Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
I, Jerry Davelaar am a Licensed Marriage and Family therapist. I received my Masters in Marriage and Family Therapy at Fuller Theological Seminary School of Psychology. I also received a Master of Divinity at Fuller Theological Seminary School of Theology. After serving the church for 15 years as a pastor, 10 years as a senior pastor, I have returned to my work as a therapist. My areas of interest are: working with individuals seeking help for anger, shame, trauma, guilt, and depression; working with couples and parents seeking hope and help with marital and family issues. I have a special interest in working with pastors and their spouses regarding family and church struggles.

Because each person is unique, there can be no set formula for helping people find solutions and pursue their goals. I focus on the particular circumstances presented, and help construct personalized goals by carefully and non-judgmentally attending to what is being presented.
