Tim Durham has been actively helping people at Family Life Services since 1991, when he became Executive Director of the agency. Tim has attended various conferences over the years to keep up with latest research and new techniques to help people live productive lives. In the fall of 2010, Tim graduated from Wichita State University with a Master’s degree in counseling. This rigorous (46 hour credit hour) program included instruction on counseling, theory, practice, technique, group consulting, personality development, assessments, cultural sensitivity, research, ethical issues, the DSM-IV, and other essential subjects.
Tim’s practice at Family Life Services includes work with pregnant women, encouraging them to have a healthy pregnancy. Observing confidentiality guidelines, Tim works daily with social workers, pastors, doctors, attorneys, parents, and clients to collaborate on improving the outcome for clients. Tim also accepts clients who are court-ordered for anger-management and parenting help. Consulting for couples and families in crisis is an important aspect of his practice, as clients request help about anxiety, depression, relationships, communication, budgeting, personality issues, and family conflict. Comfortable working for a Christian, non-profit agency, Tim strives to help clients understand the moral implications of their situation and wave vital truths into research based, practical therapy. The whole person health is addressed and how the person’s social situation, physical heath, and spiritual condition all work together is researched and assessed.
