Therapy Resistant MEN (and women) – Todd Helps Them Engage

Todd Harvey, MFT

Todd Harvey, MFT

I'm great at helping "Therapy Resistant Men" feel comfortable seeing the benefits of participating in Couples Counseling.

As a formely "Therapy Resistant Male" myself, I can understand the many reasons that men feel uncomfortable going to couples counseling.

For me, I didn't want my "dirty laundry" to be aired in front of somebody else.  I also felt like if I went to counseling, that it would mean that I was a failure somehow.  It wasn't that I didn't want to fix my relationship.  That couldn't be further than the truth.  It was more that "I" wanted to be the person who fixed it.  I thought that if I got help then it meant something about me was inadequate.  I also was afraid that Couples Counseling would just be a time where my partner teamed up with another woman to complain about me and try to get me to change.  Having to pay for that sounded awful!

I didn't realize how Couples Counseling can provide a great toolset to be able to transform my relationship.

If you are in a relationship with a guy or you are a guy that is a bit tentative about participating in couples counseling, know what some of the benefits are.

  1. I know what it is like.  And I'll make sure he doesn't get sabotaged!
  2. I don't pathologize men.  (nor women).
  3. In our first session, you will see that I will prevent the typical pattern of fighting and nagging from happening in the room.  I'll make sure your partner actually listens to you on a deep level.
  4. As a team, we will examine the patterns that we get stuck in.
  5. We'll practice Couples-Skills that enhance empathy and emotional connection (which 9 times out of 10 leads to more frequent and better sexual chemistry).
  6. If you are not satisfied 100% with our first session, you will get your money back, guaranteed!
