meet kathy & conrad
Kathy is a Certified Professional Coach who works with partners of sex addicts and couples. She is the Intensive Coordinator for Daring Ventures, assisting clients from all over the country in preparation for their intensive experience. She is the founder of Recalibrate Coaching and has trained under Dr. Barbara Steffens in the APSATS Multidimensional Partner Trauma Model. Kathy is skilled in facilitating support groups and supporting partners of sex addicts in preparation for therapeutic disclosures.
In addition to her professional Coaching career, Kathy and her husband Conrad have a thriving ministry, Recalibrate Recovery, supporting men, women, and couples healing from the damaging effects of pornography addiction, sexual addiction, and betrayal trauma. Conrad and Kathy also mentor couples who are in the messy middle of the recovery journey. Their passion for helping couples was born out of their own journey through sexual addiction, betrayal trauma, divorce, and reconciliation.
They are passionate about creating a safe place where men, women, and marriages can find hope, healing, and redemption through the grace of Jesus and the love and support of other couples on the recovery journey. Kathy and Conrad have been married for 25 years and reside in Mont Belvieu, Texas. They have two incredible sons and one beautiful daughter-in-law.
Conrad is part-owner of a full-service synthetic rope business in Houston, Texas. He is also in ministry with his wife, Kathy, supporting men, women, and couples who are healing from the damaging effects of pornography addiction, sexual addiction, and betrayal trauma. He is currently enrolled in Bravehearts University to pursue certification as a Recovery Mentor and plans to obtain his coaching certification later this year. He has recently partnered with Kathy’s private coaching practice, Recalibrate Coaching, to offer one-on-one and couples mentoring.
Conrad’s passion for supporting others was birthed out of his own experience with sexual addiction that eventually cost him his marriage. After the divorce, he returned to his addiction until finally surrendering wholeheartedly to the recovery journey. After 2 ½ years apart, Conrad and Kathy reconciled. In a private ceremony with their two sons and daughter-in-law, they remarried on August 21, 2016.
Feeling the call to serve men and women in their home church, Faith Family Church of Baytown, he met with the senior pastor to share their story and their desire to give back to others. Over the past four years, what started as two small groups of one, quickly grew to 60+ men and women and into a growing ministry called Recalibrate Recovery. Conrad is excited to see what God has in store for him and Kathy as they embark on their new adventure of building a nonprofit.
"The Lord is my strength and my shield, my heart trusts in him, and he helps me. My heart leaps for joy, and with my song I praise him.
