FAITH BASED HEALING


Faith-Based Healing

`

Faith Based Healers are both spiritual lay counselors and trained ministerial, clinical, mental health professions such as Pastoral Thera-pists, who help clients remove blocks to integrate their mind, body and spirit to be more authentic and fulfilled in their daily lives.  

Individuals and couples who seek pastoral counseling may or may not have strong  religious beliefs.   It is the job of the Faith Based Healer or Christian Counselor to help their clients identify the larger lesson or meaning behind their challenges. 

Faith based means open to spirit and or belief that in something greater than self supports and nurtures us and our identity is larger than our feelings, thoughts and past experiences.  It’s also the belief that “with God all things are possible.” Matthew/19-26.

`

Faith Based Healers, such as Pastoral Therapists, are also trained to integrate behavioral sciences and religious/spiritual principles with the therapeutic process.  They are specialists in “first take the plank out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother’s eye.”  Matthew 7:5.  Faith Based Healers also specialize in integrating mind, body spirit or returning the person to their original wholeness by removing blocks.  

`

By identifying the nature of one’s disconnection and separation from wholeness, joy, love and aliveness, individuals are able to release themselves from their own limitation and see the Truth in themselves and others and become free (John 8:32) and return to their integrative functioning or original wholeness.

`

According to the Pew Research Center, 2012, ” Spiritual beliefs and practices have been determined to be central part of the health and integration of individuals across religious traditions, sexual orientation, races/ethnicities, classes, ages, and genders.

In the United States, 89 percent of adults believe in “God or a universal spirit” (Pew Research Center, 2015), and “worldwide, more than eight-in-ten people identify with a religious group” (Pew Research Center, 2012).”

Unfortunately, according to the latest research from The Association of Pastoral Counselors, only 59 percent of participants in a 2014 study conducted by the Pew Research Center (2015) indicated feeling a sense of spiritual well-being at least once per week.

That means a large percentage of individual are not connected to their sense of spiritual well-being and struggle with issues without a spiritiual perspective.

It is not surprising then that interest in spiritually-integrated counseling and psychotherapy has increased among clients and clinicians (Plante, 2007).  Spiritually-integrated mental health care has been shown through empirical research to be effective for individuals experiencing grief, depression, anxiety, and a variety of other presenting problems (Smith, Bartz, & Richards, 2007).

According to a nationwide survey by the American Association of Pastoral Counselors (AAPC), 83 percent of Americans believe their spiritual faith and religious beliefs are closely tied to their state of mental and emotional health. Three-fourths say it’s important for them to see a professional counselor who integrates their values and beliefs into the counseling process. (1)

According to a recent Psychology article Observant Americans may feel most comfortable seeking help outside the traditional psychological profession because mental health professionals tend to be less religious and have a deficit of spiritual training which is becoming increasingly more important to the general population.(2)

As viewed by the  Pastoral Medical Association,(PMA,) “Faith Based Counseling” (FBC) focuses on the care of the whole person – mental, physical and spiritual – while maintaining ecclesiastical values. The aim of FBC is to help people regain or maintain a sense of hope for their lives founded upon their own spiritual values.

Faith-based healers provide mind, body, spirit integration,  healing and counseling services to their clients, combining theology and spirituality with theories of modern behavioral science. Patients who seek faith-based counseling are looking for a counselor who understands the importance of their spiritual beliefs.

`
It’s important to note: that all Pastoral Medical Association (PMA) practitioners do  “not practice medicine.  More specifically, this practitioner Dr. Timothy Ryan, Ph.D., D.Div.Ps.D.  does not: examine, diagnose, treat, offer to treat, cure, or attempt to cure: any physical or mental disease or disorder, or any physical deformity or injury.  Nor does this practitioner prescribe or recommend any drugs or medicine.”

People who seek FBC are searching for answers relating to life’s challenges and/or looking for meaning and value in their lives, and open to having their lives transformed and supported in a positive way by learning, acknowledging and adhering to scriptural principles.

If you believe in a mind /body connection and have the faith of a mustard seed you are in the right place to find a fast track to peace of mind.   We offer religious and non religious individuals, who aare receptive to looking at life from a spiritual perspective and new way to see themselves and their challenges.    FBC may be what you need to break through stuck limiting patterns and beliefs and behavior patterns which keep you from living your life with greater meaning and fulfillment.  As a faith based healer and counselor, my goal is to help you learn concrete principles and skills to remove barriers and return you to your natural spiritual wisdom and God given natural state of wholeness.

A NOTE FROM DR. RYAN:

`
My personal spiritual practice as a christian is an important part of my own healing and personal security and peace of mind.   My wife and I have also practiced Buddhism, Hinduism and started out Jewish.   I could not do the work I do without a close personal connection to Jesus and Spiritual Principles. I believe God is the ultimate Healer and Jesus the Redeemer and Savior.   I seek to make my practice a place for God to Shine and Holy Spirit to clear blocks and restore us to our Holy Perfection and Ultimate Truth.
`
I love helping  individuals and couples become more confident in self / other authentic connection.   When we are self-connected we are in touch with our original wholeness and feel whole, complete and loving and loved.  I  use a number of techniques to help you rediscover your own self-connection and experience of wholeness,  creativity,  joy, and aliveness. 
`
There is nothing that gives me more joy than seeing people wake up to the Truth of their Being and live out of their own innate intuitive  spiritual resources. 
 `
I believe that when we realize we are made in the image of Love Intelligence (God)  and know Love is our only source  we naturally heal and seek to extend love to others.  I believe that Gods wisdom and love is always available to us as blocks are removed.  We also can have faith that God, Love is ever present and our needs are always met as we learn to connect  with God or Love.  As we advance,  we also realize that our only purpose and  function is the one God gave us to be loving and know we are loved.  
 `
My mission is to teach skills to help you maximize your natural ability to give and receive love because you are and image and likeness of God or Love created you like itself.   I will support you to  continually work on increasing your awareness and choice  to free yourself from limitations and  increase your natural ability to have freedom of choice, more meaningful connections  and operate from your own True Authentic Self connection.  
`
When we are self-connected, we are totally secure in knowing the Truth of who we are and opperate from a sense of wholeness, or Love as our Only Source. Life becomes about curiosity, discovery and joy of better connection with aliveness rather than managing self and others.
`
Learning to trust that you have a secure bond to love, will create a doorway to leave the fear/guilt identity  barriers behind and realize these egoic barriers are no longer a  block to your ultimate happiness. How you see yourself, your relationships and your life determine the way you will treat yourself and others.  It will also determined the way you expect to be treated.  
`
 I have thirty years experience in removing barriers to love and returning individuals, couples, parents and children to their original nature of whole, complete, and when blocks are removed, have inner wisdom and numerous resources to live a free and joyous self.
Isn’t Time you reconnected to yourself and claimed your original happiness?
