Hello my brothers and sisters,
I am hear to help you through any difficult times you may be going through by providing Faith-Based Christ Centered Listening Support. I am not here to engage in any discussions surrounding theological differences or promote religious dogma but instead, I am here to listen, promote healing, and restore spirit/soul unity. My background summary is: Although I am a semi-retired clergy, I have held a Registered Addiction Specialist certification, in good standing, since 2008. I am currently head of case management for a transitional Living Center for the Homeless for the past 13 years. I was also a counselor and educator for approximately 3 years at the DUI Program in Southern California. I have a dual Alcohol and Drug Counselors certification and work experience in both faith based and secular counseling with a thorough understanding of both Secular and faith based 12 step, as well as a working knowledge of S.M.A.R.T ( CBT) counseling. I also currently do some per Diem work with a local MFT. I have a passion for helping people who understand the importance of having a spiritual friend when faced with trials that come everyone's way from time to time and believe that God can and will heal internal "dis-eases"

No nonsense, not afraid to say what needs to be said, but does so gently. Gets to the heart of issues, whatever they are. Very helpful.
Pastorjd is a kind caring individual that is willing to help! He did a great job with me and I thank god for him! You need someone to chat or pray with, he is the person!
i only just talked to him, but unfortunately only for a very brief period of time due to time differences.. we're practically on the opposite sides of the world.. but despite all that, i have the feeling that pastorjd is a very good listener and - if able to help with my current situation - would be very helpful indeed.. i'm looking forward to talk to him more.. God bless you, pastorjd..
Fantastic listener.
He was really helpful. A very good active listener. His professionalism, resources and attention to detail are awesome. His suggestions to face my situation were quite realistic and focused. The best listener I've chatted with until now!
Wonderful listener and extremely helpful!!!
Thanks For Leading A Ear 😍😍😍😍😍
Great listener. Made me ask myself the right questions. A true blessing.
Very straight forward, tells me what I need to hear, helps me see the truth behind my actions
Good listener & I appreciate his faith based support.
Pastorjd is a very nice and effective listener. He listens and responds in a very timely manner. He helped me realize my problem and eased the distress I felt with confirmation. He knows what needs to be said and knows what questions need to be asked. If you need some guidance spiritual or non-spiritual he will be there to help.
Took the time to explain things and was so patient. I would highly recommend talking with him. Great listener! :)
Great listener! He was patient and gave a lot of wisdom. I very much enjoyed talking with Pastor JD :) Would come again!
pastorjd was the kindest listener I've ever found in here, with caring and sweet words.
Pastorjd is a very very insightful person. He takes the time to listen to your story and accurately assesses the problem. I've felt disconnected spiritually for a long time which played a role in my life today. He is empathetic, but will turn you in the right direction if needed. Will definitely be back to talk to him again.
PastorJD is who I needed tonight. Thankfully he was there.
PastorJD was really helpful for me and helped me a lot. He took the time to understand my issues and really get to the bottom of what was going on. He is very understanding and was able to offer some really good advice.
