Passionate About Inspiring Others
My name is Logan Cohen. I am a proud Family Man (to both Human and “fur babies”), as well as a practicing Marriage & Family Therapist (LMFT), and an Approved Supervisor with both the American Association of Marriage and Family Therapy (AAMFT) and North Carolina Board of Licensed Professional Counselors (NCBLPC). Over the last 13 years in the field, I have dedicated my Life’s Work to serving community members who are in need of emotional and psychological support - especially Men and Boys who are struggling with disruption in their most personal and intimate relationships.
Like most young Men, I was taught to keep my problems to myself and fight through personal discomfort so I could "be successful," even if it came at the harm of my own Health & Happiness. Between struggling with ADHD & Anxiety as a Kid, then developing Addiction issues as an Adolescent in an attempt to cope with Life as a younger Man, I was headed for the same pitfalls where many Men get stuck today.
I discovered my natural Balance as a Counselor in a Wilderness Therapy setting with at-risk Youth, where I lived and worked in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains for three years. I lived "in the elements" without electricity - alongside Youth struggling with psychiatric illness & trauma before they we ready to re-enter their natural community.
Those were some of the most difficult experiences of my Life - ranging all the way from violent riots and month-long canoe trips - to the inevitable painful weather exposure living through the Appalachian Winters by the heat of wood stoves in cabins we built with hand tools. Those experiences - all of the good, bad, and even the ugly - taught me a more deliberate way of living a daily Life that is rich with personal meaning. Later as a practicing Marriage & Family Therapist, I have continued to refine these skill-sets and knowledge bases over the years in my own clinical practice.
I am now an Approved Clinical Supervisor for the American Association of Marriage & Family Therapy, as well as the founder of New Leaf Counseling Group, LLC in Charlotte, NC. After working in the field for over a decade and stabilizing as the sole provider for the beautiful Family I am so lucky to be a part of, I finally “picked my head up from the grindstone” to check in on childhood Friends & Loved Ones.
I painfully discovered that more than a few of my childhood Friends passed away in late adolescence and young adulthood, rather than ask for help. I decided as a Professional, a Man, a Husband/Father, and a Friend - I could not stand by any longer as People suffer in silence rather than ask for help. The holistic healing methods offered by the Balanced Man Plan are designed to support Men in breaking free from old patterns in order to create a healthy balance for the quality of Life you need - and ALL from the privacy and comfort of Home.
Balanced Man Plan is a therapeutic digital experience delivered through Self-Guided Coaching Plans created by a Male Therapist with the barriers & strengths of Men in mind. The Balanced Man Plan has the goal of introducing a natural Balance back into Life so you can get everything moving the right direction for Self and Loved Ones.
