His story begins as an inner-city kid from the California Bay area who wasn’t expected to accomplish much. The son of a drug addicted mother and an absentee father, Romal never lived anywhere long enough to call any place home. He learned the “art of the hustle” at an early age. From panhandling on the streets to enlisting in the Army to achieving a masters degree in Divinity from Duke University, he beat the odds that were stacked against him, or so he thought. After a string of successful positions working with some of America’s elite business and political leaders, Romal realized that he needed to face the past and heal the wounds that continued to linger and were keeping him from experiencing the true joy of his success. He never imagined therapy would play a key role in his healing.
