J. D. Murphy
As a Christian, ordained minister, I seek to assist individuals, couples and families with life's hurts, habits and hang-ups. Many of my clients have commented about how much more comfortable they feel working with a counselor who is visually impaired. This challenge of mine uniquely enables me to more clearly see into the heart and soul of those with whom I work rather than judginI believe this is conveyed in one of my client’s testimonials quoted below: JD: I just read this and thought of you. This doctor had been through a personal tragedy and turned away from God. He had gone to see a counselor and was telling a friend some of what he had gone through. Here is the excerpt from the book: “I know, as a Christian, you are going to tell me I should have gone to God,” he continued. “But I couldn’t.” “I heard an interesting quote,” she said. “I don’t know where it came from, but it says, sometimes we need Jesus with skin on. Maybe you needed to have someone real minister to you, to show you the way to God.” “That’s a good way to put it”, he said. JD, I immediately thought of you. Jesus with skin on. You help minister to those of us who can’t spiritually see clearly because of all the emotional things going on. I want to take this opportunity to say thank you for your help. God bless you, your family, and your ministry. Ihold license # MFT-1139 as a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist with the Louisiana LPC Board of Examiners.
