Asheville Prime Timers is a unique organization of Gay and Bi men in the 40 and upwards range (anyone younger is accepted, as occasionally we have members with younger partners).
Locally we grew out of the, once a month gathering, Asheville Supper Club which is the oldest continuous meeting organization in Asheville dating back to 1980. Many members were looking for a more structured group with activities over the year and not just once a month meeting. We found Prime Timers World Wide and became a chapter 4 years ago.
The main purpose of our Prime Timers is to welcome new comers as well as other residents of the area who are looking to meet new friends, experience events with others and for singles or widowers to reconnect with what is happening in the community. We are not a hook up group. We do afford the opportunity for couples and singles to make new friends to enjoy dinners and other activities.
Asheville Prime Timers meets once a month. Sometimes at restaurants or our home, St. Mary’s Parrish Hall. We maintain this website for referral of activities both exclusively Prime Timers and community of interest to members. We also have excursions and tours locally and overnight day trips.
Becoming a Prime Timer affords you as much or as little interaction as you desire. No one is ever pressured to do an activity. We are always here to remind you of upcoming events and send out reminders to our members.

I believe humor can be a powerful tool for healing and seek to incorporate this into our time together. Unique to my practice is an approach that truly puts you at the center of the counseling experience, and I draw from a wide variety of techniques to help you see and experience real change in your life. To see if therapy might be a good fit, I offer free phone consultations.

I work with individual adults with concerns like: family history issues, relationship concerns, life satisfaction issues (related to jobs, living situations or relationships), anxiety and depression. I’ve had a particular focus on working with couples, addressing every aspect of relationship challenges – relationship dissatisfaction/boredom, affairs, sexual/intimacy issues, etc. And I was a civilian counselor on military bases for several years, so I have a clear understanding of the unique pressures and challenges facing service members and families. I offer free phone consultations.

For many years now I have been mentoring men and women from all walks of life. It continues to be my greatest joy to accompany someone from “just being ok” into thriving! As a Mentor & Healer I partner with my clients in creating authenticity, wellness and deep contentment, in whatever area of their lives they are seeking change. The combination of giving very practical, livable tools for direct “next steps” while “holding the big picture” and then manifesting that big picture often feels like this: a new client brings me their life or life situation in a jigsaw puzzle box, they lost the lid and forgot what the picture on it looked like. I am good at knowing that picture and then guiding my clients/mentees to put all the puzzle pieces together.
