WARNING: Bold StateMENts ahead: The following is an updated mission statement of the meet up groups for which I will be facilitating as a branch of my private practice. THERE IS NO FEE FOR THE FIRST MEETINGs. During that meeting (and there will be at least two dates as options for all those interested to attend) we will discuss in better detail the process, the fee and the guarantees. Yes, you read it accurately, there are real, pragmatic almost tangible guarantees here.

There will be TWO separate meetings which will be set as a barometer for the two meetings scheduled each week facilitated by me and hold 7 men each. While we are all one meetup, there will be two different meetings.

-

So - These groups (2nd Group will be Friday Oct 25 7p-9p) will be the, , these are the basis for me creating the Meetup. Two groups per week as options (each man will only need to choose which one of the groups he will commit to). If we have an overflow, I'll add another group for another night.

I realize we have over 20 men with interest (and that's just here on meetup), and we have more showing interest (from the general public and guys I may have worked with privately or from previous groups).

IF needed, I'll ad as many groups as possible to keep each group at 7 men WHO CAN COMMIT TO ONE YEAR of meeting once per week.

Social meetups will be terminated from within each group (if they even want to) and at some point during the year (probably at the end of 2020), I'd like to host one huge gathering for all the groups to meet for both a process AND social group.

That's it. Well, except for the fee. that is something I will need to think on a bit more. Again, these introduction information groups are at no charge, but the deep and life lasting process I will be facilitating will be offered at a fee that will be manageable. Additionally, there will be scholarships available for those who have expressed and demonstrated a hardship to be able to attend.

Either way, thank you all for your expressed interest and I am available as needed with questions prior to and after we meet in person! Take care of your Self! - Tim - My office number is (424) 239-8495

What is Group Therapy?

Psychotherapy is for people who want to improve their lives. While individual therapy involves one person meeting with a therapist, group therapy involves a small group of unrelated people meeting together with a professionally trained facilitator who leads, or facilitates, a therapeutic meeting.


We learn from other people all the time. While the initial anxiety people feel about joining a group is universal, many soon find it easier to express their feelings in a supportive group of peers once they have begun. Group participants develop trusting working relationships with each other over time.


Usually in a support group, the focus is a one particular topic or problem that all the members share. Participants share their honest feelings and thoughts about events occurring in their lives outside the group. Participants respond to each other with direct, honest, and respectful information, suggestions, encouragement, and feedback.

           Toxic Masculinity

By far the worst thing we do to males                                              making ​them feel they have to be hard 






is that we leave them                                                                                            with such fragile egos."
