SoulCare Pastoral Counseling

"AND DO NOT BE CONFORMED TO THIS WORLD, BUT BE TRANSFORMED BY THE RENEWING OF YOUR MIND, SO THAT YOU MAY PROVE WHAT THE WILL OF GOD IS, THAT WHICH IS GOOD AND ACCEPTABLE AND PERFECT."

ROMANS 12:2

We all have something in our lives we wish was different but which we feel powerless to change. Maybe it's a situation, a relationship, or a besetting behavior or sin that we just can't seem to overcome no matter what we do. We're left frustrated, defeated and maybe even bitter and hopeless about our inability to change and it causes great pain that affects every area of our lives.

But in Romans 12:2 God has given us the secret to real, lasting tranformation: We have to change our minds.

What You Get With SoulCare Pastoral Counseling

We all want a good life that is full of freedom, healing, health, hope, joy, peace, prosperity and fulfilling relationships. We want abundant life.

But many of us do not experience it.

SoulCare Pastoral Counseling is for any Christian woman who feels stuck and defeated in her life. Perhaps you're struggling in your marriage or another important relationship. Or maybe you've experienced a deep loss, betrayal or trauma. Or perhaps you're struggling in your faith or experiencing a health issue. Maybe you just want deeper spiritual growth and a closer relationship with God. Whatever it is, pastoral counseling can help you grow, heal, transform and experience the abundant life Jesus promised his followers.


YOU GET SPIRITUAL AND SOULICAL HEALING

"And He said, 'If you will give earnest heed to the voice of the Lord your God, and do what is right in His sight, and give ear to His commandments, and keep all His statutes, I will put none of the diseases on you which I have put on the Egyptians; for I, the Lord, am your healer.'" Exodus 15:26  

The Word of God is clear that God is our healer and desires to heal us. Healing is God's promise to his children and what Jesus died to give us (Isaiah 53:5). But it's conditional and the condition is that we willingly and intentionally enter into God's ways (John 15:5). This is the process of learning how to abide in God, depend on him for everything, and live the way he wants us to live.  

SoulCare teaches you how to enter into God's ways so you can learn how to abide with him every day and receive his blessing of healing.


YOU GET FREEDOM  

"So if the Son makes you free, you will be free indeed." John 8:36  

When you placed your faith in Jesus he set you free from the stress, worry, anxiety, unhealthy habits, and destructive thoughts, emotions and behaviors that are the root causes of defeated living. Freedom, health and abundant life are already yours but you need to learn how to walk in that freedom before you can experience health and abundance in your daily life.  

SoulCare teaches you how to walk in the freedom that is already yours in Christ so you can experience abundance in your health and your life. 


YOU GROW CLOSER TO GOD  

"How precious are your thoughts to me, O God! How vast is the sum of them! If I should count them, they would outnumber the sand." Psalms 139: 17-18  

In Christ, you are God's adored, cherished child, whom he wants to share his life and love with. He thinks countless loving and delightful thoughts about you. He wants more than anything to be close to you and bless you with healing, health and abundance.  

SoulCare will help you draw closer to God and actually experience the depths of his personal love for you as well as the peace and healing that come from knowing your true identity and inheritance as the apple of your Papa's eye. 


YOU GET VICTORY & HOPE  

"Hope deferred makes the heart sick, but desire fulfilled is a tree of life." Proverbs 13:12  

A long-standing unsuccessful battle with overweight and poor health is hope deferred which actually contributes even more to physical, mental and emotional sickness. Victory, on the other hand, brings vibrant life.  

SoulCare will help you win victory in your current life challenges and give you hope for victory in every other battle you may face in life.


YOU GET ENCOURAGEMENT & SUPPORT  

"Therefore, encourage one another and build up one another, just as you also are doing." 1 Thessalonians 5:11  

God never intended us to walk through life alone, especially in our struggles. Battles are won with battalions, not single soldiers. You need support, encouragement and accountability to win your battle and transform into the new creation you already are in Christ.  

SoulCare is you + the Holy Spirit + us. You're never alone in your journey and can count on us to lovingly encourage you and build you up as you learn how to live abundantly in God's love and grace.


YOU GET ABUNDANT LIFE!  

Pastoral Counseling

"Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creature; the old things have passed away; behold, the new things have come." 2 Corinthians 5:17 

Scripture is clear that when you placed your faith in Christ something happened: something old died and something new came to life.

Pastoral counseling is spiritual formation and discipleship. It is the process where we explore that exchange of your old life for the new life you now live in Christ and what that exchange means for the quality of your life right here, right now.

Pastoral counseling helps you understand and renew your mind around the richness of your new identity, new inheritance and new destiny as God's beloved child.

We explore subjects in God's Word, such as:

Human Composition & Needs False Beliefs vs Truth Emotions Exchanged Life Sanctification Flesh vs Spirit Concepts of God Law vs Grace Suffering & Brokenness Forgiveness Abiding

And others....

If abundant life is a gift from God then abundant living is a mind and skillset you must learn and practice in order to experience that abundant life. Pastoral counseling teaches you the God-focused mindset and skills of living abundantly so you can experience the abundant life that is yours in Christ.

Leslie Strovas, DNM(c), FN, PC

About two weeks into root-cause medicine practice back in 2011, upon hearing a tragic story involving murder, grief, loss, transiency and abuse from a very young age, Leslie recognized that this dear patient's life experiences were manifesting in very clear destructive ways in her body. She realized that there was much, much more to health than just a correctly functioning body. She could balance hormones, fix cells, douse inflammation, detox and change lifestyle habits for her patients, but until she addressed the soulical (mind, emotions, behaviors) and spiritual aspects of disease, her patients would not fully heal and get their health back.  

Today she practices holistic medicine that addresses the physical, soulical and spiritual root causes of disease. Her method brings healing to the whole person through Christian spiritual formation and discipleship, Christ-centered pastoral counseling and renewing of the mind, and root-cause medicine.  

All Things New Health & Wellness is the call of God upon her life and she can't imagine any greater honor or joy than serving her sisters in Christ in this healing, life-giving ministry.  

She is also wife to Joseph, mom to three amazing grown and flown kids, and "mémé" to five beloved and cossetted grandkids. She loves being outside in nature, travel, ballet, singing, gardening, cooking and knitting.
