Eddie and Judy have shifted the forum, format and location of the Parish Hermitage work and ministry.
As of September 2014 Eddie and Judy Parish have relocated from St. Amant, LA to Fort Worth, TX. Dr. Eddie and Judy are working more together with individuals, couples, families and groups. We offer the ability to travel to people’s cities, homes and spaces of living as well has having people travel to Fort Worth. We have several forms of therapy, guidance, teaching and consulting.
DUST AND SPIRIT INTEGRATION:
When I speak of Dust and Spirit I simply mean a way of thinking about helping people that is influenced and shaped both by natural sciences, social sciences and a Judeo-Christian Spiritual theology.
Humans are part of the physical world and are partially understood through the natural sciences. Biology, Chemistry, physics are natural science disciplines that provide some basis for understanding and working with people. Having theories that are guided and shaped by natural and social science thinking helps provide a road map in my therapeutic work.
But humans are more than a natural science being or a social science human. Being influenced by my Judeo-Christian practice, I believe God breathed life (physical, mental and spiritual) into the human formed from dust of the earth. This energy, this breath of life, is spiritual. Thus one’s relationship and interaction with a “higher power”, which is spiritual, shapes and influences our practice.
Thus, our work with people is shaped by these undergirding ideas that continue to be matured, developed, and put into practice through the discipline of Marriage and Family Therapy.
