I was raised going to church until age six yet remember very little of it. At that point, my world fell apart as my parents got a divorce and my mother, whom I lived with, stopped attending church. I missed my father terribly as he moved out of state and I became very close with my mother and sister.
At age 9, I attended a church camp and it was there that I first learned about Christ and accepted Him as my Savior. I still remember seeing a ray of sun come through the window and an unbelievable peace flooding my heart. From here, my mother married a man that I had a very difficult and strained relationship with. Unfortunately, this culminated in a volatile ending in ninth grade, leading me to move in with my dad who lived several states away. After a few years with my father, our relationship also became extremely strained, resulting in me moving in with a friend to wrap up my senior year of high school, whose mother happened to be a Christian. I began going to church with her for a few months, which was the first time since I was six.
Shortly after, I was accepted into the University of Colorado at Boulder and moved there for college. My first years were filled with wild living and rebellion. However, midway through a friend invited me to church and little did I know it would change my life. Within six months I had rededicated my life to Christ, joined a Bible study, and felt God's amazing power transforming me from the inside out and healing my relationships with both my father and step-father. It was also during this time that I met my future wife. Upon completing my Bachelor's degree, I felt God calling me into the counseling profession to help people one on one. I then attended a Christian graduate school out of state for my Master's and Doctorate degree in Clinical Psychology and moved back to Boulder, CO to complete my internship.
From there, I started a private practice with an intense desire to help people have healthy God-honoring relationships. Because of my own broken past, I wanted to do all I could to promote Christ-centered intimacy and wholeness. This eventually led into my vision to create ChristianCrush.com to provide a high quality alternative to secular dating sites to help Christian singles find one another and learn through our posts, blogs, and articles how to develop authentic, honorable, and godly relationships.
