We See You
We see you . . . we hear you. We have designed this online group to be affordable, trauma informed and crisis enlightened. For instance, we understand you all don’t have time to read a chapter in a book or watch a lengthy video. You are in survival mode . . . and we want to help.
Ladies, I wish I had had something like this when I was going through my own crises 12 years ago. I had left an abusive husband and came back home to the states with no money, no support and four small kids in tow. I felt utterly lost, confused and bereft of faith. The crises seemed endless and were on the daily. I felt like a burden to anyone who met me . . . I lost weight to the point of being emaciated . . . . I was alone and terrified. I cried every night.
I know what it feels like to cry in the shower, hoping my kids won’t hear me
I know what it feels like to believe that God has completely abandoned me
I know what it feels like to be shunned by my family
I know what it feels like to lose my church home and 99% of my friends
I know what it feels like to question my sanity
I know what it feels like to be afraid I won’t be able to feed my kids
After years of re-building, I am now a Pastoral Trauma Counselor, certified in trauma, crisis response and suicidality. It is my life's calling to come alongside other single mothers and bring them help and healing. Here is the information for our upcoming class:
*The class will be three women plus a clinician (either myself or one of the gifted women with whom I work). Each weekly class will be $30 per person. We ask for a $90 deposit or a signed form committing to the weekly get-together and cost. The reason we ask for this commitment is because our group classes bond quickly. If someone drops out of the class, it leaves us with a feeling of vulnerability and we question how safe we were to share our innermost thoughts. It is important to make a 12-week commitment. We then re-group after the 12 weeks and check in to see if you all want to make a second 12-week commitment.
*The group class will be 55 minutes long each week.
*For whomever would like to participate, we will open a Facebook Group that will be private. We will ask for complete confidentiality. You will watch a video (of me) and maybe have a podcast or a SHORT reading before we meet. You will be able to discuss whatever your present predicament is and we will be there to support you.
*We will chose the date and the time based on availability. Our plan is to begin the crisis groups as of December 1, 2022. I thought about waiting until after the holidays until I remembered how tense and stressful the holidays are for so many in crisis. I want us to be able to offer support through this rough time of year.
*This class is unique in that, we will have weekly topics of discussion (Crisis of Faith, Cognitive Dissonance, “The Why’s”, etc) but we will leave plenty of room for CURRENT CRISES as they come up.
*We will also be offering a monthly coaching call option for a minimal fee.
