Wondering What to Do Next?

can strategically place the power of recovery back into your hands.

Begin Your Journey Toward Grief Recovery Today.

It's easy to feel stuck and confused when trying to process what you're going through.

Many people find it incredibly tough to recover from grief because society often misunderstands its true essence. Grief is not just profound sorrow from losing a loved one; it’s a complex blend of conflicting and overwhelming emotions that can arise from any significant loss. For combat veterans, grief can come from losing personal safety, marriage, camaraderie, life purpose, or identity. Healthcare workers may grieve over lost family time, work-life balance, patience, camaraderie, or faith in the system.

What if you could wake up each day feeling at peace, clear-minded, and ready to seize the day? Imagine having a strategy that helps you navigate the relentless storms of stress and grief. Life is bound to have challenging moments, but knowing you have a reliable process to bounce back anytime would boost your hope and confidence.

Navigate Your Grief Recovery with a Guide Who Understands

Hi, I'm Chaplain Ryan McCollum. As the founder of Focused Pathways®, I bring expertise and a profound personal connection to the challenges of grief and stress. My unique journey from serving as an infantry automatic rifleman during the surge in Iraq and Afghanistan, followed by my experience as a combat medic, Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN), and chaplain, has equipped me with an unparalleled depth of understanding.


To date, I've had the privilege of supporting over 1,000 clients through inter-faith counseling. While I cannot claim to have walked in your exact shoes—since each person's experience is uniquely their own—I can share that I have navigated the heavy burdens of loss and chaos personally.

Using Adaptive Grief Tapping (AGT)™ at Focused Pathways®, we will do more than simply address your grief. We will collaboratively transform your approach to these challenges, fostering a path toward recovery that is grounded in empathy, respect, and unwavering professional integrity. I am committed to ensuring that you feel thoroughly heard, understood, and supported throughout your journey with me—free from judgment and comparisons.

Let’s embark on this path together, working towards reclaiming your peace and resilience.

Do you find it difficult to talk about stress or grief?

Some find the thought of discussing stress or loss overwhelming. That's okay. Adaptive Grief Tapping (AGT)™ builds upon Clinical Emotional Freedom Techniques by tapping on specific anatomical points of the body to ease any discomfort associated with processing difficult life experiences—without talking much about them at all!

Here's the plan to get you through this, together.

At Focused Pathways®, I ensure that each step of your journey toward emotional wellness is structured for effectiveness and ease of access. My approach is designed to provide a seamless experience, from preparation through follow-up, all facilitated through our secure, HIPAA-compliant Care Portal provided by Carepatron.

Pre-Session Growth Plans:
Before each session, you will engage with a personalized growth plan designed to prepare you mentally and emotionally. This preparation is crucial as it lays the groundwork for the upcoming session, allowing for deeper and more effective work during our time together.

Personalized Online Sessions:

Our sessions are conducted entirely online, offering you the convenience and confidentiality you need. During these sessions, we utilize Adaptive Grief Tapping (AGT)™ alongside other supportive techniques, building on the insights gained from your ongoing growth plans. Each session is tailored to address your current emotional needs, ensuring continuous progress in your recovery journey.

Flexible Scheduling:

You have the flexibility to schedule your sessions directly through your online Care Portal, allowing you to choose times that best fit your lifestyle. To maintain and enhance the benefits of the program, I recommend scheduling at least one session per week, with no more than ten days between sessions. For those looking for more intensive support, up to two sessions per week can be scheduled.
