You can’t fix what you don’t or won’t look at. Our wounds and hurts from the past are deeply rooted in our life journey. Thus, old patterns continue to be reinforced through the ongoing processes of repeating what’s comfortable, doing the same things and expecting different results, even though these patterns may no longer suit our needs. These behaviors threaten to keep us stuck in a cycle. Thus, to effectively address these wounds, we must acknowledge them.

As a Soul Healing Spiritual Life Coach and National Board Certified Counselor I believe my purpose is to help you heal the wounds of your soul. “Soul Wounds” are wounds that permeate our bodies, break our spirit, and reach our soul. We all have experienced a soul wound or two, on this everlasting journey of the soul. The soul has no beginning or end. It is simply a portion of the fullness of the sum of God, encapsulated and bound by a body which then restricts it with time and physical restrictions. The body then endures traumas, hurts, pains, and losses, that have an impact past the boundary of our bodies, that break our spirit, and wound the soul. When a person's soul is wounded, it is hard to heal unless the individual is willing to see how the problem has affected not only the body, but the mind, soul, and spirit. As a National Board Certified Counselor, Licensed Professional Counselor and Ordained Minister of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, I live, practice, and teach these methods to everyone I encounter who has endured something that is ‘soul jarring,’ meaning something has inflicted a wound that was able to surpass the boundary of the body and affected their soul.
