I'M DR. AUDRA HORNEY
I am a licensed psychologist specialized in men's mental health. I work primarily with adult men who are seeking therapy for the first time. I understand therapy is not always a welcoming or comfortable space for men, and it's my mission to normalize and destigmatize that experience.
I'm not in the business of putting bandaids on bullet holes. You've likely put this off for a long time, and I want to make sure the investment into your self has a good return. Together we will identify the root of your struggles to find long-term solutions, not quick fixes. My goal is to help you rebuild strategies for managing stress and living a fulfilling life beyond therapy.
Going to therapy doesn't mean that you've "failed."
Asking for help isn't a sign of weakness.
Therapy - just like a personal trainer, business coach, or financial planner - is a resource for personal growth.

What is modern therapy?
Modern therapy is personalized for you and uses treatment interventions and strategies that are supported by research and fit your unique circumstances. I stay up-to-date on the latest research, theories, and practices in mental health to guarantee the therapy I provide is current and backed by science.
As a modern therapist I am authentic, direct, and collaborative. I respect the diverse backgrounds and identities of my clients. I recognize the impact of culture, race, ethnicity, gender, sexuality, and other factors on a person's mental health and tailor my approach accordingly.
Is therapy right for me?
Only you know this for sure.
The clients I witness make the most progress in therapy are ready for change. They are open to exploring their thoughts, emotions, and behaviors. They know that what you put into something directly correlates to what you get out.
If you're chronically stressed, disconnected and unfulfilled in your relationships, and not feeling your best, you deserve all the support you can get.
