I was raised in a Christian household; my father was a Methodist Minister. Going to church at least two times on Sunday. I became very familiar with the church's teaching and have spent my life pursuing God's righteousness and truth. At nineteen I gave my heart to Jesus and sought treatment for my homosexuality. (Having my demons cast out"). Around the age of twenty I personally sought the truth and discovered God's grace, mercy, and unconditional love for all people. Since that time, and because my undergraduate degree was in music education, I have worked as a church musician for the Methodist, the Baptist, the Episcopalians, and the Catholic church, I have also taught Sunday School for adults as well as adolescents. I have worked as a camp counselor as well at Methodist church camp with adolescents. I understand the love of God for all people, and if the Catholic Church accepted open gay men, I would have probably sought the priesthood.

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Gary Harrel. We don’t pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with Faithful Counseling might be different.
Based on our two meetings so far I feel really great about his counsel. I am really excited about improving and becoming the man God has called me to be.
