I do the sacred work of couples and individual counseling on weekdays via video, typically in the afternoons, some evenings. My clients find this a convenient, safe, and efficient way to do the deep work of counseling.

Virtual Groups and Couples Intensive Program
I just launched a new organization, Great Oaks Collective, and Overcome, a virtual IOP for Christian couples experiencing sexual betrayal and addiction. Currently, my team is offering Overcome, a 10 week program of intensive support and care for couples in crisis. Learn more at www.greatoakscollective.com.
The groups are to be found here: www.theflourishinway.co. These include a men's recovery group, and a women's betrayed partner group.
Every Wednesday, I send an email newsletter called Words of Wisdom where I condense 20 years of learning into a few minutes of reading for you. Each week I choose a topic and share my thoughts, quotes, and powerful questions to share what I know and help you grow. I'm nearly two years into my goal of making this a 30-year writing project.
I am thrilled to say I'm in the beginning stages of the long process of co-writing a book.
I have turned my weekly Words of Wisdom into a podcast. Listen here.
I am currently working on creating another podcast, more to come when we launch.
Building from my experience from when I co-founded and served as the Chief Product Officer at rTribe, when there are unique projects that come my way, I sometimes do consulting work.
In the past I have done the following:
helping launch a nonprofit counseling center
helping therapists grow their private practice
helping launch a healthcare nonprofit
helping entrepreneurs build their business
helping an IOP treatment center improve various business processes
helping a large counseling center scale their reach, and systematize and streamline their practices
helping CEOs manage their business partnerships
I find I read best when working on multiple books at once. Maybe it's my curiosity; perhaps it's the ADHD. As I look over my physical and digital books, I'm currently reading: the book of Matthew, Matthew: A Commentary: The Churchbook (Matthew 13-28), 24 Hours a Day, Strengthening the Soul of your Leadership.
Currently re-reading: Alcoholics Anonymous, Renovation of the Heart, Anything you Want
Recently re-read: The Gifts of Imperfection, How We Love, The Cost of Discipleship, Galatians, The Epistle of James, The Communication Skills Book, The Art of the Question, Reaching Out.
Recently read: Discipline is Destiny, Personal Socrates, Put Your Ass Where Your Heart Wants to Be, The Bed of Procrustes, Deceived, The Ruthless Elimination of Hurry, Skin in the Game, The Wedge, Unwanted.
Currently, most of my movement practice takes place in my garage gym. Kettlebells, gymnastic rings, pull-up bars, sandbags, clubs, maces, and slam balls get the most attention.
I also get out multiple times a week to hike or trail run. Nothing brings my body and soul alive like some time in wild places.
Our modern society has experienced a collapse of community, and as we all know, the pandemic only made this worse. My wife and I are committed to doing life in a small intentional community of people. Part of that means being committed to a local spiritual community of faith, just like most humans have been for thousands of years in one form or another.
My wife and I love our life in Sparks, Nevada, a stone's throw from my favorite place on earth, the Sierras.
My life is so rich and full of meaning with my family. My wife Ally and two young boys bring me my most profound joy.
