For Susan Eberly, having a master's degree in marriage and family therapy is about healing. After graduating from Evangelical, Susan wrote a novel – My Sweet Love: Hope for the Wounded Heart -- based on what she'd learned during her studies. In it, a woman going through a transitional period reaches out to a therapist to help her through the process. "The novel was written to inspire others that while walking through the healing process they can remain faithful to God and to themselves," Susan says.
She's also begun another journey, that of opening her own therapy practice, All About You Counseling Service, in Myerstown. Also in the works are seminars focused on issues women face (such as empty nest, self-esteem and inner healing) and marriage issues.
"My time and education at Evangelical gave me a new perspective," Susan says. "As I see things through a new lens I am able to reach to a deeper level and touch the lives of those that I come into contact with, looking at the world with a renewed faith, renewed hope and renewed love."
