James Longo Jr - Scottsdale, AZ
What I liked most about my sessions with Stephanie was being able to speak what was on my mind and not feel judged. I liked that she was able to relate things I was going through back to the Bible. She has a great way of articulating things so I can understand them. We never moved on from a topic until I completely understood it or was comfortable with grasping what it was. I liked that even though the sessions were on Zoom they still felt very personal.
During our work together I learned how to see myself through the eyes of God. I have a better understanding of how God loves me, and I feel like a child of God. As a result, I've gotten over my rejection mindset and the tendency to be a people pleaser. I am now able to make time for myself and say "No" to things that don't serve me. I dive into the Bible a lot more now and read it with intentionally rather than as a checklist. I trust that God has my best interest in mind at all times and that everything I go through is a steppingstone to the future and my end place in heaven.
Additionally, I learned how not to let myself get in the way of my own life and calling. I learned that I have a voice and should use it to help others get through their traumas. I am strong, confident, and know I will be able to make a positive impact on this world. This has helped me see that I could be a Christian Counselor as well. To this end, I have started the Christian Counseling Training Course and look forward to having my own counseling ministry one day soon.
