"A good relationship is when someone accepts your past, supports your present, and encourages your future."
My name is Shardel 👋🏾
Welcome to The Lighthouse Perspective ✨
Let me tell you a little bit about myself!
🧠 Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist
♥️ Relationship Coach
📚 Dual Masters in Marriage & Family Therapy & Professional Counseling
🙌🏾 Believer of God
👩🏾❤️💋👨🏽Wife & Step Mom
I’m also a:
🌿Positive & Creative Thinker
🫂Non-Judgemental Support System
😝Fun person to interact with & be around
You may be asking, “Why is she in THIS space? What does SHE know?”
Both VERY valid questions!
I love having the ability to hold space for motivated individuals because, through my own life experiences and intentional educational path, I’ve learned how to navigate this relationship thing in order to help guide YOU through it!
✏️The relationships that you HAVE TO cultivate for a happy & healthy life are the ones:
➡️with others (family, friends, partner, coworkers, etc.)
➡️with God* (*If that is your belief system)
Throughout my life, I’ve had trials in all three relationships categories. I’ve experienced abandonment from friends & family, heartbreak, disappointment, and divorce. However, I figured out the best ways to reframe and recreate those relationships in the most aligned way for ME!
📌Truth is, it wasn’t all easy & it took time.
On the other side of that, I’ve been able to indulge in the joys of true love from an amazing Husband, exercise emotional insight & freedom, strengthen my personal relationship with God, and embrace a stress-free mindset for life!
🗣️So, here what I’m trying to say…
My friends are AMAZING, but their input wasn’t enough.
I didn’t have any help because I felt like no one understood what I needed to move forward.
I didn’t ask for help.
I didn’t know I needed help.
I didn’t get help.
I took the long route 😅
But, NOT YOU! 🏾
YOU took the detour & found me!
YOU don’t want to waste time!
YOU'RE READY for the next steps!
I’m here to guide you with compassion, empathy, honesty, understanding & LOTS OF LAUGHTER 😂
I’m ready when you are 🎉
