If you're seeking some peace,

you're in the right place.


Pain is not the end of your story. In fact, this make-or-break event can spur a journey that leaves you better, becoming more of the person you were created to be. Your spirit can find rest and refreshing from the pain of betrayal as you seek the point at which your voice becomes louder and God’s purpose for your life becomes clearer.

Mentoring gives you the tools to experience peace, (yes, peace!) even in the heavy stuff. Be heard and understood by someone who’s walked among the shadows only to come out on the other side


What I Offer

 

Individual Mentoring

One-on-one sessions, either in person or via online, give you the focus and priority you require to heal. In these sessions, my singular goal is to make you feel heard and understood when so few people can deeply relate to the road you’re walking. Like a mirror that reflects back details from your story that you may never be able to see yourself, I offer clarity and guidance for the future and spiritual direction through prayer, if so desired. In our sessions, we may delve into past and present traumas negatively impacting your relationships, process your reality and validate your experiences in a safe environment, help you establish healthy boundaries, and empower you to discover who you were created to be. Through it all, I’m your encourager, acknowledging how far you’ve come and pushing you always to press on.
Individual mentoring sessions start at $75 per session.

Support Groups

Recovery is a multi-faceted journey, and the professionals that point you towards hope and healing will speak to different areas of your life. Facilitator-led support groups are a vital experience when many women experiencing trauma lack emotionally safe relationships to process and disclose their experiences. Meet a safe community of like-hearted woman who will encourage and connect with you throughout your healing journey.

Frequently Asked Questions

Whether you’re ready to whisper your story or shout it out loud, a mentor supportively hears and understands (and will never call you crazy). A partner’s issues with sexual integrity often leave women emotionally and physically “stuck.” That’s why mentors take on your burden alongside you in individual sessions to identify the goals, actions and spiritual direction that will move you to redeemed wholeness. Their encouragement helps you to acknowledge even the smallest areas of progress in your life in order to help you press on along this long and weary journey. The tools you learn in individual sessions (coupled with the tools men can receive from my husband, Dan Andrew’s Redeemed Warriors Mentoring) can also be applied within relationships seeking healing and redemption.
Therapy is an integral part of the healing journey, especially when healing from trauma. It seeks to analyze behavior and delve into family-of-origin issues, helping you to figure out the “why” for the pain experienced in relationships. Trauma-informed mentoring paired with professional therapy can actually shorten the time it takes to heal, equipping you to recognize the “how”: identify the source of problems, devise goals, and take action in healthy ways.
The stories of women seeking healing are as diverse as the tools and therapeutic models available to treat them. That’s why I’m both a BraveHearts-certified and APSATS-trained (Association of Partners of Sex Addicts Trauma Specialists) mentor for women who have experienced sexual betrayal. I believe the path to wholeness is best achieved through an intimate relationship with Christ, and I offer biblical wisdom as a Board Certified Biblical Counselor and Board Certified Advanced Christian Life Coach through the American Association of Christian Counselors (AACC). For clients seeking to align their paths with the presence of God in their lives, I’ve completed a two-year training program in spiritual direction from the Transformational Listening Center of Chicago that equips me to offer clarity and vision through prayer. And while it’s my passion to offer a Christ-centered, holistic approach to mentoring women who have specifically experienced betrayal and sexual infidelity, I am equipped to also address underlying traumas within their lives, such as addiction recovery, divorce recovery, childhood sexual abuse, codependency, and trauma.
While the journey following sexual betrayal or infidelity is an undesirable prospect, it is a fact. Emotions and relationships in the wake of a shocking discovery require your attention, and it’s now your turn to act. When you choose to enter into active recovery, you’ll find parts of yourself — depths and strengths — that you never knew to be true. Our confidential, trust-based partnership is designed to acknowledge and validate your struggle, whatever your stage of healing, while empowering you to explore the possibility of a hopeful and restored future.
