Surprise, surprise: we’re bringing Jason Frishman back on today!

In the Journeyman Foundation, Jason’s coaching group for fathers, Jason and the other fathers talk about how daily life is an adventure and fatherhood a journey. Lucky for us, Jason will be sharing his favorite tools to stay connected with your families so you can start applying these things at home today.

His tools will help you find your core values and make sure you are being led by them in your daily life but will also help you figure out what is getting in the way.

“The stories and the way that we share who we are, have a powerful impact
on not just our reality but the context that we live in.” 
– Jason Frishman

We are very excited for you to learn from Jason’s incredible insights and start connecting with your family the way you’ve always wanted to. Jason’s metaphors make his tools really come to life. You bet we are going to use them in our therapy room too!

Fathers, this one is for you!

More about Jason Frishman, Psy.D.

Jason has been working for over 20 years to support individuals, groups, families, organizations and businesses. Whether as a psychotherapist, workshop facilitator, speaker, or narrative consultant, his message rings consistently clear: Our lives are adventurous and we can author our own adventure stories!

A series of meaningful coincidences and choices led Jason to meet his wife and finally move to Vermont, two lifelong dreams! In Vermont, he worked at the state’s largest hospital, opened a local food company, mastered the art of bulk soup production, studied a Brazilian martial art, began teaching traditional food preservation classes, had two beautiful sons, began to use storytelling for change and joined a cooperative psychotherapy practice in downtown Burlington.

Jason is excited to bring over two decades of work in offices, institutions, kitchens,
farmer’s markets, woodlots and boardrooms to wild new venues. His offerings include individual and group online coaching programs for good dads, workshops and trainings.
