Belinda Thrift
​Belinda grew up believing a lie: “Those who seek counseling are weak or crazy.”  During her 40’s, after her life became unmanageable, she finally turned to a trained professional counselor who helped her explore ways in which her past continued to affect her present, and learn healthier ways of relating. The difference this made in her well-being, coupled with her compassionate heart, compelled her to become a counselor and offer that hope of healing to others (2 Corinthians 1: 3-4).

Dawn Benjamin
Dawn recognizes that many folks become overwhelmed and exhausted in the pursuit of fulfillment, happiness and discovery of God’s ultimate best for them. They give up and settle into the everyday busyness of life while feeling stuck; never quite getting to the place of enjoying life. In this deep, dark place of their soul they cry out: “There has to be more to life than this!” Dawn wants to remind you that God desires for all of us to experience life and life more abundantly.
