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.
I remember reading this as a new Christian and thinking yeah maybe if you had parents that were honorable, but what if they were/are not honorable. What if you had parents that abused you, neglected you, or abandoned you?
I found myself wanting to love my husband and others well, but it seemed impossible to not keep track of wrongs. The keeping track was not intentional, but the wrongs left a mark that left me with caution. If my husband said something hurtful to me, regardless of his intention, I would be cautious about the way I interacted with him in the future especially around the topic or situation which I felt hurt over
If we don’t know what love is how are we going to determine if we are being loved and if we are loving others? In these scriptures we see where God has set some boundaries in place so we can distinguish between what love is and is not.
Every story I hear impacts me. The story of the woman who grew up in a wealthy home with a loving mother and father and good education impacted me as much as the story of the woman who experienced great physical and emotional abuse as a child
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.
