Shawn Helvey

Owner, Therapist & Mentor

“I believe that, using positive male supports in combination with experiencing the outdoors to learn valuable lessons, we can prepare our boys to move strongly past the phase of adolescence and into adulthood.”

 
 

Shawn Helvey is a therapist and mentor who specializes in working with young men transitioning from adolescence into adulthood. He has done considerable work in a wilderness setting, ranging from co-leading trips with groups of young men to coordinating therapeutic retreats with them and their families. He has also worked as a mentor and coach, and earned his master’s degree in Mental Health Counseling from the University of Central Florida in 2015. Shawn served as the Program Manager of the Greater Gallatin Day Treatment Center with Youth Dynamics for over two years, where he developed the structure and served in a therapeutic role working with young people in need of greater support than the public school can provide.

Shawn is a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor (LCPC) in the state of Montana and works full time with men of all ages and their families through ManMade Mentors. Shawn is committed to the idea that “it takes a village” to raise a child and is working to build and integrate this into our culture. Shawn currently lives in Bozeman, Montana with his wife Alisha.
