Executive Director/CEO
(Listen to  Dr. Pauline’s short radio ads: Ad 1 | Ad 2 | Ad 3)

 

Dr. Pauline Dillard is the Executive Director/CEO of the Dunamas™ Center, LLP. She holds a Ph.D. in Christian Clinical Psychology from South Florida Bible College and Theological Seminary. The Dunamas™ Center is the fulfillment of a vision God gave Dr. Pauline in 1991, before she was a doctor. At that time Pauline was a wife and mother. She also taught childbirth education classes, and attended births as a childbirth assistant. She knew at that time that God would have her develop a center that would help families connect with Him in a deeper way during pregnancy and childbirth. In the years that God was preparing Pauline professionally and personally she felt led to go to graduate school to get her Ph.D. and develop her knowledge and ability to support families, not only through childbirth, but through marriage counseling as well. Other areas of the vision God gave Dr. Pauline are also being fulfilled through her speaking and writing venues.

In addition to the marriage counseling and birth education, Dr. Pauline is a specialist in working with posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) from lifelong traumatic experiences, as well as following cesarean and other traumatic births. She has also done research on postpartum mood disorders, and includes postpartum care plans in the birth education at the Dunamas™ Center.

Dr. Pauline’s approach to healing is holistic in that she believes God made us body, mind, and spirit, and all three areas need to be cared for and healed. Therefore Dr. Pauline will help her clients/students with the process of connecting to God more deeply through prayer, helping their thinking through cognitive retraining focused on Christ, and through nutritional counsel and support when needed.

Dr. Pauline has been married to her husband, Mike, since 1982. She is blessed by his understanding of God’s call and his continued support spiritually, emotionally, and financially. Mike and Dr. Pauline have three grown sons and one granddaughter. They live in Colorado Springs, CO


Pauline has also authored several of the articles available on the website. To see her articles, click here.

In October 2008 they completed class studies for childbirth education through the Cascade Christian Childbirth Association. Since fall of 2008 they have been studying with Dr. Dillard, learning the Discerning Childbirth™ method of childbirth education. They were also privileged to observe John Regier at Caring for the Heart Ministries. During this time of training they studied materials by Kelly Townsend, Sheila Kitzinger, Marsden Wagner, M.D. and Pauline Dillard.

 

In addition to training to be the Dunamas™ Center’s childbirth education team, Jeff has been the driving force in the development of the brand design and marketing materials for the center.

Sharon Prosser
Executive Assistant

 

Sharon was born, and lived, in the Topeka/Manhattan, KS area until 2003 when God called her to move to Colorado Springs. She became a nurse in 1983, and has worked in all areas of nursing over the years. Before moving to Colorado, Sharon knew that the Lord was leading her to move in the direction of working in ministry. In 2008 she started working with Dr. Pauline Dillard in the development and formation of the Dunamas™ Center. In 2009 she came on staff full-time as our office manager. When you call the Dunamas™ Center Sharon is the person you will most likely interact with first. Although the Dunamas™ Center is a private organization, it has a ministry heart—fulfilling the call God put on her heart back in 2003.
