Candice Czubernat is a married gay Christian woman and mother of twins. She is the founder of The Christian Closet, a web-based counseling practice, she is also a writer, and one of the “10 Pro-LGBT Religious Women You Should Know” according to The Advocate Online. She has an M.A. in Counseling Psychology (LMHC & MFTI) and has worked in mental health for a decade. She specializes in seeing those needing a safe place to reconcile their faith with their sexual and gender identities. While she is an ‘out’ gay Christian, coming to accept her sexuality was a road filled with much pain and confusion. Her family was loving, but their Christian roots did not provide a context for her to accept being both gay and Christian. In her work at The Christian Closet she has come to find that there are hundreds of thousands of others who also connect with this plight and she counts it a privilege to have walked along countless people through the stories of their lives.
