    I cannot believe that anyone could give a negative review of her "worldly" credentials. I definitely believe God has given her His credentials, and I hate for anyone to miss this blessing that she has made in these videos. I have seen several mobile education videos, and this one is definitely top notch. I have been a psychiatric nurse for 22 years, and Miss Fitzpatrick definitely has insight on providing counseling to those who are suffering. Many people have difficulty viewing God in the correct perspective, ie thinking "how can God love someone like me." We all are corrupt, and this counselor reminds us that when we are being tempted to believe or act in a certain way, that we should remind ourselves that God does love us, and we need to continually remind ourselves of what God has done for us to demonstrate His love. She gives good practical insights to remind us of how our savior is transforming us, and to encourage others of God's love. When we know how much God loves us, and has forgiven us, then we will be encouraged to do the same for others when they wrong us.

  2. Teemu Phillips
    This author is NOT a member of the National Association of Nouthetic Counselors (now the Association of Certified Biblical Counselors) and these "Seminary level lectures" are delivered by someone whose "MA" is from an unaccredited school widely regarded as a diploma mill. Her views on "Gospel-Centered Counseling" and sanctification are far afield from the mainstream of the biblical counseling movement.
