Interested in gaining tools to handle anxiety?


Join me for a 4 week online virtual workshop!

Join me and Karla Adkins, certified Life Coach,  on a 4 week journey exploring just exactly what anxiety is, how to recognize it, and tools to decrease the negative impact it has on your every day life! This workshop is a virtual workshop that also includes the option of 4 weekly personal coaching appointments.  The videos are taught by Jodi Dunphy, Licensed Professional Counselor and Karla Adkins, Certified Life Coach.  These videos will set you up to begin exploring anxiety and your body as well as tools to combat the impact stress can have on you. Your weekly coaching calls will bring a personalized touch, allowing you to have one-on-one time with certified life coach, Karla Adkins, owner of Lifepath Recovery Coaching. 

Welcome and thanks for stopping by!

Dr. John Townsend says, "A good therapist is able to help you by containing aspects of your self that you are unable to tolerate, unable to grieve or feel or experience, talk about, or even recognize in yourself. He or she is like a good parent who sends the message, 'I can deal with this black hole part of you. And my being able to deal with it and talk about it means that, in time, you’ll be able to deal with it, too'."

Maybe something has not happened in your life story you thought should have by now, or something happened too quickly or was too painful and you weren’t ready for it and you’re feeling lost. Or maybe you feel stuck, confused about the next move to make. This can make us feel out of place or like we don't belong. My hope is that we can join together to explore a different option, one that writes a better story... 

a redemptive story


The words written by the Great Counselor sum up my hope for those entering the counseling process: “Are you tired? Worn out? Burned out on religion? Come to me. Get away with me and you’ll recover your life. I’ll show you how to take a real rest. Walk with me and work with me—watch how I do it. Learn the unforced rhythms of grace. I won’t lay anything heavy or ill-fitting on you. Keep company with me and you’ll learn to live freely and lightly.”

I hope to see you soon,
