Bringing out treasures new & old from the storeroom (see Matthew 13.52)
With two masters degrees, I have some unique interests. My interests in counseling and family theory have always been philosophical and theoretical. In Theology I enjoy studying very early Christian literature (circa A.D. 300 and before). I also enjoy reading those who are studying that era and applying it to our times.
In my writings, my hope is always to integrate, whether it’s psychological theory with Theology, or Theology with praxis.
On Patheos, I post a couple times each week. One is usually a vlog, perhaps a sermon or sermon snippet. The other is generally from one of the writings. The writings are normally from my storeroom of academic or professional publications, new and old.
I have clinical and pastoral experience with youth, young adults, and various adult populations.
Even though I’m a marriage and family specialist, I can and do see individuals as well. I work with individuals, couples, families, or various members of families.
Although people are generally facing critical issues, there are many other reasons to consider counseling. For instance, I’ve offered career counseling, counseling for ministers in transition, and pre-marital counseling.
I’ve also seen clients for critical issues. Some examples are child development, adolescence, aging, consulting, various disorders, anxiety, depression, pornography, drugs, individuals, couples, intimacy, extramarital affairs, parenting, remarriage, blended families, spirituality, and religion.
I only offer counseling online through Zoom. Michigan law focuses on the location of the client, so I can counsel anyone in Michigan via Zoom.
