College of Pastoral Supervision and Psychotherapy


I specializing in individual and couple's education and training.  I am a Supervisor of Clinical Pastoral Education/Training.  Now with the Foundation for Therapeutic and Spiritual Empowerment, Inc. (FT&SE, Inc.).  With over 45 years experience as a minister and relationship educator and as a Diplomate in Psychotherapy and Supervision accredited by the College of Pastoral Supervision and Psychotherapy, I currently work with a broad spectrum of clients.  Among my areas of expertise are marriage relationships, grief recovery, and pastoral training (Clinical Pastoral Education/Training).

I am a "pastoral education and training specialist" which is defined by ordination in a professional's faith association and training in pastoral psychotherapy.  My work is accredited by a professional agency regulating education and training practice competence (College of Pastoral Supervision and Psychotherapy).   A pastoral training center is viewed as a legitimate and important extension of the church's ministry to "all sorts and conditions of men and women."  The center is faith based but is not limited to persons of any particular faith.
