THE MEN BEHIND
THE SPACE

The Manspace started because Dr. Matt and Dr. Rob wanted to hang out more. As we talked about what we wanted for ourselves professionally and personally, and what we wanted for our relationships, Matt brought up his desire for other men to have the same opportunity. With Mike following shortly thereafter, we started The Manspace so men could have these conversations, even if they are only listening in.

We are committed to helping men become who they want to be by developing themselves and their relationships.

 

Through decades of collective experience we’ve come to understand that most men want to improve themselves, even if they’re not ready for therapy. Most men are often actively working to make their relationship better, even when that work isn’t recognized or very effective. 

 

After thousands of hours studying and working with men and their relationships, we’ve created and compiled resources to make your efforts more effective and help you become the man you want to be.

DR. MATT BROWN, LMFT

Co-Founder, Therapist

Matt is a laid back, normal dude with lots of experience helping guys and couples work through the things that keep them stuck. He knows how to make therapy feel like a normal conversation, even when it's about all the crap you don't want anyone to know. He's constantly trying new things, failing, getting pissed, and finally getting it right. He can help you with your own process of looking like a moron on your way to being a better dude.

DR. Rob POrter,
LMFT

Co-Founder, Therapist

Rob’s worked with a lot of men and couples helping them fix a variety of problems. Which is good, cause he sure as crap can’t fix an engine…or the sink…or washing machine. To his credit, he did once fix his sprinkler system—that he dug into by accident. Work with him and you can ask him all about it. His wife was at least moderately impressed.
