My counseling practice is in the Portland, OR area, and currently this is the only location for The Abba Project groups. For those of you local to the area, below is the overview of our current group schedule and outline, as well as contact information.
The Abba Project is for dads from all walks of life with diverse ages and stages, all living with varied backgrounds and stories. This is a key part of this forum where men come alongside other men, I love it! I continue to be inspired by seeing dads come together year after year as a “band of brothers” in a uniquely powerful way. It is such a privilege for me to lead and be included in a group setting with men who are courageously willing to learn how to better pursue their daughters hearts with intention and consistency.
What it is...
An educational/process group for dads of teenage and/or 20-something daughters who gather together to:
- Learn about your girls, their needs, their unique wiring, etc.
- Talk about challenges and successes in your relationships with your daughters
- Focus on intentionally investing in your daughters’ lives
- Gain active strategies and support for moving forward
- Be challenged with assignments to activate the learning process between sessions
Here are 11 more graduates who formed The Abba Project 8. Each one is now more committed to pursuing his daughter's heart than when the group began.
The Abba Project 7 stood side by side through their 9-month journey, cheering each other on in their common goal of being fantastic fathers to their daughters.
Here are the completely incredible men of
The Abba Project 3 who came together as strangers and left as friends.
Here are 6 of the 11 participants from The Abba Project 2.
