About this Episode:
A conversation with Martin Timoney on the influence of Catholic spirituality in his work as a counselor, attention vs. intention, and his experience of becoming a counselor through online learning.
Martin is originally from the northwest of Ireland. He spent eight years in seminary and was ordained a Catholic priest in July 2001. After nine years of working in parishes in Ireland, he left ministry, and subsequently married his wife, Laura, who works as physician in the US Army. He was a stay at home dad for five and a half years. During that time he completed an MA in theology (Catholic Distance University), started an MS in Clinical Mental Health Counseling (Walden University), and began an EdD program in Community Care and Counseling with a specialization in Pastoral Counseling (Liberty University). He recently began his counseling practicum at the Hawaii Center for Children and Families. Martin am interested in intersections between religion, spirituality, and counseling, and in psychological factors that contribute to spiritual growth and development.
