Cassey St.Rose LPC
I am a licensed professional counselor (LPC) in Fairbanks, Alaska and a U.S. Army Veteran. I have a masters degree in community counseling from the University of Alaska Fairbanks. Myself along with my husband, and five children have lived in Fairbanks since 2001. When opening Healing House Counseling of Fairbanks, it was our desire to offer a safe place of healing for survivors of sexual abuse and trauma. With Sexual abuse and trauma, comes many problematic issues such as anxiety, depression, anger, self destructive behaviors, codependency, substance abuse and troubled relationships. Issues that can be addressed in counseling. I believe healing is possible and change is possible. You are not alone and there is hope. I want to help encourage you and come alongside you on your healing journey.
It was just one little lie, what’s the big deal. It’s just a little white lie. I have heard this more than once during a counseling session and even in everyday conversations. If I’m being honest, I’ve said this myself.
Every fast has been a different experience for me, but God has never failed to honor the sacrifice. He has blessed me every time exactly with what I needed when I needed it.
The longer I am married the more I learn about it. The younger me thought marriage was living together, sharing responsibilities, and being romantically involved. I gave little to no thought about what it means to be spiritually connected.
The enemy of our faith uses our secrets to wreak havoc on our peace. Once you confess (talk about it), you take the power away from the enemy.
Being a parent is hard work, but it’s worth it. If we are willing, our kiddos can teach us so much about what it means to connect with them and the world around us.
Many of us have made New Year’s resolutions. We’ve possibly said it’s a new year and a new me. Or, we’ve resolved to lose weight, get in shape, eat healthier, or save money and statistics show that by February most have quit and resorted back to unhealthy habits.
Our kiddos can teach us so much if we slow down and allow them to. When we let go of the need to control the situation or the outcome we become open to possibilities of childlike wonder, breaking out in song-just because, and noticing God’s creation in such a beautiful way.
Somewhere and at some point, it became standard operating procedure for women to put others before herself.
