Arlin and his wife Cathy have four children: ranging in age from pre-teen through teenager. As an adoptive father, he is vitally interested in helping families with post-placement attachment challenges and to that end has completed the Trust Based Relational Intervention intensive with Dr. Karyn Purvis, and level one Theraplay training.
“Too often we live life in the fog of good health and favorable circumstances. But then, inevitably, something happens. Something difficult and hard to understand. Something that pushes to the forefront the need for wisdom. Is there hope? On whom can I depend? What am I living for? What matters? Will I live? How will I live? Seeking counsel is often the first step we take on our journey from confusion to song. It is one of my greatest joys to walk this journey with families, couples, and individuals (adults, teens and children) as they begin to unpack their inner world—gaining clarity, meaning, wholeness and freedom in the process.”
