Counseling for Men at Thriveworks in The Woodlands, TX
Gender stereotypes are a prevalent and relentless force in today’s society. Not all are negative, but many are. All these expectations and stereotypes can build up and snowball into mental health issues. As a man, society expects you to be strong, unyielding, successful, ambitious, a leader, and never emotional. It can feel like you are the only one struggling with the burden of these expectations.
If you are feeling alone in your struggles with mental health or societal stereotypes, know that Thriveworks in The Woodlands is here. Men can feel both positive and negative emotions- and strong emotions too! Men struggle with mental health of all types, and it is time their struggle is brought to light.
Counseling for Men at Thriveworks in The Woodlands is built to help you gain a deeper understanding of what is going on in your life and give you the action steps to heal, grow, and succeed in the ways you have imagined for yourself.

What Is Counseling for Men?
Men and women will face many of the same issues. However, studies have shown that in some important ways, the way men and women experience these mental health issues is very different. Thriveworks The Woodlands always individualizes our sessions to meet you where you’re at. Part of this means adapting a session to accurately reflect the unique struggles men encounter in their mental health.
Whatever you are facing, Thriveworks The Woodlands promises to be client-centered and nonjudgmental. Our clients come in facing problems from college graduation to messy divorces to trauma. Nothing you bring in will be too big or too small for our The Woodlands counselors. Our goal is not to tell you what to do or make all your problems disappear, but to be by your side as we problem solve and heal together. Sometimes, all you need is a little space to simply be- to process, sit, and explore. Other times, you need more advanced therapeutic techniques to help you. Our The Woodlands therapists are trained and excellent in both.
What Does Counseling for Men look like?
Many of the therapeutic techniques you will encounter in a Counseling for Men session can be found in other topic-specific sessions. It’s how our counselors apply these techniques that will be different. Society has taught you to push away emotions, think practically, and fill the role you’ve been assigned.
Thriveworks in The Woodlands thinks society has no place telling you how to think, feel, and live. When the expectations of society are weighing heavily on you, we can help lift some of the load. Taking a step back and acknowledging the stereotypes you’re expected to fit into is often the first step in finding your freedom.
Any issue can be address in Counseling for Men, but some are more common than others. A few of the more common situations we see in Men’s Counseling include:
- Life coaching
- Grief counseling
- Couples counseling
- Career counseling
- Sexual issues
Just as your physical or financial health is important enough to dedicate time and energy towards them, your mental and emotional health is just as important in living a healthy, well balanced, and fulfilling life. It can seem impossible to juggle them all, but our counselors in The Woodlands are here to teach you how and encourage you every step of the way!
You have the power to make yourself into the person you want to be. The path society has set for you doesn’t have to be the path you follow. For more information, or to schedule an appointment today, give us a call at 281-667-9790.
