There is nothing more exciting to me than the intersection of
transformation and adventure. This is why I founded Restoration
Counseling – a place where we daily engage the power of restoration
and epic re-storying. As a Licensed Professional Counselor, I
specialize in men and masculinity, sexual addiction, trauma and
abuse. My experience as a men’s therapist and my work with men at
Restoration Project provide me a wealth of experience when
navigating the landscape of a man’s heart.

when there is a society full of sages, there is groundedness, there
is containment, there is wisdom, there is guidance, there is an
unflappability to who he is. There is a generous hospitality that
he exudes around him. There is a subtle-ness to a sage. And when
sages don't exist in society, that's where we get all the opposites

"There's so few sages that probably one of the best things that you
could do is to be around other men who are pursuing sage. Because
there's something there about the camaraderie of men that when we
are pursuing sage together, even if we don't know what it is and
what it looks like, if we have intention to go there, we're going
to find our way."
