Most therapy is designed to help us cope with our brokenness. Healing happens in relationship, especially with God. Why is it that we can pray, receive Communion, and go to confession yet never seem to be healed?
St. Thomas Aquinas says "one reception of Holy Communion is enough to completely heal us!" How come it often doesn't work? St. Thomas goes on to say, the reason healing does not occur is due to (psychological) "impediments", meaning things that block healing graces. I strive to help people discover their psychological impediments and seek healing through the Truths of the Church by means of sacramental graces. I use therapeutic techniques and teaching, which leads to identifying and removing the impediments that block healing.
Furthermore, for those who are at odds with or uninterested in the Church, I am able to use traditional therapeutic techniques that increase one's coping skills with any presenting issue or problem. With an increase in coping skills one can often gain interest and hope towards potential healing.
I'm a married 53 year old father of five. I converted to the Catholic faith 15 years ago, after discovering for myself the healing power in the church. I, consequently, retired from being a self-employed business man to share this gift of healing with others.
