In my Denver men’s therapy practice, fathers seeking counseling often experience a range of emotions.
Many times, they fall into these categories:
- Strained father-son relationship
- Difficult father-daughter relationship
- Spousal or partner communication issues
- Parental alienation
- Struggles with fatherhood
- Troubles with parenthood transition
The good news is, all of these are “fixable” and it starts with taking the first step, searching for online counseling for dads, therapy for fathers, support for parents, etc.
So, here you are. I’m so glad you’re here.
Denver Men’s Therapy for Fathers at BrassBalls TenderHeart
Dad, let’s figure this out. Sitting down with a therapist means you’re serious about a relationship with your kid or kids. And, you want a good relationship. One that makes each of you feel good. One with secret jokes and handshakes. Conflicted parenting, anger issues, addiction, and instability can bring out the worst in us. Therapy is a place to organize your life and find a way to deal with your demons while highlighting the best parts of yourself.
Man to man, we can get you to a good place. A place where you’re able to collect yourself when you want to say x, y, or z. And where you can build the tools to consistently bring your best self to the table when you’re parenting.
Father-Son Relationship Help
As a father of twin boys, I am uniquely skilled in facilitating the type of relationship that you desire with your son. As fathers, to boys, we want to instill a tough backbone with a tender heart. Many dads don’t know good ways to do this and instead resort to yelling, scolding, or alienating their sons (whether purposely or not). Dads often disregard their son’s emotions as well, wanting them to “toughen up.”
What if I told you there was a way to find a balance? As a father, you can nurture your son’s emotions, while positively directing them to be strong, bold and independent. (You might even learn how to do this yourself!). Game changer. Let’s do this.
Father-Daughter Connection Support
Oh man, the age old father daughter relationship issues. It’s often hard enough for heterosexual couples to understand each other with the gender divide, but for father and daughter, it can be even more sensitive. Dads don’t want to “say the wrong thing” and they often have to get a bit of an anatomy lesson when they become fathers to daughters. Simply put… they are not as familiar with what it’s like to grow up as a little girl than as a little boy! Lots of education is required here….
So, when daughters grow up a bit and dad feels alienated, how can we fix this? One answer. Therapy for dads. When it comes to daughters, fathers need to learn how to listen very well. They tend to tap into their masculine protective mode with daughters, but this overbearing-ness can push a daughter into being secretive and not wanting to tell her overprotective dad what’s going on. Counseling for dads can help open up insight into how to protect, yet be gentle and open.
