Counseling

I see couples and individual clients 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 Intensive Outpatient 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.

Writing


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.

 

My goal is to make this a 30-year writing project.

Consulting


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. I am not currently consulting with any organizations.
 

Reading


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 Institutes of Christian Religion, 24 Hours a Day,Twelve Steps and Twelve Traditions, Ethics: The Study of Moral Values, The Laws of Creativity, Unwanted, Matthew: A Commentary: The Churchbook (Matthew 13-28), A World Without Email, The Bed of Procrustes, Deceived.

I'm re-reading: The Gifts of Imperfection, How We Love.

Recently read: The Cost of Discipleship, Galatians, The Ruthless Elimination of Hurry, Skin in the Game, The Wedge, The Epistle of James, Unwanted, The Communication Skills Book.

Movement Practice


Currently, most of my movement practice takes place in my garage gym. Kettlebells, gymnastic rings, pull-up bars, sandbags, and slam balls get the most attention.

I also get out about weekly to hike or trail run. Nothing brings my body and soul alive like some time in wild places.

Deepening Presence


I do a daily sitting meditation and prayer. I also regularly do rope flow as an active mindfulness practice.

Intentional Community


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.

Love


My life is so rich and full of meaning with my family. My wife Ally and two-year-old son Zion bring me my most profound joy.
