Minister, therapist, radio personality, CEO, life coach, husband, and father; Nathan McGuire has many titles behind his name. As for me I call him simply: Amazing! If you have read my series “You Too Can Heal”, you would have come to know that Nathan is the therapist that helped me through my healing journey. Although at the time, I didn’t want to see him, I am now so glad I did. I am truly blessed to have met this man of God. I am even more blessed to go from calling him my therapist, to my mentor, to now my FRIEND. Nathan is so amazingly gifted at what he does. What I love most about him, is how real he is.
Not only has Nathan been truly a blessing to me, but he has blessed countless of other men and women. His radio show, The Love Connection Radio Show is helping thousands of people across the country heal from their emotional wounds. Also, in an effort to reach the multitude, Nathan has launched his own practice: Empower: Counseling, Coaching, and Spiritual Direction (Empower CCSD).
Here is Nathan’s story:
I came to develop a passion for therapy during my time as a youth minister, and a full-time admissions counselor. I wanted to be able to help more with my kids and their families in the youth ministry, but I was limited to what I was able to do. At the same time, I realized how much time I spent counseling students as an admissions counselor. It got to the point that all sorts of students were scheduling appointments with me for counseling. I then realized how much I loved to counsel and pour into others. All along, I was doing my passion. I wanted to continue to help people, and I realized that I can do this and get paid for it. I decided then to do whatever it takes to pursue this passion. I enrolled at Christian Theological Seminary, and eventually earned my degree in Marriage & Family Therapy. In my last year, I was working as a professional within Centerpoint Counseling, and earning my practicum hours at the same time. My practice at Centerpoint grew rapidly.
After about 4 years at Centerpoint, I was approached with the opportunity to do some advertising. In an effort to reach the Christian community, I wanted to do my advertising on the AM 1310 The Light radio station. I wanted to reach Christians to help them see why therapy is important. Never did I imagine that the birth of The Love Connection Radio Show would happen as a result of just wanting to run a few ads. I was very fearful about doing radio initially, but that fear only ignited my faith. I knew this is what God wanted me to do. Now after about 3 years of being the host of my own radio show, I am now able to reach anywhere from 50-100 thousand listeners. God is truly amazing!
I began to outgrow my time at Centerpoint. There were more people who I wanted to reach to help heal. On January 5, 2014 Empower CCSD was birthed. My own practice with no contracts . . . Wow! I now have the ability to empower, counsel, coach, and provide spiritual direction the way God has envisioned me to do it. And, He is letting me do it with SWAG . . . straight playa style LOL. God is so cool!
My mission for Empower CCSD comes from Malachi 4:5-6
Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the Lord. And he will turn the hearts of the fathers to the children. And the hearts of the children to their fathers, Lest I come and strike the earth with a curse. – NKJV
I’m here to help families heal, to help sons and daughters heal from the hurt done by their parents, to help heal marriages, to help people conquer fear, and most importantly to help you become the man and the woman God created you to be!
