Mary Wagne - Boynton Beach, Florida
I worked with Stephanie for about 3 months and can honestly say I feel more alive now! I was scared of starting therapy at first but Steph really made it something I looked forward to. These counseling sessions opened a flood gate of information and emotions that before I tried to just bury and bottle up. During my sessions, I wasn't only just talking about my emotions but I really had to examine myself as a whole. I liked how Steph would not only listen but would also hold me accountable. There were times when it felt like chunks of weight had been dug out of myself and just thrown away. The weight has lifted out of my heart and it feels great! I have learned how to handle issues in a healthier manner that before would really bother me.
My relationship with God has also improved and I feel more connected. I always knew Jesus loved me but my heart didn’t grasp it completely. Now that it has, I lean to God more, and my life feels like it makes sense. I remind myself that God loves me every day. I don’t allow the enemy to bring me down like he did before. There will always be issues in life but I am committed to not "fall back" to old patterns. Today, I love myself better and have created necessary boundaries to protect myself and my family... And doing so has made me feel so much better. Things are falling into place and it’s amazing!
