 ‘Healing Your Heart for True Intimacy’ intensive

Has your heart and identity been crushed because of unhealthy intimacy? Have you felt overwhelmed due to sexual wounding (betrayal from spousal pornography usage, shut down from past abuse trauma, struggles in intimacy due to distance and distorted views)? Have no fear. Even if you felt isolated and unable to get the help you wanted in the past, a new hope is here to restore you.

Breathe in deeply. Peace and clarity is on the way.

In working with me, you will know exactly what to do in your everyday life to keep your heart (thoughts and feelings) whole and without fear, so you can choose love that is meaningful for you, right where you are.

In the “Healing Your Heart for True Intimacy” intensive program you’ll focus candidly on sexual intimacy topics to address the hurt, frustration, anger, and confusion that comes from these highly personal issues. We will seek God’s restoration by considering:

  • Blocks to Intimacy Questionnaire (in depth issues)

  • Guide you in prayer, inviting God's hope, healing and a new outlook
