Licensed As: Clinical Psychologist and Ordained Minister
Hello, I am Dr. Terry Pape'. I am a licensed psychologist as well as an ordained minister working as a private and independent subcontractor for the Center for Hope and Healing. I served on the pastoral staff of a nondenominational church for eight years before pursuing a doctorate in clinical psychology. I am a charter member of the American Association of Christian Counselors, and I am a Board Certified Professional Christian Counselor. I have a heart to help adults deal with their emotional pain and wounds stemming from childhood and /or adult issues. I specialize in the treatment of mood disorders, anxiety, grief and loss, trauma and abuse, marital, parenting and relationship issues, anger, adjustment and addiction issues. I also work with pastors and lay and professional Christian workers to help them deal with the unique challenges of Christian ministry. I am a certified Couples Communication instructor. My goal in therapy is to help individuals learn how to deal with their emotional pain through growth in their relationship with God. I have learned over the years that it is not one's knowledge about God that brings personal change, but rather, one's knowledge of God which leads to spiritual growth and change. I believe I help clients deal with their personal issues in a compassionate, caring and effective way.
Experience the journey from emotional bondage to emotional relief:
living life free from toxic resentment
The process of forgiving another person or yourself is a journey that too often fails to be a satisfying and lasting experience. In an effort to be helpful many have taught on the topic of forgiveness leaving their audience confused, disappointed and angry; confused about how to effectively forgive, disappointed with the results of forgiving and angry at themselves for not being able to "get it right". Good psychological research has revealed that effective forgiveness is healthy for the forgiver as well as for the one forgiven.
"To error is human, to forgive is divine." Is this really true or just a nice idea without merit. In this seminar the process of faith based elements for forgiveness will be examined:
* Is it really possible to genuinely forgive an offender without restoring the relationship?
* Why should I forgive?
*Can I forgive and still be angry?
* What are the road blocks to being a forgiving person?
* How long does it take for forgive an offender?
*Do different offenses require different approaches?
These and other questions, mostly yours, will be addressed in a seven week long class. Learn not only the principles of forgiveness, but the practical skills necessary to make forgiveness effective for your own emotional well-being. Do not let resentment continue to rob you of joy.
