"I have been attending Jon's men's group for two months, and I feel tremendously better about myself."
We need each other.
I’ve been told that in the old days, men and women of the village gathered in groups to discuss issues, share good news, and problem solve obstacles that seemed insurmountable to the individual.
Modern life can feel oddly isolating. We are so busy with work and obligations, not to mention our family and social life. If we do get downtime, it is often focused on turning our brain off or escaping all the noise. While this self-care helps, sometimes we are still left feeling disconnected and without support, especially if our relationship is on the rocks or if we feel like we don’t have other people we can trust enough to be fully honest.
Talking out frustrations, fears, and self-doubts with others not only gets it off our shoulders…it gives us solid insight so that we can solve our problems.

Why I Started a Men’s Group
I attended an intensive personal growth workshop years ago which was a huge part of my transformative journey. After doing a lot of work that weekend I was feeling so empowered (and exhausted), so I didn’t know what to make of the suggestion to participate in an ongoing meet up with other men to continue the growth. “You mean I’m not done working on myself?”
Reluctantly, I joined a small group with other like-minded men and it was…life-changing!
I was continually supported and when needed, held accountable when slacking into my old ways. It brings me joy to provide this service as part of New River Counseling, helping us men connect openly so we can be the best men we can be.
Feel Connected and Supported
Group members meet weekly to share their experiences without fear of judgment. Each member commits to confidentiality, so all feel safe to talk honestly in group. What happens in group, stays in group. You will learn the communication skills you need for a closer and more satisfying relationship. You will get connection with other men who share the same struggles. You will feel like you are living with integrity and more confident with who you are, helping you get what you want out of life.
