LIVE LIFE ON YOUR OWN TERMS….
I work with men to help them start living the life they truly WANT. I believe that for that to happen you need 3 things: To discover your sense of self, find your purpose, and build a tribe. It’s the HOLY TRINITY. You need all three…I want to help you get there, if you’re willing…
HELPING YOU BEAT THE ODDS
I had built a successful career in the world of psychology—working as a professor and a therapist. I thought I was really going somewhere. But the reality was that I was living with a pain, disappointment, and an undealt with shadow in my life. It looked good on the outside, but scratch just below the surface, and you’d find that I felt hollow.
Many guys who talk to me are nearing mid-life, they’re experienced, well educated, have decent paying jobs, have built something they’re proud of…but they’re staring at it all and saying: THIS IS A MESS…or THIS DOESN”T MAKE SENSE ANY MORE…or I’M SCARED I’M GOING TO BLOW IT ALL UP….
That was my wake up call—sadly. I blew up my career, lost a hell of a lot of friends, and stirred up the hornets nest. I plunged into the dark night of the soul, and it felt like there was no coming back from it. Which is when my wife said to me words I’ll never forget: “You need to step up and BE THE MAN!” Ouch. But that’s it. I knew what she meant. I had forgotten who I was, what I was about, and where my tribe was. I had lost my sense of courage, strength, mastery and honor. I needed to recover that.
In that journey of healing I discovered that men everywhere are blowing up and burning out, or dying from boredom. And maybe that’s exactly how you feel. You want more out of life than what you’ve experienced so far. You can envision your best life, but it’s distant and remote. Believe me—in my nearly two decades of being an educator, spiritual director, or psychotherapist I’ve seen it all. In my current work as Certified Vocational Specialist, and a Certified CBT Life Coach, I mentor men who want to be more than a statistic—to beat the odds and to be the turn-around artists that becomes the hero in their own story.
