Meet the ManTalks Coaches & Therapists

Forget the rose-tinted fluff that shames you for feeling like shit, or the self-help books that only pacify your discomfort. This isn’t therapy, it’s the training you never got in the areas of your life that matter most, areas like purpose, fulfilment, relationships, sex, and intimacy. Stop waiting for permission. This is your call to show up, go deep, and do the work.

The ManTalks coaches will meet you where you’re at without judgment, and be your guide on the journey. It’s our mission to help you face the parts of yourself that are sabotaging you from living the life you know you’re capable of.

Casey Desharnais
I collaborate with and empower men to regain wholeness and live deeper into their life’s mission.

I found my call to this work during a period of my life that was profoundly broken. Rather than ignore what was going on I chose to face it head-on. I was living a lie, an image I kept up built on self-abandonment. At the time I couldn’t imagine there was a place for the authentic me, my relationships were a mess, I suppressed my feelings and I had no clear vision/goal. I had to get deeply honest to change and as I uncovered the layers I found the man I was meant to be. Today I can say I’m living an aligned life.

I believe you are innately called to growth, and with proper support, you are capable of addressing what’s been holding you back.

By standing and facing these places within yourself you may discover that your wholeness is found inside the weight of the wound. The journey may not be easy, but the rewards are high.
My training includes:
Somatic Coaching/Embodiment- Strozzi institute/Coaches Rising
Recreation Therapist, CTRS
Mankind Project Facilitation- GUTS/ Masculine Archetypes
Outdoor Leadership/Guide- ACA instructor
Each individual brings their own unique material to this work, my methodology is rooted in attunement, skilled reflection, radical acceptance, and opening questions. A cut through the bullshit rooted approach which employs Somatic Awareness, embodiment, Shadow Work, and authentic reflection.

The work I focus on is: Kind Man vs Nice Guy, Alignment with core values, Masculine Heart, Areas of Validation, Taking vs Giving, embodying authenticity, intentional parenting, relationship as a practice, purpose presence, breath, meditation

The work Casey does is incredibly important. While I’ve worked with many different coaches to gain clarity of my inner workings, our sessions have proven to be some of the most effective in helping me anchor into masculinity and make sense of what has driven me off my path in the past. Casey’s methods are incredibly non-confrontational and instead have made me feel safe in looking at parts of myself that were previously out of view or undesirable to unearth. I am forever grateful for the impact he’s had on my life.

Nik

Casey understands where your true and complete self lives and finds creative paths for you to rediscover on your own. He has a gentle approach but understands when you need to hear the discomfort. He guides you to find your inner child, masculinity, and true self. Inherently, Casey is intentional, raw and powerful. He’s your partner through it all – a friend, a confidant and a mentor.

Johnathan

Casey is a man rooted in reflection. He brings years of experience in men’s work, is a wellspring of knowledge and has the capacity to ask the deep questions required to bring forward what has been hidden from you and your life. He has a depth of wisdom from multiple traditions, and is a grounding force who will act as a lighthouse so you can find clarity amidst the chaos.

Trevor Bird
I have since trained extensively in men’s circles and am an Achology certified life coach. I’m currently completing the Power of Embodied Transformation program with Coaches Rising, even as a coach I am always learning new skills. My work centers around somatic awareness, emotional resilience, authenticity, and strength.

I believe in creating a space to allow feelings to be brought into the light, so they no longer control us. No matter how difficult the situation is perceived to be, it is through naming our pain and seeing life as it is that boosts us to our higher self. Working with me you will start to become the person you are capable of being.

My areas of focus are: setting boundaries, recognizing patterns, enmeshment, imposter syndrome, embodying authenticity, self-love, and tools for resiliency.

It took me 32 years to feel like I was starting to grow up. On paper I was a success, I had 3 thriving businesses, a wonderful partner, lived in a beautiful city but I was miserable.

I didn’t realize that my pain was the key to my success. I grew up with little direction and no one to guide me in “right and wrong”. My childhood was full of abuse and addiction and it wasn’t until I started naming the difficulty of it that the weight began to come off my shoulders. My life changed as I healed through, the pain of sexual abuse, enmeshment, physical abuse, repressed rage, co-dependency, and abandonment.

My awakening inspired me to pass this gift to other men that are struggling emotionally, or in their relationships.

Working with Trevor has been an amazing journey of self-discovery and self-healing. He’s patient and compassionate, and the methods that he uses in his coaching create an environment that I feel comfortable sharing my stories and true feelings while learning to observe my thoughts and emotions from a third person’s perspective. His coaching has helped me to develop better self-awareness and apply such awareness to my journey of finding personal values, purpose, and happiness in life.

Jo

Trevor is one of those people who lives, breathes, and walks the work. He has an intense passion for growth, healing, and understanding the human experience and has lived through much pain that is now wisdom embedded into his coaching. He is direct, fierce, and will always stand for you, your growth, and your healing.

Garrett Hooper, MFT-C

I work with clients through relational, experiential, and somatic based lens to support deep work and changes that will last. Somatic (body based) and experiential therapy will bring you underneath the intellectual level that often traditional psychotherapy stays in. While a new mindset can absolutely help us, a key to shifting patterns that we cannot “think” our way through is activated when we are able to fully tune into our breath, our bodies, our relationships, and our energy. Experiential and somatic therapy helps us move towards health while in relationship, together in contact. Together we will build awareness of the power you have within yourself to make significant changes in your life and happiness.
