Beginnings

Fig Tree Counseling is a concept born out of two guys deep conviction and desire to help those who hurt.  This collaboration, which spans through the years of graduate school and also our respective pastoral work, culminates in doing what we love to do, helping people live more satisfactory lives. There is simply nothing else we could do that would bring us the fulfillment of being with people in their time of need.  It is an extraordinary privilege to enter into the anguish of another human being, walking with them as they navigate their way to a place of greater clarity and freedom- no longer bound by the weight of depression, anxiety, shame, isolation, and shattered relationships.  One half of Fig Tree ( Jeremy Ezell) has moved on to follow his own story to the great city of Austin, Texas to set up a counseling center at Austin Ridge Church.  You can check out his new blog entitled, The Couch here.

 

 

“Life as a therapist is a life of service in which we daily transcend our personal wishes and turn our gaze toward the needs and growth of the other.  We take pleasure not only in the growth of our client but also in the ripple effect- the salutary influence our clients have upon those whom they touch in life.”

-Author and Therapist, Dr. Irvin Yalom
