Carmen Dima first came to Herghelia in 2006 as a lifestyle guest. Her knowledge and skill in crisis counselling intervention were soon acknowledged by the Herghelia administration as she voluntarily got involved in offering support and counselling to an SDA patient suffering from a terminal illness and facing death. A licensed Christian counselor, who loves the Lord and loves people, Carmen joined Herghelia’s staff the same year. She passionately worked with patients , staff and students, as needed, with amazing results, bringing recovery, solutions and hope in depression, addictions, family and existential crisis. She worked with us till 2016, then served for 8 months in our newly opened institution – Speranta Health Center in Moldova. She also worked in Podis Lifestyle Center and in 2018 she was invited to come back to Herghelia to strengthen the team.
