People have asked me over the years, “What’s your story?” “What’s the reason behind your passion?” “Why you?” I often think to myself, ‘Why not me?’ ‘Why wouldn’t I do this work?’ Why wouldn’t someone who has spent almost half of her life facilitating change, growth , and healing for individuals, families, and groups be the person to continue to transform lives around the world? Simply put: I do this work because it’s what I was put here to do.
As a professional counselor who has spent almost 20 years facilitating healing for others, I have been honored to “peek behind the curtain” of my clients’ lives to listen to the stories of the moments and memories that caused fear, guilt, shame, and unworthiness. I have also had the honor to journey with my clients as they work through life’s hurts and disappointments towards self-acceptance, self-love, truth, happiness, vulnerability, and a sense that despite it all, their life matters. When you do this work for as long as I have, believe me you come to develop a way of understanding the world and the people in it that is unique and multidimensional. What I have learned along the way is this: we repeat what we don’t repair. Let me say it again, WE REPEAT WHAT WE DON’T REPAIR! My professional journey is about helping clients break unhealthy cycles--repeated patterns of thinking, feeling, and doing that get in the way of their ability to be well and whole.
But this journey of transformation hasn’t just been about my clients it’s also been about transforming myself. You see, my journey includes many of the same struggles as my clients: family issues, disappointment, hurt, trauma...cycles. Through much prayer, contemplation, and counseling I began to learn how to accept and honor my own truth, be vulnerable, love myself, put me first, and let go of people, places, and things that no longer grow me. I learned how to become the author of my own story. Truth is, we are all born into the middle of somebody else’s story. But at some point, you get to decide how your story will be written. My goal is to inform and inspire you to not only think about what it means to you to live well but also ignite you to take the steps to BE WELL. You deserve to have your story reflect the life you choose. Let’s journey together...
"Dr. Wilborn is not only a complete professional, she's a true delight to work with. She's clearly devoted to her career and clients, and it shows in the way she interacted with attendees at the HuffPost Parents Conference this past week. Dr. Wilborn is incredibly knowledgeable and considerate, and is able to break down her thoughts and guidance into tangible ways parents and caregivers can affect change in those in their care. I wouldn't hesitate to ask Dr. Wilborn to participate in our events in the future."
"Dr. Wilborn is powerful and wise."
