Karen Harris - Mansfield, MA
One of the issues I presented when I started counseling was feeling disconnected from God. I learned a lot about loving myself and staying away from negative self talk. I learned that I am loved by God and that my sins are forgiven in Christ. I am confident that there is nothing I can do to make God stop loving me. When I pray now, I can sense the Spirit of the Lord because I have released myself from condemnation. Also, I learned how to practice being more assertive rather that giving into my anger. I have become more aware of the thoughts that enter my mind and how to reject, question, and reframe them. I've realized feelings are not above the truth of God's word. Today, I am being more intentional and applying the strategies I learned by not letting negative thoughts fester or stew. Stephanie is very down to earth and easy to open up to. I like her practical advice and the resources she gives... And of course, I love the fact that this is Christ-based counseling.
