I’m Dan Gabbert, the Men’s Counselor in Kansas City. When I embarked on my 3rd career almost 7 years ago I knew I wanted to make an impact in the lives of others. In that time I have discovered that I really enjoy working with Men on the issues that we face every day.
Men don’t like to ask for help. It makes us feel inadequate or broken or somehow not manly. I appreciate this perspective and understand it. A client recently told me that he “really doesn’t like coming to see you, but I always feel great afterwards.”
My style is not to bring shame or guilt or blame to you. You’re living your life the best way you know how and finding that sometimes struggles happen. There’s no reason for shame or blame in that. We’ll have a straightforward discussion of whatever’s going on, make a plan to overcome the struggle, and get you moving again.
After 9 years in corporate IT, I ventured into the world of outside sales and had many successful years in sales and sales management. I loved the people-side of the business – clients, employees, peers – but not the actual “selling” side. I was successful, it just didn’t “do it” for me. I left the corporate world and trained as a life coach to realize the dream of helping others. After a few years I realized there was more to helping than just coaching, so I went back to college in my mid-40s and earned a Masters of Science in Counseling Psychology.
Now I bring a combination of coaching, counseling, real-world experience, 20+ years of marriage, parenting two teen-age children, and a lifetime of other experiences to you via my male-focused practice at Nothing By Chance Counseling.
I’m a specialist in many of the issues that men face every day. Call me. It’s a sign of strength, not a sign of weakness.
