At the age of 21, he was hospitalized for three weeks for severe depression. From that very dark place in his life Craig made a full recovery from this with professional help, exercise, and finding healing in the Gospels along with the love in God’s grace.
Having grown up in a family with all sisters, Craig has been an unofficial safe haven for female friends and women throughout the years, all of whom have gravitated toward him for his unique male perspective, understanding ear, and profound guidance.
During a 13-year career in law enforcement, Craig worked with victims of sex crimes, domestic battery and sexual assault. Wanting to work more proactively to help people, he returned to school to earn his Master’s Degree in Counseling and Educational Psychology. With that he went on to teach student success and personal development to college students.
While counseling college students Craig noticed a common thread with many female students suffering from low self esteem and poor self image. From there he knew his collective life experience had prepared him for his true calling: coaching women to become fully empowered and fearless.
Craig continued his education and has received his Certifications as a Professional Coach through iPEC (the Institute for Professional Excellence in Coaching) and as a Certified Christian Professional Coach through YKI (Your Kingdom Inheritance) Coaching.
