A life-long Christian, I nevertheless believe that every person needs to discover her or his own relationship with God and that may not be what I believe. I have worked with people of many faiths. Many people who come to me have been hurt by others who professed to be Christians, including family members, church members and even clergy. Some have been hurt by therapists calling themselves "Christian Counselors". Let me be clear about what I DO NOT DO. I do not proscribe scriptures or prayers as the answers to problems. I do not generally pray with people during therapy sessions. However, I do invite people to discuss their faith experiences if those are part of their troubles.
