Podcast: The Crucible, Finding Power in Pain, Rejecting Shame and Suffering.

Updated: Apr 22, 2022

The crucibles Andrea endured made her question both her faith and the therapy her parents underwent to try, unsuccessfully, to improve their family life. It wasn't until she embraced her relationship with God that she took the journey to become a therapist herself—and today she helps clients realize their pain can be the source of their greatest power. The key, she has discovered through her counseling practice is focusing on what you treasure because in pursuing and embracing those things you will find your purpose and calling while avoiding shame and suffering.

Andrea has spent her career studying the human experience and has developed a fascinating analogy that compares cuckoo birds, nature’s master manipulator and imposter, to situations and relationships that leave us feeling drained, confused, lost, and empty. Her new book, The Cuckoo Syndrome, helps us fend off the cuckoos, the unhealthy relationships, toxic thinking, and self-sabotaging behaviors in our life that never truly satisfy the deep longings of our souls and the desires of our hearts. 

Andrea’s clinically proven, innovative method helps us recover the lost pieces of ourselves, discover meaning in suffering, and transform our pain into purpose by teaching us to uncover the truth of who we are and who God is so we can be healed and live free. 

Purchase the book Andrea’s clients call “a life-changing breakthrough” for yourself and the people you care about today.
