Today is the day...

My Name is Kirk Barnett.

In 2012 I was married to my college sweetheart, raising two of the cutest kids you have ever seen, and had a great job. There was one problem, I was carrying an immense amount of shame for being a closeted gay man.  Suicidal contemplations were becoming regular parts of my day as a result of this shame. 

Thankfully in April of that year some events unfolded that allowed me the chance to step out of the closet. I came out, told everyone that I was gay and was even in serious relationship, and I thought that was it.  What I didn't realize is that you don't just tell everyone you are gay and then all is well in your world. That is when the real work begins.

After 6 years I finally started working on myself to learn who I really am. Through this work I launched The Lighthouse in 2020. A program built around the practice of daily gratitude, positive affirmations, and growth mindset.  We use group dynamics to create a safe space to allow members the ability to grow and learn to love themselves.  The goal is to flip the switch inside, so your light shines bright!
