Isaac Archuleta

Interim Executive Director

As a young boy, Isaac often felt odd, like a broken boy. After years of being teased within his religious and academic environment, Isaac started to hate himself. Growing up in a religious home filled him with both hope and deeply entrenched shame. After surveying his religious beliefs and sexuality, Isaac found a resting spot that felt holistically authentic. He has since spent his life’s work addressing the reconciliation between sexuality, gender, relationships, and spirituality. Isaac has spent time as a seminary professor and now owns a counseling practice devoted to the LGBTQIA community and their religious families, specifically to help those navigating the road he’s journeyed.

Isaac’s work focuses precisely on our relational repair – whether that be establishing wholeness within one’s relationship with their self, another, or God. Isaac has a Master of Arts in Clinical Mental Health Counseling. He is invited to speak at conferences, churches, and forums across the nation, contributes to The Huffington Post, and hosts weekend seminars for couples, individuals, and religious parents of children in the LGBTQIA community. He has been featured on National Public Radio (NPR) and comes to GCN with a wealth of knowledge. Isaac’s pronouns are he/him/his.
