Therapy for Optimal Cognitive Health

Patients receive strategic, focused, science-based psychotherapy treatment which balances support and challenge. The Center for Men's Excellence applies research supported therapeutic approaches that provide patients with the tools they need to set clear goals and manage their own lives more successfully in an ongoing way rather than attending weekly therapy sessions year after year.

“Dr. Singley’s straight-forward approach helped me to learn skills to manage my stress and develop better ways to connect with my friends and family. I now have the tools I need to live the life I always wanted.”
