“Man up!”, “Boys Don’t Cry”, “You Run Like a Girl!”
I can’t tell you how many times I heard these phrases growing up – they weren’t directed at me, of course, but they were directed at my brother, and his friends, and most of the boys with whom I hung out.
But, that was the ’80’s. These days, there’s an entire campaign aimed at discouraging these types of phrases (one University even banned them). And, it’s worth noting the reasons why: By telling boys to “man up” or…Continue

So, when Jennie’s youngest daughter became a…Continue

When I have couples come to me for their initial session, we nearly always spend a lot of time on the current problems in the relationship. Both parties are typically relieved to find someone who will listen to the day-to-day problems they face in the marriage. So, it’s always interesting to watch their reaction when I tell them their problems won’t be the primary focus of therapy. WHAT?! Yep, it’s true. What really DOES matter, I tell them, are the “issues” behind the “problems.” And,…Continue
