My Approach to Helping

With a history of working with men from all walks of life, including athletes, first responders, and students, it is clear to me that many of us are taught to separate our hearts and our heads in order to navigate our lived experience. We learn that emotions are not to be trusted, indeed that they are to be suspended if we are to make intelligent decisions. Along with this mistrust of emotion, I often encounter the harmful effects of fatherlessness or abusiveneglectful father figures, which damages our understanding of masculinity and how that masculinity expresses itself in daily life.

It has been a pleasure for me to journey with men as they learn to re-integrate their hearts and their heads, to help them understand what they feel and why, to assist in addressing issues related to anger, trauma, relationship, identity development, and vocation. As men, we rarely interact at such a depth with each other but great good can come when we do.

It seems a rare thing in our culture that a man would admit he needs help navigating the twists and turns of life's journey. I believe that we must build an understanding and acceptance of life as it is now if we wish to see real progress in that journey. I encourage you to reach out should you desire to make meaningful progress toward a better future.
