Internal Family Systems (IFS)
My approach to therapy involves using “Internal Family Systems” or more simply out, we are going to work together looking at your “parts”, the sub-personalities that make us who we are. It turns out that as guys we are really good at hiding and packaging away the hurt or wounded parts while encouraging the use of “managing” parts that often keep us from feeling more vulnerable areas of life. As modern men, we need to work on being able to look at these parts along with our “manly” parts. The goal will be to create a relationship with your parts to your “core self” or the part of you that is calm, compassionate, and centered. When we can live in this fashion we can get the most of our relationships, deal with emotions easier, and are more in line with the man we are meant to be. If this sounds good to you, feel free use the consult button below and let’s chat!
I help people work with the relationship to their core self, the central part that helps us to be balanced in the world. We are often so focused on the external world that we miss what is going on within. We all have the ability to heal, no matter how rough life has been.
I currently offer a hybrid model of therapy that includes limited in-person visits that we can meet and connect in-person, as well as virtual visits that may be more convenient due to your location or time demands. We can discuss what will be the option for you.

I run an on-going open group for guys wishing to work together on issues related to the “Nice Guy Syndrome” as well as topics regarding masculine/feminne energy, breath work, and emotional intelligence. Groups meet twice a year for 3 months, usually in the Spring and Fall. Groups meet from 7:30-9p every-other Monday and are limited to 15 guys for the 3-month duration. Complete a consult form if you would like to learn more.
Cost of this group is $50/group session.

We have been fortunate to host two retreats now and see how important these experiences have been for men to get away, connect with the land, and work on themselves with a supportive group of men.
On these retreats, we combine nature, movement, and men’s group work to help each man slow down, find new solutions, lighten his load, and leave with a greater aspect who he is and to feel more empowered and peace moving forward in his life. Check out some of the highlights below and feel free to fill out a consult form if you’d like to learn more.
