Meet Joel Trigger
Joel has been doing counseling for over a decade. Initially feeling called to counseling as a teenager, while studying Psychology in college Joel developed a vision for helping people understand their life story and how it shaped their identity and view of the world.
In graduate school at Reformed Theological Seminary in Orlando, this vision was further refined through a deeper understanding of how the central shaping factors in our stories are the significant relationships we experience. Because our primary wounds come from relationships, healing too comes in the form of relationship, which was key to understanding the healing power of the counseling relationship as Joel witnessed firsthand through the practice of counseling.
In the following years, Joel gained experience in the worlds of counseling and ministry while navigating the challenges of starting a family which shaped his passion for supporting people, particularly in the challenges of marriage, family life, and ministry.
