The Writings

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 300 AD 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.  The first of the week is usually a vlog, perhaps a sermon or sermon snippet.  The second post each week is generally from one of the writings.  The writings are normally from my storeroom of academic or professional publications, new and old.

The Practice

I have pastoral and clinical 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 some type of major issue, there are many other reasons to consider counseling. For instance, I’ve offered career counseling, counseling for ministers in transition, and pre-marital counseling. As a minister, I also serve as a wedding officiant.

Now I also offer counseling online through Zoom. Michigan law allows me to counsel over state lines, but yields to the counseling laws of the client’s state.
