About Me

Bio

My name is David Flowers. I have been married to my high school sweetheart, Christy, since 1988, and we have three daughters. I have been in the ministry since 1994, serving since 2002 in a church I planted. I also teach part-time in Spring Arbor University’s Master of Arts program in Counseling and run a small private counseling practice.

Multiple Sclerosis

I have lived with multiple sclerosis since 1990. I will occasionally blog on MS-related issues, and keep friends, family, and all other interested parties updated on the status of my struggle with MS.

Education, Training, Memberships

I have a B.S. in Clinical/Community Psychology from the University of Michigan-Flint, and an MA in Counseling from Oakland University. I am an ordained minister in the Free Methodist Church of North America and a Licensed Professional Counselor in the state of Michigan. I am certified to use the Prepare/Enrich premarital and couple counseling programs and have nearly fifteen years of experience using them successfully.

I am a member of the Michigan Counseling Association and the Michigan Association for Marriage and Family Counseling.

Teaching

I currently teach almost exclusively in the M.A. in Counseling program, preparing aspiring counselors for careers in the field. Classes I teach include:

  • Theories of Counseling
  • Techniques of Counseling
  • Human Development
  • Psychopathology
  • Aspects of Grief and Loss
  • Mental Illness and Families (for Master of Family Studies program)

Getting Therapy

I do not offer therapy online or through email, and my posts and communications via all media should not be construed as therapy. If you would like information about my private practice, it is available here.

      Thanks, Dave. I really appreciate you taking the time to drop me a note. Awesome. I’ll be sure to check out yours as well. Thanks for the heads-up on the Facebook thing. There’s some kind of internal error at Facebook that’s not being addressed so I guess for now I’ll need to pull those links down entirely. Peace to you!
