My name is Gary W. Monkman, I am 51 years old and have had an extensive history of assisting people to reach their goals and overcome many issues. Some are working with breast cancer outpatients by taking them rock climbing to adjudicated youth on a three-week wilderness canoe trip. I have been married and divorced, I have one adult child and I am a Gay man.
Transition for me has always been part of my reality. Starting at the young adult age of coming out as a gay man, then love relationships – marriage, divorce having a son, transitioning so many life stages and journeys. Stating a business selling it, working for a company I thought I would retire with then being let go. Career transition, still supporting a family…
I have started youth camps for youth who needed a safe place to out into the world as being who they want to be Gay, BI, Lesbian, Transitioning orientation, or out of orientation. I have supported many in our community who have been rejected by their families or loved ones, who are using substances to cope with their lack of transition.

Melanie Henery ” At first, I thought I knew want I wanted out of my sessions with Gary. It turns out there was a side of me that just wasn’t satisfied with much. After some deep diving into my root cause of unhappiness and enlightening moments. I am on a completely different path than I started out and feel so re-energized and refocussed. There is much change ahead but I am ready to take it on. ” Gary, thank you ! So happy to have you as my past coach and definitely my future coach.
Rue Thomason ” I was transitioning from Male to Female and needed a very open and honest person to help me understand all my options and help me through a very grey area of family and friendship issues with my transitioning. He was supportive, authentic and always present. When things just got dark for me Gary would lighten up the mood with a bad Dad joke. Just those little things during our sessions reminded me that he was here for me. I look back on that time of transition and am so thankful to have had Gary as my coach. “
