"Healing prayer has enabled me to work on some traumatic things from my past in a way that has given me deep insight and wisdom. I have never found anything, including conventional counseling,
that has brought me into a closer relationship with my Savior."
Healing Prayer is designed to help bring resolution to painful memories so people can walk
in the peace of Christ.
It gives them a safe place to tell their story and identify
the vulnerable emotions and the traumatic memories that led them to draw hurtful,
lie based conclusions about themselves or about God.
Healing Prayer invites the Jesus of the Bible to give them healing truth. You may benefit from Healing Prayer if...
You have trauma from childhood, like sexual molestation or other abuse, which still interferes with your life, your ability to maintain healthy relationships and your connection to God today.
You experienced severe trauma like a rape, a violent event or a combat mission gone bad that broke something in your spirit.
You’re in active Christian ministry – or you were until the spaghetti hit the fan – but experienced burnout or a church crisis that left you wounded. You want to experience God’s presence and not just serve Him but you struggle to overcome your bitterness toward people and your distance from God.
You experienced a devastating loss which includes tormenting thoughts and second-guessing and you need help sorting out the pieces and finding enough peace of mind to move into a season of “clean” grieving. You would like help to put your life back together into a new normal that includes hashing it out with God and finding His comforting presence while you grieve.
You may have been a Christian for a long time but you long for an intimate relationship with God and confidence in your prayer life but you feel blocked or afraid because something that happened put up a barrier in your mind.
You’ve worked hard to overcome the trauma you suffered and you have a lot of “head knowledge” about what needs to happen to recover, but it doesn’t penetrate to your heart and your emotions to give you peace of mind and a healthy release from the bondage of the past.
If you identified with any of these scenarios and you’d like to investigate the option of meeting with me for Healing Prayer, I’d be happy to discuss it with you. I work on a donation basis and we can discuss that up front, too. Sometimes I can be of most help referring you to counselors and resources in the San Diego area that specialize in your unique issues. And if we do decide to give it a try, I am happy to work in cooperation with your other therapists. I don’t assume I’m the best fit for everyone but by God’s grace I do seem to have a knack for helping people connect with Jesus because I live in His presence. Cool stuff happens when we bring Him into the picture.
This is what Jesus did for me and what I am called to do for others:
The Spirit of the Sovereign Lord is upon me, because the Lord has anointed me to preach good news to the poor. He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim freedom for the captives and release from darkness for the prisoners, to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor and the day of vengeance of our God, to comfort all who mourn, and provide for those who grieve in Zion – to bestow on them a crown of beauty instead of ashes, the oil of gladness instead of mourning, and a garment of praise instead of a spirit of despair. They will be called oaks of righteousness, a planting of the Lord for the display of His splendor.
"I have to admit, I was more than a little skeptical (and very scared) when I went for my first time of healing prayer with Didi. I had grown up knowing Jesus as my Lord and Savior. I don’t remember ever doubting His redemptive work on the cross or my need of a Savior as a child, young adult, or at any other stage of my life for that matter. But everything was not how it should be, and I came desperately in need of meeting “The Jesus I never knew.”
Throughout my life I had Scripture twisted and misused, used against me as a tool to show just how inadequate I was and just so very far below God’s standard of holiness that I really should be disgusted with myself...
Now, however, God had taken a hold of me and was doing something so very wonderful in my life. I would arrive at the prayer room to find Didi genuinely warm, inviting and pleased to see me. I often walked in to find her with Bible in hand obviously praying for me and giving herself over to the One who glowed on her countenance, asking Him to come and make Himself known. Despite my awkwardness and insecurity, Didi patiently taught me how to enter the presence of God and allow Him to touch the deepest, most painful traumatic experiences in my life...
Things had happened over the years that made me feel as though God was distant, rigid and an onlooker to my pain. I came to see and understand that I knew Him so little, that my concept of Him was so far from the truth. In tender times of prayer He has come and wrapped His arms around me, held me, and spoken so intimately to me that my heart melts at His sweet kindness. He showed me that those times I thought I was alone could not have been further from the truth...
Healing prayer has been an amazing gift from God in my journey to health and wholeness. As I look up after our sessions of prayer, I always find Didi smiling from ear to ear: “Wow, I just love watching Jesus at work. Don’t you!?”

"Where can I begin to describe my work with Didi? Her ministry grounded me during my deepest grief, gave me the gift of listening and surrendering to God and finding shelter in Him, and called me to an authentic search for how God will use me to reveal a unique aspect of His character. Each week, I am in awe of how Didi invites Jesus in and how His healing presence directs and changes me."
