About Rick Rupp, M.Div., MFT The Men's Coach

I know a man who drove himself to the hospital after having a stroke--with his wife in the passenger seat.  Not smart.  I've given in-depth counseling to thousands of men over the past thirty years.  I've heard countless stories of successful and educated men who drove themselves over a cliff into personal disaster or divorce.  Coaching can help you avoid disaster and get your life on track to success.  I will hear your story, identify where you are going wrong, and give you a practical plan to meet your goals. 


Counselor, Author, Speaker

I am a licensed marriage and family therapist and life coach who has helped men and couples to success for over thirty years.  I have also taught as an adjunct professor on Psychotherapy with Men at Fuller School of Psychology (my alma mater). I co-authored the book that gives men the keys to a passionate sex life;  What Wives Wish Their Husbands Knew about Sex. My recent books offer boys an informative and structured rite of passage to manhood; The Crossing Rite of Passage from Boyhood to Manhood.  The two books offer a Mentor's Guide for fathers and men, and the Young Men's Manual for boys.  I have expertise with multi-racial and multi-cultural marriages, and with helping Christian men and women apply their faith to their needs in life.  My personal passions in life include my wife of thirty years, our two great children, writing, traveling and sailing the ocean blue. 


 Outside of my coaching practice, I am also founder and CEO of WayPoint Sailing, a corporate team building company that puts new wind in team's sails. Our sails include a day of sailboat racing at sea, tall ship sails, America's Cup sails, and sailing retreats to Catalina Island. Read more about Rick and WayPoint Sailing in his interview with Voyage LA for LA's Most Inspiring Stories.
