Dr. Sir Pegues
Ph.D., LPC, CPCS
To overcome a disability occurring in 1999 that severely damaged my spinal cord, I began to build a stronger relationship with God. Although I was bound to a wheelchair, this relationship did not bind me to depression and anger and gave me what I needed to live through my daily struggles.
In turn, I became encouraged to attain medical and spiritual knowledge on assisting others to make this same triumph. Throughout my years of practice and providing testimony, I have been able to touch many and be changed the same through each experience. I not only aim to help people put their pieces together, but look to be touched as well by their stories and refine my own pieces as well.
Faith building exercises such as gratitude, encouragement, self love, and confidence building are rooted in my practice for a happier and healthier you. The spiritual exercises that have helped me during my process were prayer, meditation, reading scriptures, and discussing my concerns with God fearing counselors.
The main verses that have helped me are:
Matthew 11:28-30 King James Version (KJV)
"28 Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.
29 Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and
ye shall find rest unto your souls.
30 For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light."
