LIFT Therapy Group for Men
LIFT – Men Lifting Each Other Through Change
“The heart of man is very much like the sea; it has its storms, it has its tides, and in its depths, it has its pearls too.”
― Vincent Van Gogh
LIFT is a 12- week therapy group for men. Struggling with stressors, painful emotions, and distressing thoughts can be an isolating and lonely experience. Often people feel as though no one can understand their pain or that speaking about their problems would make them a burden to others.
Men in particular often receive both implicit and explicit messages through family, friends, media and social norms that discussing emotions and difficult thoughts is not “manly” or “masculine.” Fortunately, growing acceptance and value of mental health has started to reduce these stigmas, and yet, it can still be difficult to find spaces where authentic connection and discussion can thrive. Especially after the strain the pandemic has placed on people’s personal and professional lives, having a place to connect and communicate is vitally important.
Group therapy provides the opportunity to connect with others who are having similar life difficulties, create a sense of community centered around support and growth, and learn about oneself while receiving motivational feedback from others. It is important to know that you are not alone and takes a great deal of courage to ask for help. The benefits of reaching out can help set you up for the successful life you want to live.
Join Dr. Vince Panvini on a 12-week journey designed uniquely for men as we engage in meaningful conversations and build skills to help men face life’s challenges with calmness, care, and compassion. Using insights from neuroscience, the group will promote connection and enhance empowered self-leadership, successful boundary setting, emotional awareness, and creative problem solving.
Each week group members will focus on a different topic pertinent to men to allow the group to come together and provide a safe space for real conversations. Group members will also learn coping skills for better emotion regulation and given the opportunity to brainstorm real life application of the skills learned in group.
This group will be held through Zoom teleconferencing once a week in the evening (exact date and time to be determined). To ensure excellence in care, space is limited.
Dr. Truitt and her team are ready to help you discover a deeper connection with yourself and others, and empower you to live your most fulfilled and sustainable life. Contact Dr. Kate Truitt and her team today for a complimentary 30-minute phone consultation.
