About Me - Continued
I am a cisgender LGBTQIA affirming Christian man who grew up in a Southern Baptist religious context in central Alabama. While my first career was in commercial data processing, since 1996, I have had the privilege of serving others who are experiencing difficulties in life. There are times when people experience stressful life situations that overwhelm or exhaust their ability to cope. At other times, life situations and circumstances occur and people don’t know what to do. These life situations can be related to: finances, marital stress, job and career concerns, relationship difficulties, spiritual life, religious life, sexual orientation, gender questioning, gender transitioning, and many other things. Fortunately, because of my twenty year service as the Senior Counseling Pastor in a large megachurch context, and also my fifteen year career as the founder and leader of a residential addiction treatment facility, I have been honored and privileged to walk alongside of many who have trusted me with their most difficult and most personal life experiences. I hope to be a help to you as you attempt to navigate through whatever difficulty you are currently experiencing in life. I want you to experience freedom, acceptance, love, inclusion, equality, and personal maturity.It would be an honor to be of service to you in your life journey.
