
  • Alcohol Abuse
  • Porn Addiction
  • Help With Depression

No matter what issue you are facing, we can help guide you through it.

Most men feel like they are supposed to be strong and fearless, but that doesn’t mean they don’t face challenges in their life. Recognizing the problems in your own life and reaching out for help is not a sign of weakness. Don’t let yourself stay stuck. If you are struggling with any of the problems on the list above, or if you just feel stuck in general, we’d love to, and can, help.

There are a lot of misconceptions about therapy for men such as:

  • It is for women
  • It is too touchy-feely
  • It involves talking things to death
  • It takes forever
  • It doesn’t work if you don’t cry

The reality is, none of these are true. In fact, working with us is similar to chatting with a friend over a beer by the fire– except there is no beer. Therapy for Men at Arcadian Counseling is ‘guy-friendly’ and focused on problem solving, not touchy-feely or focused on analyzing your relationship with your mother or your childhood.

With over a decade of experience, we have learned that men need a little bit of a different approach to counseling to get the results they want. Our approach is always solution-focused, goal-oriented, and includes a plan of action.

Depending on what you need, counseling may require only a few meetings, or it may take meeting for a couple of months to get the changes you needEither way, we will have a concrete plan after the first meeting.

  • Answers to questions men frequently wrestle with (from someone who has had men’s problems too)
  • Tools that work for men
