Rev. Michael John Cusick, M.A., L.P.C
Founder & President
Michael is a licensed professional counselor, spiritual director, speaker, and author of two books, including Surfing for God: Discovering the Divine Desire Beneath Sexual Struggle and Somebody’s Daughter: An Experiential Guide. Having experienced the restoring touch of God in a deeply broken life and marriage, Michael’s passion is to connect life’s broken realities with the reality of the gospel.
With a life story illustrating that truth is surely stranger than fiction, Michael began attending Alcoholics Anonymous at five years old. By age ten he was participating in family drug rehab, living in a trailer park, and laying ground for a future as a minister and psychotherapist. Despite early exposure to a life of recovery and sobriety, Michael’s brokenness went unchecked for almost three decades, allowing him to master the art of living as an imposter.
In addition to leading Restoring the Soul and equipping Christian organizations around the world, Michael currently serves as an adjunct professor at Denver Seminary. He holds an MA in Biblical Counseling from Colorado Christian University and an MA from the College of Education at the University of Denver. Michael lives with his wife Julianne, and two children, in Littleton, Colorado where he enjoys the Rocky Mountains, and a host of other outdoor activities with friends and family.

Jen enjoys being the Care Coordinator at Restoring the Soul because she has a deep love of people.

She lives in a rural area with her husband, two kids and pet zoo and volunteers with multiple organizations.
Diane has been a professional bookkeeper and administrative assistant the last 30 years for corporate businesses and most recently non-profits, including Restoring the Soul.
