Calm Fox Coaching
Calm Fox Coaching is an online mental health coaching practice started in early 2020 to support individuals, relationships, and families looking to improve their everyday mental health and related goals.
Our approach prioritizes your lived experience and goals, followed by current clinical frameworks and modalities from outpatient, inpatient, school-based, and in-home mental health services. Topped off with mindfulness practices, client-specific and led spirituality/faith/wellness practices, and up-to-date data about comprehensive physical/mental health. All worked through an intersectional feminist and social justice lens.
In the last couple of decades, the world has sped up so much and we now literally need to carry the world in all its connectedness and media-promoted weight; in our hands at all times. It’s about time that your support systems and mental health infrastructure keep up.
Welcome to Calm Fox Coaching.
Hi, I’m Fox.
I’m a white, cis, queer pansexual, neurodiverse, physically disabled, Jewish, trauma-informed and experienced, married man, who uses he/him pronouns. Try saying that five times fast. I go by Fox or Mr. Fox; you get to pick.
I have spent the vast majority of my life working in child/adolescent care and education and have an educational background in Family Sciences, LGBT Studies, and Human Development from the University of Maryland, and Couples and Family Therapy from Virginia Tech.
I started working with clients in outpatient mental health settings in 2010 with a vast range of client populations varying both in cultural background, socioeconomic status, and varying levels of debilitating mental health crisis and trauma. From 2012 to 2020, I worked as an intensive in-home family therapist. Clients included families dealing with significant mental health and behavioral challenges related to neurodiversity and depression to attachment disorders and DMDD; as well as families in crisis and at risk of children/adolescents being removed from the home. This often included working with preexisting physical/mental health providers already on the case, inpatient facilities, victim advocates, as well as school faculty and IEP team processes.
As a hobby over the last decade-plus I also have significant experience organizing and teaching about sex, sexuality, and consent within LGBTQIA+, nonmonogamous, alternative, and kink/sex-positive communities.
I hope what I shared resonates with you and I look forward to talking with you.
