A Holistic Approach to Christian Counseling

Posted by mercycounseling on August 27, 2017 at 8:05 AM

Good morning. It's Sunday, August 27, 2017. It's been (unbelievably) about four years since my last blog entry, and so much has changed for me, both personally and professionally! I decided to keep the old blog posts which you can view below, just as a reminder of where I've been. One of my closest friends cautioned me about the controversial nature of some of them (then and now), but I like to keep it real; so what you see (read) is what you get, LOL.

In April 2014 I was diagnosed with stage 3C breast cancer that had spread to lymph nodes under my left arm. After 11 rounds of intensive chemotherapy, radical mastectomy, and 41 radiation treatments, I emerged cancer free in June 2015. The "maintainance" chemo continued until the end of August 2015. I was left physically debilitated after all that, as you can imagine; but my spirit was strong in faith, and I never waivered from the belief that God would see me through. He did, and still does.

As I began to rebuild my strength, I became interested in natural healing for the body. A colleague had given me the book, Notes From a Naturopath by Thomasina (Tammy) Copenhaver. Tammy's book opened my eyes to an alternative view of health care called Naturopathy. I believe the Lord led me to her book due to how it all came about, which is another story; but this slender book vastly enlarged my understanding of the poor path of health I had been on all my life and opened my mind to the concept of truly counseling to the whole person--physically, emotionally, mentally, and spiritually.

At this writing, I have completed a 44 credit course in Natural Health Studies with New Eden School of Natural Health, which has helped me develop some of the skills necessary to help my counselees pursue a life of optimal wellness. 

Christian Counseling is still my calling and my passion, only now I can see that it is not enough to attend only to the emotional/spiritual aspects of people's suffering. If my counselees are going to reach their goals of mental health, I must also evaluate their lifestyle practices and offer solutions that will bring their body, soul, and spirit into balance. As I transition to this new model of helping ministry, I hope you will pray for me and Mercy Christian Counseling Ministries and for the people I seek to serve. 

Blessings to you!
