Have you ever felt lost with no sense of purpose? This was me about a decade ago. I was searching, and searching but still I could not find peace, joy, love, nor happiness.

Have you ever felt lost with no sense of purpose? This was me about a decade ago. I was searching, and searching but still I could not find peace, joy, love, nor happiness. I felt stuck with the life I was in. I felt as though God could have cared less about me. Basically, I felt self-pity, like a failure, and alone. I did not even love myself, nor did I know how to love.
I can remember to this day when my transformation journey started. I had just bought a home in Rowlett, Texas and there was this small church within walking distance of my home. So, after about a year in my home, I decided to try God. Not to say that I did not know Him, I was just playing with Him. I went to that church the first time, but nothing happened. About a few months later I decided to give it another try. Oh my! This time the Pastor was back from a preaching engagement, and it was if God was speaking to me through this man!
God does that, you know. He allows and uses others to gain our attention. I joined the church, became an active member, attended Bible Study, and Discipleship Training regularly. I was so hungry for God! So much so, that I started Seminary. And here I am! I finally found my purpose in life. I didn't know it then, but many of my friends and family often called me for advice, a ear to listen to, and things they needed to get off their chest. I was good at it! When I first started Seminary I wanted to preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ, but then the Holy Spirit guided me to Biblical Counseling, I could not have chosen a better path for my life. He is always right!
I am a graduate of Luther Rice College & Seminary in Lithonia Georgia, with a Master's and Bachelor's in Religion/Biblical Counseling. I am a licensed Minister. A Certified Facilitator in "Care & Counsel for Combat Trauma" with the American Association of Christian Counselors. I am the founder of Tears of Trauma Foundation, it is a 501(c)3 non-profit that assist family members and spouses in relation with veterans who suffer from combat related PTSD/TBI.
It's not the papers (certification & degree) that gives me all the credentials needed to be an effective counselor, it is also from practical experience that is most beneficial to those I counsel, and support. I was married to a combat Marine who suffers from PTSD. He has turned his trauma into triumph, he is the National Director of Operations for a foundation that assist veterans and first responders who suffer from PTSD. I also have healed scars from life lessons, both ordained and self inflicted.
I would love to be a part in your healing journey. Actually, it would be a privilege! I am flexible, and my office is located in Marshall Texas . But, do not allow that to stop you from booking an appointment with me, as I am also available online via Zoom.
I am here to be a servant for God, and that is serving His people.
May God Bless you, and my you find your God ordained purpose in this life!
