So, in my last blog, I sort of jogged around the idea of Pastoral Counseling being an avenue for God to work through the counselor and the client in ways that help both of them grow in faith and in health. I mean for this blog to be a continuation of that, but to highlight another avenue of how Pastoral Counseling calls the counselor to be closer to God through the vessel of the client’s experience’s. First, as you will find is typical of me, I will offer a real life example.
Hello! I am a 20-something grad student, and full time substance abuse counselor with the ability to overthink anything and everything. Born in Ohio, lived in a few other states since then, now hailing from Pittsburgh and trying to make sense of life both as a professional and perpetual student, I’ve developed this blog to keep track of my thoughts, specifically about the field of Pastoral counseling and other concepts about counseling, healing and self-actualization as a lifelong process. When I’m not overthinking things, I enjoy painting, drawing, reading, laughing and watching detective shows. (Like it’s my job.)
