The Misfit Refuge
The Refuge is a place for Misfits of all walks of life - especially those who have struggled with ADHD, High Sensitivity, and even spiritual abuse - to find acceptance, connection, and growth.
DOES THIS SOUND FAMILIAR?
You've been passed over for promotions at work
You don’t like who you see in the mirror
You have a HUGE fear to step out & own who you are
You frequently feel jealous of others
You don't fit in with people around you
Your faith seems messy and doesn't fit the "box"
ARE YOU A MISFIT?
Imagine if you were...
Knowing your strengths and embracing your superpowers
Loving the YOU in the mirror and knowing they are they best they can be
Starting that business, project, or ministry that you desire
but embraced your inner...
whether you d20, use the force, or play well - you're going on an adventure
Can you be spiritual, creative, nerdy, seductive, introverted, AND curious?
face it - you've played by the rules and they haven't helped. Time to get CREATIVE and BOLD!
WHAT COULD YOU DO?
UNLOCK YOUR CREATIVITY
Birth the creative work of your dreams - music, art, woodworking, making, building creating
Find or create connections that embrace your value - and values. Create or live ministry that is real and authentic.
Carve out a work position. Niche into your giftings. Start a business on your own terms. Lead from an empathic and authentic place.
How we work
Find your strengths and develop them together
Find your goals and the obstacles to them
Find your "party" and adventure together to achieve your goals
Embrace Your Weirdness!
Hey I’m Matthew, I’m a the Misfit Clini-Coach® - a counselor and a coach who helps other Misfits - introverts, weirdos, geeks, and freaks - achieve their goals and find the divine purpose for which they were created.
I use an approach that is varied as we are: individual coaching, group coaching, and classes - all designed to help YOU be the most awesome YOU that YOU are.
What makes my process unique?
LISTENING AND UNDERSTANDING
I'm not a coach who says "I know your path." I listen to you, find your strengths, and help you apply those to your journey
If you're a misfit, you have been misunderstood by those closest to you.
We don't live in that past though - we look at our future obstacles and how we can overcome them
One of the keys to overcoming our goals is found in video games - we overcome small obstacles to gain experience for the bigger ones. This is a key in all of my coaching.
The last key to being a misfit is that, while there aren't others identical to us, there are others who feel the same way. The Misfit Refuge is a place for us to connect and encourage each other.
The Misfit Mentor Story
There are a lot of coaches out there. And so many of them start with confidence. Belonging. They are amazing Captain Americas.
And then there are those of us with superpowers that are understated, underdeveloped, and underappreciated.
When I started on my career path, I had high expectations of what God was going to do through me; but when I didn’t add up to man’s expectations, I found myself completely lost.
It took more than a degree to shape my superpowers - rejection, comparison, failure. I’m not invincible. The fires of trials have burned me. And upon getting through them, I looked back and tried to find more of the lost to bring through.
That’s where I found you.
