FOUNDER & CEO
Hi. I'm glad you're here.
YOU NEED A THERAPIST WHO WILL JOIN YOU THROUGH THE TRUTH.
There are MANY options for therapists, and you need a to find a therapist who is a good fit for you.
MY MISSION IS TO EMPOWER MEN, NEW DADS, AND THEIR PARTNERS.
Many men won't typically seek mental health treatment. If they do, then they don't typically receive gender-sensitive care. Imagine working with an experienced male therapist who's ready to be your Right Hand Therapy Man.
NASW VALUES = MY VALUES
Dignity and Worth of Every Person
Importance of Human Relationships
My values are intentionally adopted from the values of the National Association of Social Workers, which is the largest membership organization of professional social workers in the world, with more than 120,000 members.
I'm a member of NASW. This means that I'm committed to the NASW Code of Ethics, and I believe in its values, principles, and standards that guide social workers' everyday decision-making and professional conduct.
So, NASW Values = My Values.
noun: vigor and spirit or enthusiasm; energy; vitality.
