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.

Glendora, CA

Are you stressed out? Do you sometimes find yourself snapping at your children? Would you describe your relationship with your husband as “distant”? Or do you feel like you are going to lose it if someone doesn’t give you a break? Being a mother, wife, or daughter can stretch us to our limits. During times like these it can feel like the world has been turned “upside down”. There is HOPE! You don’t have to figure this out alone. Let’s talk and see if I can help you make things “right side up” again.
