The boys and young adults we work with have many strengths, great qualities, and tremendous potential and the vast majority of them have not benefited from traditional “talk therapy”/counseling.
Traditional talk therapy/counseling is often counter-intuitive to how the male brain works. Treatment often looks like attempting to find ways to get the individual to verbalize his innermost thoughts and feelings. In reality, most boys and young men don’t operate this way thus therapy is often not a productive use of time or financial resources.
Families choose Ride the Wave Counseling because our approach is about teaching practical strategies and skills in a structured but informal environment. Parents are always involved in learning with their children.
We understand from a male perspective how to make therapy a positive and productive experience for boys and young men who may have any aversion to participating in therapy based on their past experiences.
Please contact us to discuss next steps, we look forward to meeting your family.
