I have been really fortunate to live a very colorful journey. I spent 10 years in technology consulting working as a COO for a firm in Los Angeles. From there I went on to follow my passion of filmmaking and won several awards for my work as a documentary film maker. When I found Dr. Glover's book my own mediocrity in other areas of my life suddenly made sense. The divorce, string of difficult relationships, a seeming inability to move forward. The depression and anxiety. Through the work in No More Mr. Nice Guy and the support of a group of men I trust, I have found some of my true callings, and part of that is coaching and working with other Nice Guys. Many of my clients are creatives who are "stuck" but I also work with individuals around recovery and addiction. I am also an athletic trainer and truly believe in combining the mind/body connection to recovery. I offer in office and remote coaching.

Does this thought pattern describe you (or a man you know)?
** If I am a good guy, then everyone will love me and like me (and people I desire will desire me).
** If I meet other people’s needs without them having to ask, then they will meet my needs without me having to ask.
** If I do everything right, then I will have a smooth, problem-free life.
Dr. Robert Glover, in his book No More Mr. Nice Guy, identifies these thought patterns as “covert contracts” and notes: “Because most Nice Guys believe they have kept their side of the contract, they often feel helpless and resentful when other people (and the world) don’t keep their side of the contract.”
Ted Riter is trained and certified by Dr. Glover to teach “Nice Guys” how to break this lifelong pattern of unhealthy living and toxic relationships. If you’re ready for your breakthrough (or know a man who is), contact him for one-on-one training (firstname.lastname@example.org) or join his new virtual group that begins in February.
