Starting Therapy for men

What is therapy for men?

Therapy for men maintains a focus on the emotional and mental impacts of being a man in society, dealing with issues like the pressures of toxic masculinity and the traditional familial roles of men, among others. Thriveworks Austin therapists who specialize in treating men work to create a safe space for them to emote and care for their mental well-being without fear of judgment.

How does therapy for men work?

Therapy for men has many aspects of traditional psychotherapy, but it also maintains a clear person-centered and humanistic approach. Thriveworks Austin therapists will work with men to reach their therapy goals through self-reflection and introspection—uncovering specific emotional, behavioral, and mental patterns that are having a negative effect or are inhibiting personal growth and slowly working to change them over time.

Is therapy for men conducted in person or online?

Therapy for men at Thriveworks is conducted both in person and online by video. We encourage you to choose the option that works best for you.

How long does therapy for men last?

Therapy for men can last for a few months or occur over the course of years, often continuing until the client feels that their goals are met and their desired growth has been achieved. However, it will likely last at least five months, as that is the average amount of time it takes for the therapeutic process to take effect and bring about lasting change.

Need more help deciding?

Men have a great deal of demands on their time. Work, family, friends, health; the list can go on and on. At times, the stress of daily life can be simply too much to handle. Work is not going well, there is fighting at home, and you seem to be just losing control of all the things you care about in life. Men are often expected to be strong and silent. While this can be helpful for resiliency, it can also create communication problems and a lack of coping skills. Whether the daily challenges of life are causing you to consider counseling, or you are dealing with a serious trauma or psychological issue, we are here to help.

Thriveworks counselors can help you press the pause button on life. We can help you find perspective and patience for the challenging times. We have counselors that are skilled and experienced in helping men with many different issues. Addictions, grief counseling, career counseling, life coaching, couples counseling and divorce recovery are just some of the specialties that are helpful to men. We will match you with a counselor that is well equipped to deal with your particular need and place in life.

Many counseling offices operate with long waiting lists. Thriveworks is different. We understand that it can be overwhelming to make that first phone call for help. When you call us for the first time, we have appointments available within 24 hours. We are ready to help when we are needed.

Call Thriveworks today. Let’s get to work.

Amazing!!! I am beyond happy with the services provided by Dr. Nunez. She has been so amazing with my children and I am beyond grateful for her and ThriveWorks. I’d recommend her to anyone. She is incredibly talented and listens without judgement. If I could I’d give her a zillion stars for having the most positive, profound impact on our lives!

I needed someone who was strong, kind, listened and was action oriented who had the experience to deal with the trauma I was struck with when I experienced severe loss of a loved one in 2016. Linda was and is present, intelligent, professional, human, warm and kind and at every session she has offered me practical solutions to face my life and my day to day activities. I highly recommend her. She Is so good it is very hard to get an appointment with her but if you can get one keep it. She is fabulous and will heal your spirit and soul in a safe and loving place. I love her strength more than anything and her optimism that anyone can get to a better place and not be stuck in pain and hopelessness. She is healing my heart and I feel like I have found a person who truly cares. This is a very good place.

I am gonna cry as I write this review... I have been working with Linda M. since I was married to my abusive ex husband and through my single time and my time meeting and marrying my current very wonderful husband. She has pushed me to be the very best person I can be and literally saved my life on several occasions. I'm moving to VA so I can't see Linda anymore and I'm telling you, this is my hardest goodbye. This woman is beyond amazing. She has forced me to take a good hard look at myself and work on everything: anxiety, borderline and PTSD to make me be a better person. You CANNOT go wrong with Linda. It's amazing how much one person and one session can change your life. I've tried therapy before, many times, with no luck until I got dragged to Thriveworks by someone close to me who wanted therapy to fix me! Well it didn't "fix me" it made me a totally new person. A happier, more confident person willing to take on the world. I even wanted Linda to come to my wedding, but knew she couldn't as she is very professional and this is against policy. But I would have had her there in a heart beat!

Sadly, I was in at vulnerable time and felt taken advantage of with Lisa. She was late for appointments and cut appointments short with no apology. I had been charged for full appointments. If the patient is late or misses, we are charged regardless of the circumstances. Unfortunately, it doesn't go the other way with the therapists. I felt she was defended by Thriveworks for her actions. I can only hope that for the sake of the patients this will change.

My teenage daughter with diagnosed social anxiety and anxiety and depression was dropped because your counselor could not meet at times that worked for the patient. No other doctor was recommended. A nice note was written but now I’m empty handed with a serious situation. And you all dumped us.
