To love someone is not first of all to do things for them, but to reveal to them their beauty and value, to say to them through our attitude: ‘You are beautiful. You are important. I trust you. You can trust yourself.” —Jean Vanier
In this episode, I continue my interviews with members of my membership community, Trauma Therapist | 2.0, and speak with Jessica Culp.
Jessica is a graduate student at Lincoln Christian University in Lincoln, Illinois. As part of the University’s Seminary program, she hopes to achieve her Masters in Arts Counseling Degree in 2018.
Jessica has been listening to the Trauma Therapist Podcast since she began her studies in counseling in September of 2015, and joined Trauma Therapist 2.0 in December 2016.
What I love about this interview, the way Jessica describes tells her story of how she got into the field, and more specifically, the way she came to work with individuals who’ve experienced trauma.
This will be Jessica’s second career, after receiving her Bachelor’s degree in Communications in 2003 and working in the marketing and resource development field for three local nonprofit organizations that included a foodbank, a children’s home and a crisis nursery.
Trauma Therapist | 2.0 was created for people just like Jessica–passionate, eager to learn, and compassionate about helping those who’ve been impacted by trauma.
