Everyone has a story…

and the chapters in it are determined by the choices we make. With the right tools, support, and encouragement–we can make your later (un-written) chapters into a bestseller! Guys, don’t let anxiety, depression, or other of life’s challenges prevent you from living out your best “You”. Whatever stage of life you are in (teens – senior adults), we should be constantly growing and developing. But there are seasons when men need other men to confide in, process through things, bounce ideas off of, or just get some counseling–coaching to get them through some of those tough times. Contrary to what society says, we were never meant to do life alone. Now is the time to take responsibility for our mental health and well-being, and become the men we were meant to be.

The Man-Up Counseling & Mentoring Centers, LLC are Counselors, Life Coaches and Mentors challenging men, in all their seasons of life, to face their hurts and fears rather than run from them. Obstacles are just a part of life…they can either make us or break us. It’s how we see and handle them that makes all the difference. There’s no shame in getting a little help along the way. “As Iron Sharpens Iron so does one Man Sharpen Another.”

Sometimes, just getting the right help, from the right person, at the right time, can change everything. Time to invest in and take control of our lives… and “Make things happen”. Time for all of us to Man-Up!”

It’s what we do.



The break-up of the family (fatherlessness) is the single most contributing factor in the healthy (socio-emotional) development of young men today. Statistics on fatherlessness are alarming. According to Fathersunite.org:

  • 63% of youth suicides are from fatherless homes.

  • 90% of all homeless and runaway children are from fatherless homes.

  • 85% of all children that exhibit behavioral disorders come from fatherless homes.

  • 80% of rapists motivated by displaced anger come from fatherless homes.

  • 71% of all high school dropouts come from fatherless homes.

  • 85% of all youths sitting in prisons grew up in a fatherless home.

These statistics mean that children from fatherless homes are:

  • 5x more likely to commit suicide

  • 32x more likely to run away

  • 20x more likely to have behavioral disorders

  • 14x more likely to commit rape

  • 9x more likely to drop out of high school

  • 20x more likely to end up in prison

Common sense would dictate that programs to counter these stats are greatly needed. The Man-Up Counseling and Mentoring Centers is such a program that uses a holistic approach to male/student development. Young men are in need of positive, seasoned, male role models as guides to navigate through the crucial developmental stages in their transitioning from boys to men. As iron sharpens Iron, so does one man sharpen another. Men need other men to become courageous men.
