Born in the Bronx, raised in Arizona. My dad died when I was nine. This began a journey for me that has led me to becoming father to the men in our BetterMen community. Irony is back! Married for 25 years to Ria. We met at USC in journalism school. Emma is 21 and Austin is 19. Both attend Cal Poly in SLO. Wrote a relationship book for men. Ride my motorbike, fumble a bit at the piano, love musical theatre, laugh. Live in Oak Park.
Wayne M. Levine, M.A. is the director of BetterMen Coaching in Agoura Hills, CA where he coaches and mentors men to be the best men, fathers, husbands and leaders they can be. He also facilitates men’s groups, and created the BetterMen Retreats for men, and for fathers and sons.
In addition, Wayne is the author of the best-selling “Hold On to Your N.U.T.s—The Relationship Manual for Men.”
Wayne’s interest in men’s issues began in the early ‘90s with his participation in men’s work activities. His experiences with men’s groups, as a participant, leader and program developer, taught Wayne to “father” men and to support them in making difficult and important changes in their lives. Over the years, his practice has expanded to support couples, young men and families.
Wayne earned his Master’s in Clinical Psychology from Antioch University/Los Angeles. Wayne also received his BA in journalism and graduated Magna Cum Laude and Phi Beta Kappa from the University of Southern California.
Wayne’s been married to his first and only wife, Ria, for 27 years and is the proud dad of college grad Emma, college sophomore Austin, and the family’s menagerie of rescued and expensive animals. Wayne strives to be a better man, husband and father each day in Oak Park, CA.
