Steve Austin is a life coach and spiritual companion who believes everyone’s story matters. He’s passionate about an integrated approach to wholeness, including: mental, emotional, and spiritual wellness. As he says, he thinks anyone who wants a second chance should be met with messy grace.
In short, Steve helps overwhelmed people find God at the intersection of faith and mental health.
Why does he do this? As you’ll find out in the episode, Steve, a former pastor, found himself overcome by the impact of repressed memories of a childhood trauma he never dealt with while simultaneously being overwhelmed by the pain others were bringing to him as a pastor and counselor. In a moment, alone in a hotel room, Steve decided he had had enough in life. What he went through from there is what brought him to his “here”, which we talk about in a very powerful episode of the show.
