Our Purpose...

Houston Focus on Concerns for Women, formerly Houston Financial Council for Women, was founded in 1974 to advance financial awareness in women and to encourage, support and organize educational activities that promote financial awareness in women. Through the decades our focus has broadened to include our interests in professional development, business ethics, personal and professional growth, global and financial awareness and to support activities that encourage professional, ethical, civic and fiscal responsibility for executive and entrepreneurial women.

Through this web site, our goal is to help you learn even more about our Meetings, Membership Information, Member Businesses, and the Organization in general.

Millennial Spirituality - Millennials (roughly 18-35 years of age) are more likely than generations preceding them to claim to be spiritual, but not religious. Many Millennials aren’t that interested in traditional religious practices, but they do have an appetite for spiritual questioning.

Millennials are digital natives–the first generation raised on personal computing. They have grown up in a networked world where world cultures and economies are connected, and they can reach out to people across the world with a click. One in five has a friend in a distant country. For them a cosmology of connection as a lived reality. They have also heard a lot about respecting others; they live in a world where gender, sexual, national and religious orientation is increasingly fluid. Ambiguity is routine.

What does that mean?

Why has this come about?

What does it mean for the rest of us?

Helping others has been Rosemary Behrens's mantra for as long as she can remember. In working with counseling issues, she enjoys helping people to learn coping skills, move past relationship issues, and recognize their full potential. She assists clients who are coping with chronic pain to increase their understanding of the difference between acute pain and chronic pain. Her practice reaches individuals, couples, adolescents, and children. She uses Cognitive-Behavioral, Adlerian, and Family Systems theories. Rosemary believes in addressing the whole person, encompassing body, mind, and spirit.

Rosemary received her Masters of Arts in Counseling in 2008 and her license as a professional counselor from the state of Texas in 2011. She is currently working on a doctoral degree in Counselor Education.
