Men's Issues

Dr. Jeff SharpMany men enjoy privileges in today's world, yet we also face daunting challenges that are unique to our era. We are expected to be more emotionally and psychologically adept than ever before, but few of us have benefitted from helpful roadmaps or role models.

I am dedicated to providing psychotherapy for men with a wide range of issues in areas such as relationships, careers, addictions, and overall difficulty sustaining a meaningful life. For 25 years, I have been deeply involved in helping men live more creative, engaged and compassionate lives at work, with their families, and with friends. I have been active in men's retreats and groups, and have continually studied the literature on male psychological development. I also offer consultation and training on conducting psychotherapy with men, and have taught numerous courses on this topic to psychotherapists throughout the Bay Area.

If you are struggling with some aspect of life and seek assistance from a seasoned, compassionate, gently challenging male therapist, feel free to contact me.

"The person who, being truly on the Way, falls upon hard times in the world, will not, as a consequence, turn to that friend who offers him refuge and comfort and encourages his old self to survive. Rather, he will seek out someone who will faithfully and inexorably help him to risk himself, so that he may endure the suffering and pass courageously through it, thus making of it a 'raft that leads to the far shore.' Only to the extent that a person exposes himself willingly over and over again to annihilation, can that which is indestructible arise within him. In this lies the dignity of daring."
