Are you a person living a life in secret pain? People are hurting and living broken lives and just simply want the pain to stop. They do not understand how to make this happen and continue to live in pain day after day, month after month, and year after year. Maybe you are dealing with life well but you know a person who could use some help - please talk to them and ask them to contact us! God put a conviction on my heart that I must reach out to others in pain and offer a helping hand through Christian Counseling.
It is time I make my stand that I will do all I can to help stop the pain of many issues destroying marriages - families - and children. I feel that families/marriages are under attack by the following:
Sexual Abuse / Rape: (Research: 1 in 4 women and 1 in 6 men will be sexually abused before 18! This is the reported cases so the numbers are probably much higher)
Incest: (Research: Of the sample studied - 34.9% Father - Daughter (most common incest) followed by 14% Brother - Sister (second most common incest)
Domestic Violence: (Research: One study revealed - 23.4% adult/adolescent females exposed to violence - 72.3% were male perpetrators)
Drug and Alcohol Addictions: (Research: 21.5 American adults (12/older) have a substance disorder - 1 out of 8 have a drug disorder - 7 million struggle with drug addiction/disorder)
Sexual Addictions/Pornography: (Research: 40 million are regular daily visitors to porn sites - 25% of all search engine requests are pornographic (68 million a day) - 90% of children will view a porn site before they are 18)
Suicide Prevention / Family Recovery of Suicide
Marital Issues/Marriage (and Premarital) Counseling
Family Issues/Family Counseling
If you feel you are suffering from any of the above, please know you don't have to sit in darkness and silence anymore. I will help you and hopefully you will come out into the light and live a life of freedom!
Please know that I will offer my services to you at no cost to you so please know you have nothing stopping you from reaching out to get the help you deserve.
I am not ashamed to admit that many years ago I suffered from drug (heroin) addiction and alcohol addiction. For many years I refused to accept the truth and lived in denial. I also am a survivor of domestic violence/abuse which left great scars on my heart that I never knew could be healed. The fear of intimacy due to lack of bonding caused great attactment issues and left me in great pain and separation from others. I lived sixty years in fear and bondage so I am quite aware of living a painful life in secret and toment. However, God made a path to freedom for me. He will offer the same path to freedom for you!
