Jay Stringer is a licensed mental health counselor, ordained minister, and author of the award-winning book Unwanted: How Sexual Brokenness Reveals Our Way to Healing. Based on research on over 3,800 men and women, Unwanted shows how the use of porn, extra-marital affairs, and other unwanted sexual behaviors can be a roadmap to healing a person's underlying stories of shame, trauma, and loneliness.
Jay's passion is to equip the church with resources to change the conversation on sexual brokenness. His research is used internationally by such organizations as Fight the New Drug, Covenant Eyes, and Josh McDowell Ministry to help men and women find freedom from unwanted sexual behaviors. Stringer holds an MDiv and master in counseling psychology from the Seattle School of Theology and Psychology and received post-graduate training under Dr. Dan Allender while serving as a Senior Fellow at the Allender Center.
Jay lives in New York City with his wife Heather and their two children.
