Due to a variety of cultural, social and biological factors, men experience their mental health differently than their female counterparts. At Elevated Counseling & Wellness, we understand men and men's issues and view any mental health challenge that a man might face, through the lens of social pressure, cultural expectations and societal upbringing. With experience and clinical expertise, we have developed a passion for helping men to overcome mental health issues that may be further complicated by the pressures of a modern world. From anger and depression, to addiction, work related stress and relationship difficulties, an expertise in men's issues can better facilitate your growth as a happy and healthy 21st century man.
From child abuse and bullying to accidents and sexual assault, any of a wide variety of traumatic events can have long lasting effects on a man's well-being and quality of life experience. In response to this trauma, men can struggle to form and maintain connections or to achieve their goals in their personal or professional lives and may struggle with addictions or other poor coping behaviors. Our providers have background in working with trauma survivors in residential, hospital and/or crisis settings and have developed an expertise in various forms of trauma therapy, tailored specifically for men. By implementing a trauma informed approach, as well as strategies related to social justice, somatic experiencing and EMDR or Brain Spotting where appropriate, we can work to overcome the residual effects of any traumatic event and help you to be your best self.
Relationships can be our greatest source of happiness, as well as our greatest source of distress. Whether you're hoping to improve or establish a relationship with an intimate partner or family member, guidance from a qualified psychotherapist can be helpful. We understand that many men were not taught or encouraged to develop the tools for healthy relationships and will work to fill this gap from a perspective of practical application. From heteronormative to non-heteronormative relationships, with a culturally informed expertise in issues related to attachment, betrayal, codependency, communication and conflict management, we can work together to find greater connection and enjoyment in your relationships. With providers trained in evidence based couples counseling and relationship coaching approaches, we can support you on your journey towards happy and healthy relationships.
Depression & Anxiety
For men, symptoms of depression and anxiety often present differently than typically expected. Men may experience anger, irritability, substance abuse or other unique characteristics along with their mood struggles. At Elevated Counseling & Wellness, we understand the intricacies of men's mental health and take and informed stance in working with men from all walks of life. Through a combination of cognitive behavioral and psychodynamic, as well as existential techniques and integrative techniques, we work to provide men with the opportunity to discover both immediate and long lasting change. With genuine empathy, unconditional positive regard and a true understanding of men's mental health, we are hopeful that we can work to support you in being the best man you can be.
Adolescents & Young Men
Attachment refers to the thoughts, feelings and behaviors that arise in our relationships, particularly in our most intimate relationships. In a modern society, men have not always been supported in developing an attachment pattern that allows for healthy connection. Especially for men, maladaptive, avoidant or insecure attachment patterns can become especially frustrating as they create barriers to genuine intimacy and fulfilling relationships. Regardless of where you find yourself along the spectrum of attachment patterns, working with a therapist who truly understands these interpersonal dynamics can allow for greater personal growth and security in current or future relationships. Whether you're looking to improve an existing relationship or establish a new one, our mental health providers will support you in session to develop and refine the skills needed out of session.
Gay & Bisexual Men
Being a teenage boy or father to one is absolutely challenging, these formative years are full of highs and lows, tough lessons, as well as wins and losses. Growing up in today's socio-cultural-political climate presents a wide variety challenges for young and adolescent men, including challenges related to technology and modern day social expectations, as well as bullying and educational demands. As young men begin to develop personal identities, values systems, social connections and life direction, it is helpful to have guidance from someone experienced in working with the challenges facing young men today. With providers who have extensive experience working with teenage and young adult men, you can rest assured that we have the skills and tools needed to get through to your teen.

In addition, Elevated Counseling & Wellness can support you in identifying resources that will help you to reach new heights through both individual and community support.
Throughout the course of a relationship, mistakes will be made and men may want to continue the relationship and seek repair, or in some cases, seek guidance in working towards separation. Betrayal is an extremely emotional and sensitive topic, with relationship experts experienced in navigating betrayal, repair or reconciliation and separation, men can get the support they need to get their lives back on track. By understanding the way that social and cultural factors influence men's mental health, our providers can best guide men in repairing their relationship or in moving on with their lives.
Family is an incredibly important aspect of a man's life experience. Healthy family support can be an immense blessing facilitating growth in just about every domain of our lives. Despite love for one another many families can find themselves operating in unhealthy patterns creating conflict and dysfunction. In these situations working with a family therapist can help to regain a state of equilibrium and healthy function so you can get back to enjoying family time. Along with this, parenting in a modern world is fraught with challenges, we support Dad's in overcoming these challenges for both themselves and their families.
Grief & Loss
Grief and loss are unfortunate facts of life and the pain of having lived and loved. Men often experience grief in specific ways, outside of the normative expectation, frequently in ways that are unique to them. Some men may need to share their story and have witness to their pain, while others may need tools and practical applications for processing grief and loss. Whether you are grieving a loved who who has passed on, a past relationship, job or even a pet, our providers are ready to walk this path with you.
