Our Minister is available to support individuals and families during times of significant change or spiritual crisis.
Some reasons to seek out pastoral counseling might be:
- Coping with illness
- Loss and grief – whether from a death in the family, or a significant change – divorce, new job, moving – sometimes even good news leaves us with unanswered questions!
- New baby in the family
- Teenager moving out of the house and into young adulthood
- Need an advocate in the schools or at the doctor’s office
- Questions about human nature and the nature of what is holy – seeking new religious or spiritual understanding
- Safe place to explore grief, guilt, pain, sheer joy, disappointment, overwhelming expectation, to plan a celebration or try out a new idea
Rev. Jennifer is experienced in helping congregants to navigate grief and loss, and to explore the furthering of their spiritual and religious selves, however, she is not a therapist. Expect that after two visits she will recommend either a class, a licensed therapist or psychologist, a small group, or some other way for you to get the full support that will help you and your family flourish.
