Counselor educators are to produce culturally competent counselors. A task that can be daunting when educators are wounded in different parts of their ethnic self.  This session offers a glimpse into the personal narrative of two counselor educators and their use of reflective writing and discourse to bring healing to a part of their identity that was impeding cultural competent instruction. A review of the literature as it pertains to the loss of identity and the ramifications of this loss will be provided. Additionally, this program offers a glimpse into the painful loss of two educators' spiritual and religious identities, the reasons behind this loss, the ramifications of this loss, and the emergence of a renewed identity that fosters the development of culturally competent counselors with a lens for social justice.
