Cultivating hope through genuine connection! Front Porch is an innovative group of counselors who have a special focus that includes raising self-awareness in their clients.

[04/05/20]   Looking to have a married couples retreat. Going to go for a late August date. Seeking feedback: Would you be willing to attend a 1.5 day event that would include all meals, room for the night and all materials at a cost of $399? The first one would be limited to 5 couples. Thoughts about cost, length and what material do you think would be helpful to share with couples.


We all know marriage is hard work. But it’s more than that: it’s teaming up to parent, make big decisions (financial and otherwise), complete projects, and do ALL of life … together. Sometimes, it can be conflict and isolation. So how do you get back to those feelings of hope and partnership you had when you said, “I do”? Right now, you sign up to join me—and 29 experts—for Marriage Mastery: Transforming Conflict into Connection and Avoidance into Intimacy. It’s a FREE interview series where we’re sharing our practical advice for achieving a fulfilling, enriching, fun, intimate marriage you LOVE. Sign up here to join us starting 3/14. (Link in bio as well.)

[05/03/17]   So after a year of being out of school, I have faced my fears and picked up another book. Pray for me😄. The book is titled "Becoming naturally therapeutic" by Jacquelyn Small. It was a gift from a fellow counselor at my part time gig working with recovering addicts. I have only read the intro, but I think this will be a good read. "Becoming naturally therapeutic is based on the universal law of love. And this law is totally transforming; it is the driving force behind our essence. Love is truth. And when truth happens between two people, there is a noticeable exchange of energy. In other words, the human self is an instrument designed specifically to concretize the law of love in the world. And this universal law can operate only within the context of relationship-otherwise it remains abstract, formless concept, non-existent".
Genuine (truthful and loving) connection is critical! Come on down to the porch and let's test this and cultivate hope in your world!


What about me? The last of 3 connection points that we focus on at Front Porch. If we can co-create a safe and sacred place for you, come on down and let's chat.


Genuinely connecting to others.

Some good work is happening at the Front Porch. Sure we got a snazzy space, some solid counselors and coaches, but the real work is happening as our co-laborers (clients) are creating genuine connection. They are connecting to God, themselves and others. As we work together in this safe place free of shame and judgement, people are getting closer and closer to capturing hope. This hope is leading to freedom.
Are you feeling stuck? Is hope gone or maybe even dead to you? Do your options seem small or non-existent? Come and hang out at the Porch. We can't promise results but we can co-labor with you to create a fertile soil where hope can grow! Genuine connection is one call away. Let's do this! Let's walk in the freedom that's YOURS! 02/18/2017
