Counseling for Women. A Happy Life is a Happy Wife.
Are you confused and insecure about your marriage, or about your boyfriend or husband?
Hi, I’m Jason and I’m a men’s counselor who often works with women who are struggling in their relationships with men.
So many women I talk with in therapy say that they wish their guy would open up more and express his true feelings. They just want their partner to listen to them so they can finally feel heard.
If your boyfriend or husband is like a lot of men that I see in my Phoenix Counseling office, he probably tries to fix problems instead of just listening and validating your feelings. And the closer you try to get to him, the further he seems to push away from you.
As a therapist working with men, I have found that it is really difficult for them to admit that there is a problem going on in their marriages, let alone seek out a men's counselor or a couples therapist to get help. Many don’t think there’s a problem to fix, or that it can be fixed within the relationship without professional help.
Often times, these caring wives and girlfriends know there is an immediate problem, but can't convince their partner to seek counseling for themselves, or entertain the thought of couples or marriage therapy.
This can be frustrating for women who fear that without counseling, the marriage or relationship will ultimately worsen or end.
Your husband doesn't want therapy, so why don't you come in?
I understand how men work in marriage and relationships, and I want to empower you to get the relationship that you want. Together, we can help you work on how to get your own needs met and decide what you want from your relationship with your partner. While we can’t change your partner, we can work towards helping you develop more trust, intimacy and connection with your partner. We can also work on helping you feel better about yourself and your life.

While we will do what we can to help improve your relationship, sometimes, a relationship or marriage doesn’t work out, no matter how much energy and willingness you have to put in. This can be disappointing and painful, but therapy can help with these feelings, and also help you get on with your life. Moreover, therapy helps you resolve other problems in your life, such as those listed below.
