I’m a Registered Psychotherapist (RP) and Certified Sex Addiction Therapist (CSAT), and the founder of Men Therapy Toronto, the first counseling center in Canada focused exclusively on the health and well-being of men. I am also a trained EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) therapist which is an evidence-based modality used in treating trauma. At Men Therapy Toronto we see men who come in for a wide range of concerns. We specialize in men working through concerns with porn and sex addiction, childhood sexual abuse, anger management, career concerns and childhood trauma.

Psychotherapy is a collaboration between patient and psychologist in which a safe psychological environment is created for the patient to be able to develop greater insight into themself. In particular, men can be quite frightened of this process due to how men are socialized to avoid personal reflection or reveal emotional pain. Psychotherapy often provides an opportunity for men to free themselves from the pressure to follow male role stereotypes.

I am a registered Psychotherapist with a special interest in helping men who can get ‘stuck’ and struggle with transitions in life such as retirement from sport, losing a job, divorce, re-locating or simply helping you to figure out a purpose for what comes next. My approach is simple; non-judgmental, open and empathetic to client experiences. I take a broad perspective to understanding my client experiences and integrate historical information to formulating a plan to help clients resolve problems now. Depression, anxiety disorders, loneliness, anger and substance abuse are key areas that I specialize in.

Free consultation. Sessions on Zoom, 9 am to 9 pm ET. Covered by many insurance plans.
Typical clients: guys aged 20 to 45 in sports, business, trades, professions, and students.
It’s okay if you don’t know what to expect. From “What’s going on?” to “Where do we go from here?” our conversations will be a partnership. If you feel anxious or stressed, get angry, have challenges with work or relationships (from communication to sex), most people don’t want a specific type of therapy, just one that works. I’ll explain options, how they work, and we’ll take it from there.

The psychotherapeutic approach that I take to care is intuitively developed for each individual patient. Because I have experienced that past difficulties and traumas often unconsciously drive our present ways of thinking and relating to the world, I draw on psychodynamic theory to raise awareness, elevate consciousness and make peace with the past. I also draw on Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), which is grounded in behavioural sciences and eastern psychological theory, to increase psychological flexibility and relatedness with present thoughts, feelings, beliefs and perceptions. This specifically involves leveraging eastern meditative traditions to develop faculties that facilitate change.

My name is Michael Greene. I have been a therapist in private practice for 30 years. During this time I have worked with men on the many issues they face.
Most of these men have problems with understanding their feelings. This has negative repercussions for their relationships, work and their own sense of self. It can lead to divorce, addiction and depression.
My work involves helping men to get in touch with their feelings so that they can cope with these areas of life.
