Helping you experience life abundantly

The Inner


Where is your life path calling you? What areas need to be fulfilled within you? Are you allowing the inner critic to deter you from your destiny? From your wholeness? Nobody can walk the path for you; it’s something you must do on your own. Many people are afraid, and through disbelief, allow fear to paralyze them. They don’t want to venture on the path before them. This causes many difficult dilemmas that fuel unrealized dreams: complacency, mediocrity, stagnation of the soul, excuse making, and feeling like a victim.

  •  Jennifer Fuller
    I give Montriel a great review! I highly recommend him. He helped my son and my family during some tough times not only during at the campfire aftermath but before. He is very easy to work with and my son absolutely looked forward to their sessions. He also took the time to connect with me as a mother and my other children with tools to help us help each other. Valuable sessions.

  • Travis B
    After losing my home in the Camp Fire, my life was turned upside down. From Dealing with the Stress prior to the fire, to dealing with instant homelessness, hotel hoping, securing a home, dealing with insurance, my kids, work, loss and an avalanche of emotions. I found myself reaching a wall. Trouble concentrating, memory loss, loss of motivation, inability to make decisions, fear, etc. I decided to seek help. Montriel was able to help me reverse the spun tight web of stress that I was dealing with. We was able to give me simple things to work on each week which allowed me to get control and at the same time learn to let go and create balance and boundaries in my life. I was amazed how much I felt just after 4 weeks. I highly recommend Montriel.

    I've been a client of Monty for a few months now and he has been the most empathetic, informed and by far the best therapist for me. I've gone through 8 or 9 therapists in the past few years and he has been by far the best one for me. He has expansive knowledge in every relevant area and adapts to my needs. As a person Monty is kind, empathetic, caring and fun to talk to. As a therapist and person Monty is truly amazing.

  • Nancy Wirtz
    I've been using Monty's counselling services for a family relationship for several months now. He is a very good listener and wonderfully nonjudgemental. He helps us immensely to understand where the other is coming from and to process areas of disagreement respectfully. I highly recommend him.

    Monty is not just a professional listener. From our first session he was so refreshingly engaged that I felt like someone was there to truly work with me and understand the entirety of me. On any different day I may need a different style of dialogue, and he naturally knows how to steer our practice into something productive. Sometimes he's there to listen, sometimes he shares stories from his own journey, and so often he will ask the tough questions that really pull out insights and feelings that I did not know exist. With his help I have made so many huge transformations in every aspect of life, from my romantic relationship to my professional goals. Life is better since I met Monty.

  • Samuel Geddie
    Monty is a phenomenal family therapist and has helped us immensely as we try to navigate through turbulent times. He shows great insight and understanding into family dynamics and the need for everyone to be heard and understood. My family wouldn’t be where it is now without him.

  • This is not a self help book. This is a self discovery book. The author provides a resource to understand how your brain or "inner voice" reacts and processes life. The author provides insight allowing the reader to flip that switch inside to change the negative "critic" to a positive one. This book isn't hearts and flowers. It is an awareness that yes life can suck at times but if you respond in a positive way -understanding your whole life isn't bad- the sucky part isn't devastating just inconvenient. "Putting your imperfections to work for you." Easy read with a few self reflection exercises. The author is relatable and direct.
