A licensed mental health counselor and ordained minister, Jay Stringer's first book, Unwanted: How Sexual Brokenness Reveals Our Way to Healing, will be released in the fall of 2018.


Jay 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. 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.

Unwanted: How Sexual Brokenness Reveals Our Way to Healing is based on Jay's research on over 3,600 men and women addressing the origins of unwanted sexual behavior, why people paradoxically stay in a place of shame, and the journey towards a new sexual story. Additionally, Jay is a lecturer for the City of Seattle's john school, a program designed for men who have been arrested for soliciting prostitution
