    Trauma Therapy

    You’ve tried different ways to work on yourself and maybe with your partner and it seems like you are getting nowhere. You are getting discouraged with no end in sight. Frustration and hopelessness are increasing. You are worried that this may be the end of your relationship and you are constantly worried and thinking What if I can’t fix this? What if I waited too long? What if we are not able to fix this? What if we are not compatible? What if we need to go our separate ways? What about the children? And you are finding yourself on a hamster wheel with no answers and you are anxiously worried, scared, ashamed, alone, and lost

    And you know that if you don’t take action, things will just get worse. Your anxiety and emotional overwhelm seem to interrupt your day-to-day functions

    Feeling stuck can be hopeless, but with the right help, you can start getting better.

    I CAN HELP, You are in the right place

    I know how hard and hopeless this struggle can be. I have dedicated my life to helping people get unstuck and help couples work together and find hope again

    I also, know how hard it is to reach out and get started. I promise to do everything possible to make things easy for you.

    I am glad you are here and I want you to know that things can start getting better today.


    Found Me Again – Aug. 2017

    I’m so grateful to Forerunner Counseling for helping me learn to forgive, accept, and love. I was at a breaking point in my relationship with my fiance, daily challenges with my teenager, and an overall hopeless feeling. Every book and audio recommendation spoke to my heart and helped me find the road to healing. I’m grateful for the new relationship I have with my fiance and daughter. I now see myself and the world around me without the broken lens I was looking through before. I’m grateful for the healing I didn’t even realize I needed until Forerunner Counseling showed me what’s possible.

    My Marriage was restored – May 2023

    What an incredible experience my husband and I have had with Damalie. We have seen Damalie since early 2019 and we both have been transformed through her guidance! The skills we have learned have helped us navigate so many challenges in our marriage and our bond has gotten stronger. I know that without her help, we would not be together today. We are so grateful to have her help through therapy and will continue to seek guidance when we find ourselves in a sticky spot. The guidance we get from Damalie is priceless!

    Overcame Fears – 21 Feb. 2018

    I appreciate the perspective the Forerunner Counseling has given me. I had become stuck and was afraid to move forward in life and take risks. Damalie asked the right questions and helped me to gain perspective, courage, and boldness about making my own decisions and owning my story. Ive experienced real freedom that comes with knowing that I have permission to fully be who God made me to be.

    Confidence Grew – Apr. 2018

    I have grown tremendously with confidence as a result of forerunner counseling. Yes, I do know that there is liberty in the Lord but having a clear understanding of what it means could be challenging, for me forerunner helped me to gain this insightful journey. I have learned to understand who I am and express my voice to be heard without feeling less about myself. It’s a tool I have received for a lifetime and I cherish every tool and perspective I have learned from forerunner counseling sessions. I am so grateful and now more confident to approach relationships without assumptions.

    My Marriage and Personal Life changed – May 2023

    Where do I start? Damalie is amazing. From her spiritual guidance (If you request it) to her down-to-earth demeanor, she is so well-rounded as a counselor. She allows you to express yourself and express your point of view all while still holding you accountable. Damalie pushes you to “DO THE WORK” and with her guidance and doing the work, the results are amazing. Damalie is truly God-sent.

    Got Unstuck – January 2023

    Damalie is really intelligent, genuinely caring, and knows her stuff to help you well. She goes out of her way to make sure you are doing well mentally and emotionally. I saw her on Jan 7th, 2023 and I was able to address my issue immediately. I plan on seeing her more consistently. I highly recommend her

    Found Stability – November 2022

    I’ve been working with Damalie for about five years now and she has been an extremely influential person in my life. When we first started working together I was living wildly in my mid-twenties and had habits that were affecting my mental and physical well-being. As time progressed and I started to work through the homework I was given, I started to grow. Looking back I’m so grateful for the time she’s spent with me and the person I continue to become.

    Damalie has been with me through many ups and downs in my life and always seems to know exactly what I need. I highly recommend working with her if you are uncovering parts of you that are holding you back from the person you know you can be.

    Grew Through My Traumas

    I have experienced a significant amount of growth going to counseling sessions. It has been one of the hardest experiences: letting go of pain, doubt, and self-sabotaging but one of the most rewarding.

    Learning to forgive. identify things, and not allow them to take root in my heart. Is not only receiving counseling but learning skills on how to face obstacles in everyday life. I never knew how many layers are left after a traumatic experience, she ripples right in one soul until you sit and deal with the aftermath. The process is not easy but you never feel alone or judged. Instead, you are spoken to with the truth and at a pace that you can take for your journey.

    I would highly recommend anyone to invest in themselves and book a session. There is freedom in healing and personal growth in being able to move forward.

    My Marriage was repaired

    Damalie is amazing and a Godsend! She is insightful and honest and seriously one of the best counselors I have been to. She is excellent at helping couples reconnect and repair their relationships. Although it is not always easy to take a good look at yourself and evaluate yourself, it is such a benefit to unpack all those pent-up feelings to release them and actually heal from the trauma. I recommend Forerunner Counseling 10000%
