Rev. Eric Gates, M.Div.

For over 11 years, I have worked to educate clients about spirituality in various professional and personal settings. Overcoming personal struggles has helped me beyond education and training to live a more spiritually fulfilling life. This includes making a distinction between spirituality and religion. As I like to say, "We are all spiritual beings having a human experience. We are not all religious beings."


Professionally, I continue to consult with licensed therapists and medical staff in the Austin area helping their patients grow spiritually by providing spiritual direction sessions.

In addition to spiritual direction, I officiate weddings, including same-sex couples, and facilitate premarital and marriage counseling using the Prepare-Enrich program.

I am also a registered member with the state agency Twogether in Texas which supports premarital education and counseling.
