*Logos-Therapy
For near two decades I have been interested in both the study of theology and psychology. Each discipline tends to deepen my understanding of the other. I have been amazed at the points of agreement between both spiritual and emotional principles that contribute to our overall wellbeing. This is why I call my work “Logos-therapy” (my own term; not to be confused with “Logotherapy” which focuses on the meaning of human existence). In John 1 Jesus is referred to as “the Word” which is translated logos. It means “the word of God.” Logos-therapy is an integration of Scripture, counseling, and education.
