A licensed mental health counselor and ordained minister, Jay Stringer has spent the last decade working on the frontlines of the demand for pornography and sexual exploitation.


He holds an MDiv and master in counseling psychology from the Seattle School of Theology and Psychology and received post-graduate training under Dr. Patrick Carnes and Dr. Dan Allender. Additionally, Jay is a lecturer on sexual addiction for the City of Seattle's john school, a program designed for men who have been arrested for soliciting prostitution. As a writer, speaker, and therapist, Jay’s work guides men and women through the shameful portions of their story and into a journey of meaning and healing.

Jay Stringer’s first book will be released in 2018 addressing the origins of unwanted sexual behavior, why people paradoxically stay in a place of pain and shame, and the journey towards lasting healing.
