Better Lives for Men.


The brain is part of the body. Health is physical, mental, and behavioral. It's all one system. Science shows us the mind needs strength training like the body. Just ask Navy SEALs, NFL players, or Olympic athletes. Coaching develops men into the best versions of themselves through evidence-based practices. 


Zach Gerdes does cognitive coaching tailored to men. He has spent time in education, business, healthcare, and the criminal justice system in the Pacific Northwest and currently Northeast Ohio. He has a Master's degree in Counseling and Bachelor's degree in Psychology. He is finishing his Ph.D. in Counseling Psychology. He has spent over a decade studying and practicing psychology. He publishes research on men and health. Check out more about his model for men's health on the LIFT page. More about Zach is at his personal website.


This can be telecoaching or in person (if location allows). Sessions are over the phone unless otherwise requested. No travel necessary. Additional resources will be provided via email or hard copy. Payment is made online through PayPal, Venmo, or other arranged means.

Here's how this goes:

1. Call for a brief consultation. It's free. No harm done. Contact information is below.

2. Schedule a coaching session (happens during the consultation). Sessions are typically an hour. Compensation is discussed during the free consultation.  

3. That's it. Schedule more coaching if you want. Some guys get what they need out of one session, others go for 5, 10, 20, or more. It's your call.
