Couples therapist Jason Fierstein introduces himself and recalls some important tidbits of information that women should know about men.
Well hi, my name is Jason Fierstein and I’m a counselor for men and couples. I work in private practice here in Phoenix and I help guys who are struggling in the relationships and help the women who are in relationships with them understand their guys a little bit better. So that’s the gist what I do. I work individually with men, in groups, and I do couples and marriage counseling.
The most critical things that women could know and benefit from knowing about being in a relationship with a guy is that men love their wives and girlfriends very much and sometimes men have very difficult time communicating that and there’s a lot of emotional disconnect for men, and I think that overall is a huge problem in relationships and in marriages is that men have a very hard time connecting to their emotions. Now they may want to try to fix things in their minds and fix problems, but a lot of times the emotional intelligence of men is really an issue and I think that’s an underlying thematic in marital problems.
