Find Masculinity Therapists & Counselors in River Grove, IL.

 

Are you having a tough time navigating life as a man? We guarantee that you’re not the only one - many men struggle with social ideas of masculinity. Your preconceived notions about male gender roles and social norms can drive you to think and act in ways that don’t serve you. They can lead to uncomfortable interactions, destructive behaviour, and even mental issues - also known as toxic masculinity.

A licensed therapist who specializes in working with men and masculinity can help you explore yourself so you can express your masculinity in a healthy, authentic way. Whether you are located in downtown River Grove, the suburbs of River Grove, other nearby places such as Franklin Park, Melrose Park, or anywhere else in Illinois, Mental Health Match can help you easily find an experienced therapist or counselor who best meets your needs.

Signs You Should Consider Toxic Masculinity Therapy

Here are some signs that you should consider therapy for toxic masculinity:

  • You act in ways you think society wants, rather than what feels authentic.
  • You are aggressive and stoic, even when you don’t want to be.
  • You ignore or repress your emotions in ways that feel harmful.
  • You have difficult relationships or feel like you can’t get along with partners of another gender.
  • You simply want to explore your masculine side.

If any of the above describes you, we recommend seeking out a therapist trained to work with men and masculinity. The concept of toxic masculinity may be difficult to understand. To learn more about it, read licensed therapist Miranda Campbell’s article on getting help for toxic masculinity.
