As an ordained minister and NCCA Licensed Clinical Pastoral Counselor, Licensed Clinical Christian Counselor, Board Certified Temperament Counselor, Juvenile Justice Ambassador and Student Success Coach my experience serving homeless women, children and families in crisis I learned the art of "listening". Through serving court-involved juveniles and K-12 students I've discovered it shouldn't hurt to be a child and children with specialized needs matter. While serving incarcerated fathers I learned the importance of healthy fatherhood and the ministry of a second chance.
While serving welfare to work moms and persons struggling to break addiction, victims of childhood sexual abuse, alcoholism and divorce---I too have learned "they" are "me" and "I am "them". I've mourned with those who mourn and celebrated EVERY stepping stone towards greatness and success.
As a survivor my lived experiences, training and education has taught me that EVERY story matters. We are not broken beyond repair, recovery or renewal.
Even if you are going through a challenging situation today on the other side of your pain, disappointment and adversity there is a TREASURE within you. You can live again, love again, laugh again, dream again and LEARN to REPOSITION yourself to reach your purpose and potential again!
