Our clients come from a variety of Protestant, Catholic, Evangelical Christian and Jewish backgrounds. Some do not believe in God.
Rev. Tallman’s rich background, training, and experience with a wide variety of faiths enables him to understand your heritage.
Rev. Tallman believes deeply in the personal, redeeming, loving God who is revealed in the Scriptures of the Old and New Testament and most fully in the person of Jesus Christ. He never pushes his faith on his clients. He feels it is important for all of his clients, even atheists, to understand his blief system.
A few years ago a study by Psychology Today found that less than 20% of the mental health professionals in the United States admitted they believed in a personal God. Many of those who do believe in a personal God do NOT feel qualified or comfortable discussing the faith of their clients.
Government subsidized and other counseling centers often prohibit their mental health professionals from discussing matters of faith with their clients.
The majority of therapists do not have proper training or experience in using the faith of their clients to help them heal. This may be part of the reason these professionals must turn to medication as the primary method of assisting their clients.
