For many American males, therapeutic counseling has a negative stigma attached to it. In reality, around 1 in 5 men in the US suffer from some form of depressive or anxiety-related disorder, and actively seeking help is nothing to be ashamed of.

We provide a judgement-free environment where you can feel comfortable expressing your thoughts and emotions, knowing that you are being truly listened to and respected.

The point being, it is normal for men to go through emotional downturns. More importantly, it is normal and beneficial to your mental health and overall well-being to be able to discuss these challenging emotions with a therapist trained to help navigate you through them.

Taking a Proactive and Educational Approach

At Suffolk Counseling Services, our therapists work to alleviate your struggles by providing factual information and data on what you are going through. We meet each of our clients where they are at emotionally, teaching them the strategies and solutions to help alleviate their unique discomforts. Unfortunately, our society has developed a tendency toward limiting men in their emotional development, convincing many males that expressing their feelings is a sign of weakness. The truth is that being able to admit you need help and talking about your inner emotions are signs of mental fortitude. Your mind is similar to a muscle in that it requires proper training to build strength, thus working toward achieving independence and emotional well-being.
