Associate Professor of Counseling and Pastoral Care, Western Theological Seminary
To see me for counseling, visit me here.
I’ve spent the last 15 years in a fluid combination of pastoral ministry, seminary teaching, and clinical counseling. I write mostly about the intersections of psychology, theology, and Christian spirituality.
Most recently, I was a teaching pastor at City Church San Francisco, where I co-founded Newbigin House of Studies, an urban and missional training center with M.Div. and M.A. offerings through Western Theological Seminary, MI. I’ve started two church counseling centers, a Lay Counseling Program further developed by my City Church colleagues, and a Fellows program. All of this represents my commitment to formation for mission.
