Most guys are skeptical that “just talking” with a psychologist will help.

But unresolved depression can wreck lives and ruin marriages.

I use effective therapy strategies that help men to open up and tackle depression head on so that they can feel better and have happier relationships.

Hi, I’m Jared.

I’m a clinical psychologist specializing in therapy and counseling in Atlanta/Brookhaven for men who struggle with chronic depression, relentless self-criticism, and difficult interpersonal relationship problems.

I work with guys who are sharply intelligent, intense, driven, and deep critical thinkers…

…but unfortunately that same intensity that serves us well in some settings can also have a nasty way of wreaking havoc on our lives, our relationships, our work, and our happiness.

As men, we aren’t used to getting much guidance for grappling with challenging emotions, messy relationships, insecurity, isolation, and perfectionism.

Left alone in our own heads, we can hurt ourselves and our loved ones with emotional withdrawal, irritability, and even self-sabotaging behavior.

My therapy clients have struggled, sometimes for years, to find knowledgeable, understanding, and experienced counseling for their depression and relationship problems. You may have been diagnosed (or even misdiagnosed) with things like chronic depression or anxiety, Bipolar II Disorder, Adult ADD/ADHD, Borderline Personality Disorder or Narcissistic Personality Disorder.

Therapy challenges us to get back to the man we want to be for our partners, our children, and ourselves. But for those courageous enough to face the challenge, lasting rewards await…

A 21st century man must value what he’s building at home as much as or more than what he builds at work.
