Kerry Kerr McAvoy is a licensed psychologist who has had over 25 years counseling individuals, families, and couples. She closed her practice early 2015 to care for her late husband who had been diagnosed with cancer and then succumbed to the disease later that year.

She enjoys speaking and writing about psychological issues from a biblical perspective and has published three devotionals: Jesus, The Ultimate Therapist: Bringing Hope and Healing; Jesus, The Ultimate Therapist: Healing Without Limits; and Pain as a Starting Point.

Currently Dr. McAvoy is back to work writing her fourth book, a memoir, about her spiritual journey to come home. The release date is expected to be late 2017. (Tentative title: The Hard Road Home)
