The ADAA reports that anxiety and depression alone affect 40 million adults in the U.S. This is a problem when we factor in the affects for someone living with them- isolation, confusion, frustration, fear, anger, pain, and the list only grows and goes on the longer we deal with them. Because that's just it, we are dealing with them until we get the right help for them. We can spend years in a counselor’s office only to find that we are still struggling. We can quote scripture over and over and do our best to take our thoughts captive, only to find we are failing at that too. What is wrong with us that we can't just stop being anxious, fearful, depressed?

On February 7, Named Free Ministries is bringing in a therapist who specializes in trauma. April Nelson is a "Trauma-Informed" Therapist, Certified in EMDR Therapy (Treatment for Trauma). She has successfully worked through trauma with numerous individuals. Named Free recognizes the importance of God's word and mental health. We recognize that, when it comes to fear and anxiety, it's not always about quoting scripture but a rewiring of the brain due to trauma that needs to be addressed before we consider any other way. Luke 10:27 says, "Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind." At Named Free, we want you to have a fighting chance to love the Lord with all of your mind because he created us to. It's talking about how trauma affects our mind to begin to free us up from the fear, anxiety, and depression that we've thought "is just who we are."

Other details:

  • April will be there to educate us on how trauma impacts our brain. She will not be there to diagnose or treat but she will be there as a resource only.

  • Maria Bowersock, from Named Free Ministries, will be sharing some of her personal story with you in conjunction with April. Maria has been a client of April's, so this will provide you with a first-hand look into how trauma affects us and also the steps to healing the mind.

  • We will also have a brief time for an open forum discussion where Maria and April can answer questions.
