Enneagram [ 7 ]

Lisa is dominant in type 7, which is sometimes called the enthusiast. She uses her unique “superpowers” of optimism, creativity, and positivity to help clients envision new possibilities and work towards achieving their goals in counseling.

As a staff team, we recently read the book The Road Back to You: An Enneagram Journey to Self-Discovery.

If you are unfamiliar with the Enneagram, it is a personality typing tool of nine main types that has been around for a long time but has also seen a recent surge in use, especially in many churches and Christian organizations.

We have found it particularly helpful in that it both identifies blind spots and struggles each type primarily deals with, but also the unique path of growth for each type to continue becoming the person God created them to be.

Some talk about each number having their own “superpowers” and strengths, and we can see how we use many of these God-given “superpowers” in our work with clients.
