​What They Say...

​Andre Henry - Former Managing Editor at RELEVANT Media Group

​​​Steve's candor is tempered by a grace and compassion that makes it safe for others to be honest about what they're experiencing and to also encounter hope. ​Steve offers himself as a companion to those who feel like they are drowning, not as a lifeguard but as a coach saying "Hey. You can swim!"

​Christy - ​School Teacher & Coaching Client

​Life coaching is one the best investments we've made for our family. Steve has the ability to help you draw up plans that fit the design for where you are in your journey. ​​You just need a gentle (or sometimes straight forward) push in the right direction. Steve is that guiding force and knows what he is doing.

Ed Bacon - ​Author, 8 Habits of Love

​In the case of every wound he knows, Steve has turned that wound into a source of healing power. That is why he is one of the most mobilized, energized, walking witnesses of New Life I have ever known.

The possibilities really are endless, so sign up today!

You also get access to my monthly mental health resource and the exclusive Catching Your Breath Community on Facebook​.

Each month, I'll hop on a private call with you ​to process anything that's meaningful to you.

It could be coaching.

It might be spiritual direction.

Or something as low-key as two friends catching up over coffee.

Whether you're looking for someone to keep you accountable on your next big project, or a guy with the heart of a pastor who will actively listen to whatever is on your mind, these monthly conversations will be all about you.

And yes - you also get access to my monthly mental health resource, my monthly mental health sermon, plus my private Facebook group, where people from all walks of life come to catch their breath.

Steve Austin is a former pastor who made his bed in hell, and found God there. Steve served the local church for ten years. During that time, he was secretly suffering from depression, anxiety, and PTSD. He was terrified for anyone to know the extent of his despair. Things became so unbearable that Austin nearly died by suicide in 2012. He wrote From Pastor to a Psych Ward in 2016 as a promise to those who have reached the end of their rope: your story isn’t over. Steve is dedicated to reaching those who are hiding from God and the rest of us. He resides in Birmingham, Alabama, with his wife and two kids, and loves all things peanut butter and chocolate.
