"For we are God's masterpiece, created new in Christ Jesus, to do good works,
that He has prepared in advance for us to do." Eph. 2:10
Nothing can separate you from God’s abundant life, but trauma, pain, and life-stressors often lead to confusion, shame, and anger hindering you from walking in the life God designed for you. Counseling offers an advocate on your journey to overcome painful emotions, discover your God-given identity, and help you develop tools for removing the roadblocks preventing you from your God-designed purpose.
