Men were never meant to face the challenges of our lives as “lone wolves.” Northern Illinois Men’s Counseling offers men a chance to return to the wisdom of the past which proved that when men connect and honestly support each other they do far better.
In a group men may work with concerns like:
Fatherhood and step-fatherings
Anger and Frustration
Groups have helped countless men improve their lives and relationships by helping them to address the issues that are holding them back.
"John brings a unique service to our community."
"He offers a practical and empathic understanding of the male perspective, not only in society in general, but also in the workings of a man's relationships. We are lucky to have him as a resource."
- R.H.M, LPC
Whether he asks for it or not, there are times for every man when he needs a coach, a mentor, or just clear and honest feedback.
Northern Illinois Men's Counseling helps with:
Anger, Frustration and Avoidance
Affairs and Infidelity
Isolation and Retreat
One of the obstacles that may keep you from asking for help is the mistaken notion that to be a “real man” you must be able to handle your problems on your own.
None of us were ever intended to face our issues or challenges alone. To seek counsel and support is a sure sign of wisdom, courage and strength.

Couple relationships can be hard. The person who once felt like your best friend and lover, now seems more like a stranger, a roommate, or even an adversary.

Cycles of Conflict
Recovery from Affairs or Infidelity
Lack of Intimacy
With help, you can strengthen your relationship and find trust and security with your partner again.
