Jay Findling, Ph.D
I am a person who believes strongly that it is easier to face life's challenges when you have faith. This isn't necessarily a belief that I had my entire life. Certainly not as a child, and I must admit that I didn't spend much time contemplating faith based thoughts in young adulthood. I am not too sure that many young adults do. However as I grew as an individual, a son, friend, husband, and father, I also developed a better understanding of how critical a role faith plays in our life.
We are not perfect people and our faith can change over time. Our faith isn't always easily understood or accepted. However throughout life, our faith in friends and family becomes important when enjoying the best of times and when trying to get through life’s most difficult events. These experiences will challenge us to be more considerate, understanding, and caring people over time. It will also challenge our faith and often makes it stronger.
In working with my clients, my goal is to always respect the different beliefs that are part of who we are. I believe that we must live life to the fullest, always respecting others and what they believe in.
