Personal Statement

From The Desk of Dr. B.L. Armstrong, Ph.D.,Th.D., BCCP, BCPC, P.psy

A songwriter composed a song and said, “you don’t know my story or things that I’ve been through, you can’t feel my pain or the things that I go through.” My desire is to help and to assist you to OVERCOME your obstacles and EMPOWER yourself to live the life you desire, whether you are seeking counseling as an individual, a couple, a parent or a family, the focus and end point will always be to come to a conclusion that is fair, unbiased and true.

Apostle Paul states in the book of Hebrews 12:1 to “Lay aside every weight and the sin which doth so easily beset us and let us run the race.

Treatment Approach

Empowerment Counseling Ministries focuses on the whole person, integrating counseling and spirituality. We believe that the integration of mind, body, and spirit is vital to the healing process. We are devoted to the healing and wholeness of the family, couple and individual in the context of life circumstances.
