Bio

Stephen has experienced first-hand oppression from religious organizations and institutions from early childhood. During his 20s and 30s, Stephen attended ex-gay ministry support groups, participated in sexual re-orientation programs, and engaged in reparative therapy counseling.  Stephen started attending a Metropolitan Community Church in 2003 and sought understanding of the original Scripture references on homosexuality in the Bible. In 2010, Stephen addressed his addiction issues and started his journey in recovery.  

Stephen earned his Master of Social Work degree in 2016 and became licensed as a Clinical Social Worker in 2018.   He is currently living with his life partner and working for a Community Mental Health Clinic as a mental health/addictions clinician.  He also has his own private practice, Interconnection Counseling Services, LLC.

Stephen has a genuine passion to help others who have been harmed by the ex-gay movement and religious oppression.
