Her sensitivity to psychic stimulus allows Doreen to transcend and connect with a higher spiritual world. Followed by thousands across the globe, she continues to inspire and heal through her teachings and therapy work. Doreen's Childhood Doreen was a natural clairvoyant during her childhood. Doreen has described her ability to see spirits when she was a child to be much like the little boy portrayed in the movie The Sixth Sense. As a child the angels were as real to her as humans visible to everyone. But as many children do, she stifled her ability to see and converse with angels and spirits to avoid misunderstanding by adults and teasing by her peers. Angelic Intervention On July 15, 1995 the angels who had never abandoned Doreen even though she had chosen to ignore them since childhood intervened on her behalf. A kidnapping and carjacking attempt by two thugs were offset when she listened to a commanding voice instructing her to scream. Her loud screaming alerted passerbys to what was happening and also caused her attackers to run away. After this frightening incident Doreen began re-evaluating her ability to see and communicate spirits. She began rebuilding her relationship with the angelic realm. Angels and Psychology Doreen's textbook understanding of psychology took on a whole different perspective when she incorporated spirituality into her practice of psychology. She developed Angel Therapy and has certified thousands of students as spiritual counselors and angel therapy practitioners. Doreen's work has been focused on her personal connection with angelic realms. She offers workshops and classes on mediumship and angel therapy. Is Doreen Virtue's Angel Therapy in Conflict with Christianity? Not at all. Doreen was raised as a Christian. She communicates and consults with God, the Holy Spirit, Jesus, angels, and the archangels. However, Doreen is sensitive to all spiritual paths. She recognizes that people of all faiths and cultures believe in angels.
