Inspirit is a non-profit interfaith agency certified by the American Association of Pastoral Counselors (AAPC). Its professional therapists represent a diversity of mental health disciplines. They are able to offer a faith-based dimension to the traditional psychotherapy approach. For some this is a very important aspect of the healing process; others may not wish to involve faith issues. In either case, an Inspirit counselor is a very compassionate professional who views his or her role as a minister of healing, as well as a therapist.
