Kerry Kerr McAvoy, PhD, is a licensed psychologist with a private practice in Western Michigan. For over twenty years, she has been counseling individuals, families, and couples. Her areas of specialty include mood disorders, anxiety-related issues, relationship difficulties, and perinatal mood disorders.
It is not surprising Dr. McAvoy is very interested in how people change. Through the course of her work, she has discovered that interpersonal safety and acceptance which exist in the context of the therapeutic relationship are instrumental in creating the necessary environment for clients to explore their psychological conflicts, unmet emotional needs, and dissatisfying relationship patterns. This insight gave her the inspiration for her two devotionals, Jesus, The Ultimate Therapist: Bringing Hope and Healing and Jesus, The Ultimate Therapist: Healing Without Limits.
The intent of her work is to deepen the reader’s understanding of Jesus Christ’s desire to have a rich personal relationship with each of us. Since Jesus is, by his very nature, love, then he is able to perfectly cherish, encourage, and accept us. Our relationship with him goes beyond any human example of community or therapeutic alliance.
