Sophia Paul - Lantana, Florida
When I initially started my sessions with Stephanie I was in a very wounded place. I wanted a therapist I could be transparent with and trust. The last therapist I had at the age of 6 broke my trust, so I was in some way hesitant to find a therapist but I knew I really needed one. I was battling with pain and hurt from my mother’s death that I never fully healed from. I experienced moments of being disassociated from those around me and extreme withdrawals. Furthermore, I experienced church hurt, depression, insecurity, and did not really know who I was. I was experiencing an identity crisis. I am grateful for the counseling and therapy Stephanie provided me. Never did I feel judged during our sessions.
I am now in a better place and have recovered and healed from the loss of my mother. My perception of myself has changed. Throughout the sessions, I discovered that there were many other hidden issues. I had been holding on to a lot of pain, hurt, and disappointment, all of which turned into bitterness, unforgiveness, and resentment. I am now in a place where I have unconditional love for the individuals who hurt me.
Not only did God use Stephanie to address the issues I dealt with but also to provide restoration. Today my Heavenly Father and I have a better relationship and that continues growing. Generational curses have been revealed and dealt with also. I'm a lot more pleasant and happy, even my friends have noticed. I am very grateful to have worked with Stephanie.
