Hi. I'm Shane Birkel.

I’m a Therapist, Podcaster, Speaker, and Educator

 I am one of those people who gets excited about going to trainings and taking online courses.

If you're like me, I'm assuming you didn't become a therapist if you weren't passionate about it at one point.

 I think connection is essential to the human experience and a lot of people are clueless about how to have a successful relationship.

Part of the fulfillment of being a Couples Therapist is to know that the more we do our own personal work, the more we will be successful with the clients we work with.

 I believe that what we learn in grad school isn't enough.

Learning is a lifetime process. Taking one class is not sufficient to be a good Couples Therapist. We need ongoing support and training for our whole career.

In Case You're Wondering...

I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist with a private practice in New Hampshire. I am a certified Relational Life Therapy and have worked closely with Terry Real as my mentor. 

I am passionate about educating, connecting and helping other therapists build the practice of their dreams. I am the host of the Couples Therapist Podcast and Creator of the Couples Therapist Inner Circle.

I am a father to a 10 year old, 8 year old and my wife and I are legal guardians of a wonderful 17 year old. We love hiking, biking, swimming, skiing, and all things outdoors here in New England. We also love our backyard chickens and our two cats.
