This is a client-centered relationship between you and a supportive spiritual life coach. This one-on-one collaborative, confidential relationship in which the client is guided to make better decisions, look at alternative choices, while identifying challenges and barriers. The goal is to enable the client to reach beyond their feelings or limitations, and focus better to achieve optimal goals. Spiritual Life Coaching inspires the client to seek the Lord's will in their lives and align their lives with God's plan.
Many individuals can experience trauma associated with sexual assault long after it happens. Anxiety, fear, intimacy issues, and shame are just a few emotions one may experience. One-on-one sessions will provide the emotional support client needs to systematically break down barriers, reclaim and restore theirs lives in order to break free from all that is holding them back from truly living their lives.
Relationship building can be beneficial to couples, and families who are looking to strengthen their emotional connection, in all stages of their relationship. Sessions are held in a supportive place to discuss issues and solutions to better strengthen your relationship with each other while strengthening your relationship with God.
Leaving an abusive relationship may be one of the bravest things you have ever done. And I thank GOD you found the courage and the strength to leave. You are no longer a victim! You are a survivor! Things may be scary, and you may not know what to do next. Know that you have your entire life in front of you. You are not alone. We can help! Through prayer and counseling, GOD will see you through.
Through Christian premarital counseling you will explore each others' faith, personal convictions, expectations for your future, and the responsibilities you will have as a married couple. More than anything, premarital counseling aims to produce a marriage that is biblical and God-honoring.
When it comes to grief, there is no expiration date. Nor does it look the same for everyone. Through grief counseling, you will develop healthy ways to navigate the various steps of grief, in a safe and supportive relationship with a counselor and/or group. Grief is not about forgetting, it is about moving forward and learning to live differently.
Client will be guided toward emotional healing and spiritual growth through self-discovery. It is not what you can change about yourself but allowing GOD to change you. You will understand through counseling, the focus is not on what you do, but learning why you do it, and make changes based on this knowledge.
This group meets for six sessions, as we use a holistic bible-based approach to healing!

Survivors of Rape and Sexual Assault can spend the rest of their lives trying to put the fragments of their lives together. Is it easy, No! Is it possible, YES!
Talking about the abuse and finding healthy ways in which to cope is an important step in the right direction. Our trauma group offers just that. It is biblically based, so you will learn how to seek GOD during this trying time in your life.
Children experience trauma too. Sadly, more often than we like to admit. We will explore ways to identify problem behaviors resulting from trauma, ways to respond to children that encourages them to express their pain, and how we can respond in accordance with the bible.
This groups is not for children. It is for adults who want to help children who experienced trauma.
I have been afforded the opportunity to work with women in a variety of my social circles. At least one woman shares with me they have been assaulted at some point in their lives, but never told anyone. They have learned to "deal" with it.
My experiences have taught me that women who “deal” with it are those who may experience intimacy issues, trust issues, or suffer from anxiety, and maybe depression.
You do not have to deal with it! You want to live your life freely. You want to be free from all that is holding you back from truly living in your purpose. You deserve it, and I can help you through my six-months coaching program.
This is a program designed to help you find ways to navigate the complexities of trauma, uncover the misconceptions of sexual assault, expose the barriers that block your blessings to emotional healing and restoration.
If you want to learn more about this program, please schedule an appointment here: https://ScheduledwithUnspokenCourage.as.me/ and we can discuss if this is a right fit for you.
In the meantime, I invite you to join my free Facebook community "Breaking Free to Be "The Support Group" where you can share a safe space with other survivors, advocates, and others who are committed to finding balance in their lives.
