Men Helping Men

An open-ended men's group devoted to the exploration and thoughtful discussion inspired by today’s leaders in relational wellness.

Who it’s for:

This group is for men interested in gaining support and like-mindedness from those in similar circumstances. Does your partner complain that you are not communicative enough? Have you ever struggled with articulating emotions, depression, or feeling overall “numb”? Come join with fellow men going through similar life stages and relationship challenges.

Men Helping Men is an open-ended group that includes exploration and thoughtful discussion inspired by leaders in relational wellness. Each meeting explores different facets of what makes relationships successful (and what makes them not) and how these concepts apply to our world, voice, and hearts. MHM will also discuss essential topics like:

  • Vulnerability
  • Intention
  • Curiosity
  • Varied forms of empathy
  • Understanding versus problem solving
  • Independence versus togetherness (and other core differences)
  • Uncertainty
  • Shame
  • Differentiation
  • Accepting influence
  • Mindfulness

Drawing from evidence-informed theories from couples therapists and theorists such as Terry Real, Stan Tatkin, Brene Brown, Esther Perel, David Schnarch, and others.

What you’ll take away

You’re not alone.
There are many traits modern men have in common, especially those committed to bettering themselves and their partnerships. This is not easy work, but it is worthwhile and will expand your skill set for your home, friendship, and working life immeasurably.


Group cohesion is unlike anything you might have experienced before. The comfort and safety of a support group are life-giving, connective, growth-minded, and generative. 90 minutes a week for eight weeks might seem like a serious time crunch, but ultimately, you’ll find the time spent with the group will breeze by, and you won’t ever view group therapy in the same way.
