I am an Orthodox Jewish therapist. First I must state that It is true that my professional code of ethics dictate that I refrain from, in any and all ways, allowing my religious beliefs to influence the tone or direction of my therapeutic interventions. That said, I nevertheless possess a keen understanding of the value system and moral dilemmas that religious (whether they be Jewish, Christian, or Muslim) clients face. I have a firm grasp on the inner conflicts that religious clients struggle with as they seek to navigate a world of ever shifting mores and values.

If your religious beliefs are important to you in your family, community and work life then it makes sense to seek out counseling that is spirituality based. I am comfortable working within many religious belief systems and understand the meaning, importance and affirmation that a sound religious formation and philosophy can bring to a person’s life. If seeking spiritual counseling makes sense to you, whether due to a traumatic event/ loss or because you wish to find more peace in your life, then please contact me.

As a Jew who is aware that one of the most important Jews in history is Jesus... As a Jew who studies and understands both the Old and New Testaments.... you can be assured that, as a therapist, I have the deepest respect for your Christian beliefs. I am certain that a patient's belief system should be part and parcel of therapy. Hence, you can also be assured that, throughout my work with you, my understanding of your beliefs will allow us to connect on the deepest of levels, despite our differences.

While most Christian Counselors pride themselves on how many Scriptural passages they can recite and how many links they can make from the Bible to psychological disorders, the Christian-centric work of Grey Matters International, Inc.is grounded in one principle: truth. For us, the work is more about truth and transparency of Christ's message and working on the natural laws of accountability and decision making that evolves from that. If one honors God's natural laws of reaping and sowing around the decisions one makes, one is indeed living Scripture to its fullest. We prepare the brain to better maximize the spiritual realities of Christ's words. Contact email@example.com.

Yes, it is true we carry God with us, but we also need to carry a developed Self in order to have the curiosity and discipline to carry out what we believe to be God's wishes. With a stronger Self we also can differentiate our own wishes and needs. We can identify and delineate one feeling from the other. This is vital as our feelings serve as emissaries of our needs. To be a "good Christian" or a "good Jew, you must first understand what it takes to make an even better YOU. That is where I enter the picture.
Kristin Schaefer Schiumo, Ph.D.
As a licensed psychologist, I am privileged to work with children, adolescents and adults as they strive to strengthen their relationships and make healthier, stronger and more successful emotional and behavioral choices. Over the years I understood that the Bible has much to say about how to change our thoughts, regulate our emotions, and treat other human beings. This knowing has shaped not only my personal everyday life, but guides how I use faith as a positive source of support and direction in my work with others.
