Meet Austin Conner, MDiv, PLPC
Austin Conner has been with The Crossing for 15 years, including serving as a pastor in both Veritas (college) and 20’s ministries after receiving his MDiv from Covenant Seminary in St. Louis. As Austin continued to grow as a pastor, husband, and father, he found counseling to be a significant tool that helped him experience the love and grace of Jesus.
He felt led to become a counselor himself, so he returned to Covenant Seminary and graduated (a second time!) with a master’s degree in counseling. He now serves as a full-time counselor at Crossing Counseling and contributor to the With You in the Weeds podcast and loves being able to combine theology and psychology in his new role.
Austin believes that your problems are worth understanding and is committed to learning about where you find yourself, what it's like to be there, and where you sense you need to go. He enjoys helping clients discover how to take the next step of faithfulness in their lives.
Here is Austin in his own words:
“My hope and commitment to others: to walk with them through their own struggles so that they can know and experience their value, dignity, and the love that Jesus has for them.”
Austin brings energy and enthusiasm to his work with clients, and is skilled in helping people work through difficult, intense emotions. Austin’s pastoral background, combined with an insatiable desire to learn therapeutic interventions, makes him a valuable asset to WYITW!
