In Real Life (IRL) Men's Groups

My good friend and colleague Brian Thompson and I currently co-lead five groups in San Francisco and Oakland.  Brian and I have personally and professionally experienced the unique power of working in groups, and are responding to the need for places that support the emotional development of men in our present-day cultural climate.  

Our groups benefit male-identified people who want to improve their communication skills, strengthen their relationships, and work through the blocks that keep them from thriving in their lives.  We look for members who are committed to depth work and who can attend consistently. Groups are 90 minutes long and take place weekly.

If you are interested in joining the group, please contact me here to set up a free phone consultation.  Visit our website for more information about IRL Men at

Fees and Insurance

The fee for our groups is $80 per 90 minute session. We also require that any person interested in potentially joining a group complete an intake process, which involves 2-3 intake sessions that each cost $160. Each group has 1-2 spaces for sliding scale participants, so please inquire if the full fee would be prohibitive for you.

Although we do not take insurance as in-network providers, we are able to offer a superbill, which contains the information needed to submit an out-of-network claim with your insurance company. Most insurance plans offer out-of-network coverage; you will need to check with your individual plan to find out how much they are able to cover.
