Clinical Group

Men's Group

Looking for a Few Good Men

   Maybe you’ve been working with the wife and the man needs therapy too.
   Maybe you’ve been seeing the couple but the man isn’t as receptive as the wife.
   Maybe he doesn’t believe in therapy but a group of guys sounds better.

   Mens group improves relationships and supports marital work. Men in group listen better, think more, and                  become more relational. The intimacy of group seeps into other relationships.

   After 30 years of leading groups in Houston, I’m starting a new mens group in Austin. Since I am now semi-                  retired without a full practice, I’m looking for one or two additional members. If I can be helpful to you, please            let me know.
