These courses are meant to help you in your journey towards healing change. They also can be meant to help train individuals who are attempting to facilitate change in the Christian Community. These courses are designed to inform and then equip you to understand yourself and your story more fully. These courses invite you to hope again and love from a place of healing from trauma and heartache.
This is a difficult subject to address and sometimes not even safe to talk about. We have created pertinent material in an effort to address men’s issues with regard to violence and abuse. This course will cover issues such as:
Engaging our own stories of violence and abuse
Men who have been abused in their childhood
Men who have a history of violence both as victim and perpetrator
This course is based off of Andrew’s book and will deal with the fundamentals of the healing process. This course will call you to deeply engage your own story and face the shame, self-contempt, judgement you have had for yourself. It aims to call you to join God in kindness and delight as you move towards becoming whole.
My first book Stumbling Toward Wholeness: How the Love of God Changes Us is coming out in 2018 publishing with Navpress/Tyndale. Sign up here to receive the most updated information on the upcoming release!
Watch some of Andrew’s teachings
Andrew has private counseling practice out of Seattle, WA, called Collective Hope Counseling. He has a passion for walking alongside those in their healing journey.
Andrew was masterful in his approach and in his care I felt powerful when I was most vulnerable.
Andrew is a kind liberator.
Andrew, Thank you for showing up to do the lonely work. I have changed and I am grateful.
Andrew gives voice to truth with boldness. He wages war against lies, against what Evil intends and has used to harm with a fierce passion. I am changed because of him.
Andrew is a fierce and kind warrior. I would not be the person I am today if not for his courage and the faith he has continually showed in me.
Andrew is an emotional sidekick: backing you in the fight to win your life, weeping with you in the mess, and helping you pick yourself up when you fall. Besides my spouse, I’ve never been so mad at and grateful for the same person in under 45 minutes. Working with Andrew changed–is still changing–me.
In working with Andrew I have come to realize the pervasive self-contempt that permeated much of how I saw myself and was at the root of an addiction that was wrecking my relationships and sapping my passion for life. He has unwaveringly, yet kindly, brought me back to the question of what kindness towards myself. In that space, I have learned to be curious and compassionate toward myself. I’ve learned to mourn the broken places in my heart. And I’ve become truly invested in my own healing journey.
