Are you a “Nice Guy”? 

Are you tired of losing that promotion you have worked so hard for, having challenges with having satisfying and meaningful sex and intimacy and working too much? How about struggling with not having a hobby, getting with the guys, dealing with conflict and looking and feeling healthy? Chances are you may be a nice guy.  So, what is a nice guy and why is that so bad, anyways? 

A nice guy can be described by one or more of the following characteristics:

  • Giving often
  • Seeking approval from others
  • Believing that you must hide your perceived flaws and mistakes
  • Trying to be different from your father
  • Fixing and care taking
  • Avoiding conflict
  • Repressing your feelings
  • Being more comfortable relating to women than men
  • Having difficulty making your needs a priority
  • Making your partner your emotional center

If you struggle with some or more of these, or if your partner or significant other has complained about these characteristics in you, you may be a nice guy! You may benefit from our group and/or individual counseling, please contact us below.

How we can help you be more assertive in an individual or group setting

We can help men 18 and older individually or in a group setting with the skills to become more assertive, authentic and healthy. We will focus on your current goals individually or in a small, fun and interactive group.  The group uses the popular book, “No More Mr. Nice Guy”, but will combine how you got here, how to apply assertiveness skills, and will add role-playing on real life situations to best learn this skills. These groups will be 6-7 men that can relate to being a “nice guy” and that have the desire to stop living that life; yesterday.  You don’t have to do this alone!
