Personal Statement

 

God radically transformed my life at the age of 14 during a time in my life when everything seemed to be falling apart.  Since that time, I have been on a journey to grow in my understanding of what it means to be a true follower of Christ.   My passion is to see people experience true change at the deepest levels.  I believe that all of us are in the process of becoming who God always intended for us to be.  I became a therapist because I am convinced that counseling can aid that process by helping us to work through the wounds and barriers that prevent us from growing. I consider it a sacred honor to walk alongside others as they do the hard work of moving forward and implementing change.  Counseling is a shared journey, one in which both parties are changed as God works in the most intimate areas of our hearts.  To be a part of this supernatural healing process is one of the greatest joys of my life.

 

Counseling Focus

 

Mentanna  works with couples, individuals and adolescents and has experience dealing with issues such as relational conflict, depression, anxiety, sexual identity confusion and past trauma.  She also has a heart to work in the field of missionary care, helping individual missionaries and missionary families deal with the stress of international living and re-entry.  Mentanna believes that spiritual formation and true inner transformation go hand in hand.
