FOCUSED ON MEN, WE OFFER SPECIALIZED COUNSELING
In a world where the concept of masculinity faces significant change and evolution, Bear Creek Recovery is here to empower the modern man to embrace life fully. We firmly believe that good therapy can not only make men stronger but also better friends, brothers, fathers, husbands, and leaders.
We recognize that the modern world presents an array of formidable challenges that can displace men from their roles, causing them to grapple with overwhelming pressures, uncertain demands, and unrealistic expectations. These challenges frequently give rise to heightened levels of anxiety, depression, and a profound sense of inadequacy.
OUR MISSION IS CLEAR
We empower men and strengthen the bonds they have. We specialize in teenage males aged 13-17 & men aged 18+

We empower modern men to embrace their roles in life and relationships by equipping them with essential skills and strategies.
We guide our clients in developing effective coping mechanisms and recovery techniques. Through our work, we help the men we work with explore various aspects of their behavior and overall personality. This process fosters a deep appreciation for all facets of themselves while enabling the management of triggers and pain through healthier thought patterns and behaviors.
Our team of counselors is highly trained in a wide range of clinical and trauma interventions, ensuring lasting success on the path to healing. We understand that overcoming challenges may involve grappling with shame and pain, and we support our clients through a journey of complete self-acceptance while gaining the skills of resiliency needed.
By emphasizing the positive aspects of our client's personalities, without rejecting any part of themselves, we pave the way for self-acceptance, freedom, sobriety and profound healing. We acknowledge that achieving true freedom takes time and effort, but the rewards are immeasurable and well worth the journey.
Specializing in men’s mental health, we understand the unique challenges that men may face while considering counseling as an option. We respect the courage it takes to pick up the phone and schedule.
"Justin is very knowledgeable and helped me to truly understand the issues I came in to see him about. The treatment was very healing for me as I came to better understand myself and who I want to be. He tells it to you straight and helped me come to reality in terms of the things I’ve been dealing with. I really appreciated that he gave me useful things to do in between sessions and suggested learning tools I can continue to use beyond treatment. Highly recommend."
"Been working with Justin since the beginning of this year. I’m so glad I started going to therapy, and their program and knowledge of self discovery has helped me SO much. I’ve grown so much with Justin, he’s a huge help and a strong voice of compassion. He’s not afraid to challenge you to help you grow, i’m so glad he does!"
"Justin has changed my life for the better, he has helped me learn more about myself and helped me collect more pieces to my identity and purpose than any other person or counselor I have ever met."
