The ministry and coaching under Stephanie Holmes seek to bring restoration and spiritual renewal to troubled lives. The mission is to offer affordable Christian services to those in need and to glorify God in all that transpires during the process. The foundation upon which her eclectic use of various skills is based is on that of cognitive-behavioral theory through over 25 years of counseling, conflict resolution, and now coaching. The cognitive-behavioral premise is that how one thinks affects one’s behavioral choices. The techniques used focus on monitoring and identifying irrational thought patterns and habits and changing subsequent behaviors with the power given to us through the Holy Spirit.
At Autism Spectrum Resources for Marriage & Family, LLC, our desire is for people to walk in freedom and overcome whatever may be in the past or what is going on in this present. The message we teach is one of hope and freedom and overcoming through the power of Jesus Christ. There is no exclusion clause in Jeremiah 29:11!
In His Service,
Rev. Stephanie C. Holmes, EdD, MA
