Five Minutes Closer To Relaxation, Creativity + Enhanced Intuition

Men and Therapy

Professional men living in New York City are often so busy with their lives that they forget to check in with themselves. Men often suffer in silence because of societal expectations about how they should behave. Asking for help is viewed or felt by men as shameful or unnecessary -- men are wired to fix things on their own. A man should be able to solve his own problems! The problem is, men often don't know what's wrong!
