Welcome to Empowered Man, a supportive community of men dedicated to personal growth, mutual support, and authentic connection.
What does it mean to be a Man today? In the past, being a provider was our measure of acceptance and success. Today, we need to meet our mental/emotional needs within ourselves, our partner(s), and the world at large. How does one do that effectively when operating from old programming? Many of us fail to meet this emotional need, resulting in low confidence, shame-filled moments, and a feeling of no purpose. Being a man feels isolating and lonely because this lack of confidence keeps us behind closed doors, worried about how we will be perceived. What does it mean to try on this emotional garment? Will we be picked on, harassed, or bullied? There is an openness and acceptance today when men show up vulnerable. The new measure of strength is showing the edgy or vulnerable side(s) of ourselves while also holding our masculine frame.
How does one do this?
This group will be an entry point to help you learn what this looks and feels like. You will walk away with deep connection, increased awareness, and personal growth and development skills. Relationships will be more engaging, and life will feel more balanced. Walking out the door after 6-weeks, you will notice more preparedness and skills in meeting today's relational needs. Self-love will steadily increase with this knowledge and acceptance of who you are becoming.
Welcome to feeling Empowered!

Meet Your Guide
I am a Mental Health Therapist and currently live in Black Hawk, CO among the beautiful rocky mountains with my wife and 2 little dogs and our newest cat companion. I moved to Colorado 5 years ago from TN to find a different way of life after experiencing auto-immune and heart issues. I didn’t know where life was leading me at the time but I trusted there was more out in the world for me to experience. I completed a master's degree in public health at a mental health clinic in Fort Collins. It turned out that upon finishing the program, I felt called to pursue mental health so I attended Naropa University in Boulder and graduated last year from the Transpersonal Wilderness Therapy Program. It was a very rich, alive, and tender experience overall and I feel it has helped me to step deeper into connection with myself, community, and nature. My passion involves the outdoors, heart-centered connection with my community, stepping into discomfort, and learning how to be a more loving, compassionate man. My goals in life both in career and as a therapist are to raise awareness, build connection, and empower others to trust/follow their internal compass.
