Paul has the God-given gift to see beyond a person’s addiction. That helps him walk beside our clients as they do the hard work of understanding and overcoming the deep emotional issues that fuel their addiction, making him a perfect fit in Desert Rose’s world of Soul-Centered Treatment™.
Twelve years into his own recovery journey, Paul has a master’s in mental health counseling (with a focus on substance abuse and addictions) from Palm Beach Atlantic University. The work is far more like a call on his life than it is a career.
“My heart’s always been to interweave the recovery world and the church world,” he says. “Bring Jesus to the recovery world, and bring the concepts and principles of the recovery world into the church. Alcohol is not the problem. It’s an issue of the soul, and Jesus is the master of getting at the hard issues.”
A prison chaplain, Paul has circled the globe bringing the message of faith and hope. In addition to his love of travel, he has a passion for fitness and time spent with friends.
