I've been in counseling at the Theodore Carl Dream Center with Jackie for only a little over seven months now. I have already come so much farther than I thought I could, and even much farther than all my past counseling put together times ten! I am in the midst of truly overcoming and working through my character defects that were ingrained in me throughout my childhood and adulthood. I am learning that my hurt, anger, and anxiety can be overcome by the methods I am using with Jackie. I absolutely and completely am noticing a huge difference in my thoughts, behavior, and responses to others; especially in my relationships at home. I am extremely excited for what the rest of my therapy holds and how much more I can fully change and finally become the healthy, happy person I have always knew I could be."
I have been counseling with Jackie for over a year now. I went from feeling there was no hope to go on with my life to having hope. I had been looking for a Christian counselor for years and years. I wanted one that would show me through the Bible what my life was for. I have a strong faith in God as my Savior and friend and Jackie opened up more doors to see how much God really loves me. Through working in her book and talking out what has happened in my life I found a lot of healing needs to be done. It's not an easy task to take on but its well worth the effort. Jackie is so understanding and caring. She never condemns you or condones what others have done to you. She is helping me to gain control over my feelings and how to see things through a different outlook. I have been to numerous counselors in my life and she is the first one that has made sense and actually helped me. I thank my Jesus for leading me to her. 😃🙏
We have been married 31 years and have lived more like brother and sister for 26 of those years. We were both married once before; and sadly, we brought our problems and our pain into our new relationship. We tried counseling with several other Christian counselors, including pastoral help, prior to being referred to the Dream Center. It just did not seem to help. We were feeling hopeless, and we were both hurting, and feeling alone. We finally received a referral to the Dream Center where quality time and help was given. Over time our marriage and relationship has improved. We are still growing and learning to love each other the way we should and to be passionate in our marriage. We hope to reach other married couples and give them hope through our testimony. God can and does work Miracles!
