Jared supports people in developing lasting practices and structures for soulful living and deep healing

Jared is the co-founder of Green Fire Collaborative. Originally from St. Louis, Missouri, he has worked in the therapy field for over 15 years as a case manager, wilderness therapy guide, life coach, youth mentor, mindfulness teacher, group facilitator and guide of initiatory rites of passage.  He is a certified Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) coach, a trained vision fast guide from the School of Lost Borders.  He completed the 3 year long Timeless Wisdom Training with Thomas Huebl and is currently enrolled in NARM, an in depth training on trauma healing.   Though much of his training he attributes to a few years of solitude in a yurt.  


 Over years of reaching out to many teachers, mentors and healers Jared found a process of healing and deep nature connection, self made ritual and connection with community.  Believing in each person's need to follow the path of their own unfolding energy, He aids people in developing lasting practices and structures for soulful living and deep healing.

Patrick is passionate about wilderness-based rites of passage experiences for adolescents and adults and received his training at the School of Lost Borders. He guides Vision Fasts and other Rites of Passage experiences for youth.


Patrick made his way to the therapeutic and counseling field through his own journey as an at-risk young person and has been clean and sober for over 10 years.  During this time he was able to develop an understanding of the power of the natural world to restore wholeness to people at a holistic level.


In his free time Patrick enjoys yoga, climbing, gardening and playing with his dog Nox.
