SEAN FAULKNER, MA

Therapist Associate

Sean Faulkner completed his MA in Counseling, specializing in Addictions, from Grand Rapids Theological Seminary. Sean is a convert to the Catholic faith after being raised in a devoutly Christian home. Born in Japan to parents who served as missionaries, Sean was aware of Christ’s love to the whole world from a young age. It was much later, while studying to be a counselor at a Protestant Seminary, that Sean sought truth from a variety of sources including Catholic priests, scholars, and close friends.

He eventually discovered that the fullness of truth resides in the Catholic Church that Christ established and he joyfully & proudly entered this Church on Easter of 2013. He is now passionate about allowing the truth and love of Jesus to help transform people’s lives through Catholic mental health counseling.
