Ronnie Eng, M.A.

Counselor

Ronnie Eng received his Master of Arts in Counseling from Westminster Theological Seminary and is writing a Ph.D. dissertation on crisis & trauma—focusing on grief & loss in the marriage/family. As a counselor he works with individuals and couples challenged by personal growth, individual struggles and relational conflict. Some of his specialty areas for counseling include helping people deal with expectations as high-performing young adults, second career or executive leadership pursuits, and mid-life or retirement changes. He also helps people work through complicated grief and trauma and stress-related disorders, as well as compassion fatigue in marital, parental, and elder caregivers.

His pursuit to understand people in their cultural context has led him to live on three continents. As a counselor, he focuses on asking deep questions, often using expressive arts/play to help reveal mustard seeds of hope for God's children. Ronnie first began working with infants/children (ages 2-4) diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) in the 1990s. He met his wife while serving adolescents with neurodevelopment disorders through Hope for New York (he was Redeemer Downtown; she was Redeemer East Side). They partner in healing heart wounds as group facilitators certified by the Trauma Healing Institute. However, he and his wife’s greatest collaboration has been teaching their then 1.5-year-old daughter how to worship Jesus Christ in 5 languages, as well as recite entire passages of Scripture so well that she began teaching them to her infant sibling.
