Rev. Brian K.
Shaffer, BA, MA, CPBS, GC-C, FT
My name is Brian Shaffer and I am an ordained Anglican
Deacon with over 15 years experience in chaplaincy, pastoral care, and grief,
loss and bereavement. I’ve worked in long-term care, hospital and hospice
settings and specialize in Pastoral Bereavement Counseling. My
passion has always been to walk along side people in their deep, darkest times
to bring a compassionate, comforting and supportive presence.
Being a compassionate presence reflects
an attitude of openness and trust in God, imploring me to stand alongside you in
the losses and challenges and difficulties in your life. It is important
to realize that you are not alone. My goal in counseling support is to
engage in best practice. This is also about the best practices in
life. My approach is to give and live life in its fullness --- to put
meaning into live, hope into a future, life into dying, love into caring, and
spirit into all that I am and do.
To ensure my own well being, I spend a
great deal of time in prayer and meditation, playing golf, and running agility
with my Cardigan Welsh Corgi, Margaret. Additionally, I enjoy reading, being
in nature, and traveling.
