My goal of Footsteps to Freedom Counseling Ministry is to provide a safe place for you to be seen, known, heard, understood, accepted and not judged. I want to equip you with new tools, strengthen your internal resources, teach you to have a different relationship with your thoughts and feelings and deepen your relationship with God.
Much of our growth, healing, and progress will be a process of moving two steps forward and one step back. Maturing, learning, and growing, is often times not a straight forward path. If we can learn to accept this as a process of growth, then we need not become discouraged and interpret taking a step back, as having lost newly gained ground. In time, we will come to accept the paradox of taking two steps forward and one step back as a means of steadily moving forward. A year later, when we look back, will we be able to glean the benefits from the progress we have made; standing in a new space not previously occupied. We will find this new territory to be a much different space from where we were standing before. We will experience our lives and the lives of others differently, our faith and relationship with God will deepen; we will have been transformed and are the better for it.
It takes courage to acknowledge a need for change, and begin to work toward a more fulfilling and happier life. If you are ready to take that first step, I am here to support, encourage and empower you.
