    Here’s a little more about me, so you know who you’re working with….

    Do you dream of being closely connected to your partner? Me too! I can totally relate. 

    When I was 19, I married my first husband. I was starving for love & connection with someone. So, I handed my heart over to the first one who was willing to take it. Big mistake! The relationship was unhealthy & extremely dysfunctional right from the start.

    You see, when I was a child, my parents didn’t bother showing me what a healthy marriage was supposed to be. My father beat my mother repeatedly & he finally left to pursue an affair, along with drugs & alcohol. After he left, my mother was so depressed that she often left me in dangerous situations. Then when I was 8, an accidental drug overdose killed her. She was only 31 years old.

    So from that point forward, my abandonment issues damaged every relationship I had. I continued to involve myself in one dysfunctional relationship after another. I didn’t know what true love was. It seemed normal to me that my ex-husband was abusive, cold, and distant. That’s what I was used to.

    I understand the signs & red flags of an abusive marriage…

    In 2007, the unthinkable happened. I finally learned how dysfunctional my first marriage was & how dangerous my ex-husband was.

    After 15 years of marriage, I walked in on him molesting our daughter, who was 7 years old at the time. This totally devastated our family. Of course, I immediately took action & protected my daughter by calling the authorities.

    Her biological father was incarcerated for 10 years. He was charged with several counts of sexual assault on a minor. I filed for divorce soon after & then, my three children & I moved from the Big Island of Hawaii to North Alabama. We had to flee for our safety.

    The Road to Change….

    Once we gained a stable home, the real work began. God really protected us & provided for us. He made Himself bigger than all we went through. He led us to gifted therapists, mentors, & pastors.

    God helped me learn that I can’t heal what I don’t acknowledge, so I had to get real. The minute I surrendered to the help God gave us, our lives started to improve.

    The kids & I finally experienced some stability, peace, & healing.

    I had to admit my powerlessness to fix everything that went wrong. When I did that, God showed up Big time! I prayed every day & held on to my faith for dear life. I was diligent in asking Him to help me break those negative relational patterns.  And guess what? He did!

    I won’t lie, therapy was uncomfortable & painful. There were days I wanted to run out of the therapy office & just forget it all. The road was longer than I wanted it to be. But it was so worth it. Because now I’m living in victory. I overcame my dysfunctional relationship patterns & trauma.
