Mrs. Trudy Johnson

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist | LMFT, CCTS-1

My passion is to help the Body of Christ understand and believe their true Identity as a Child of the King. Past abuse and trauma interferes with the capacity to understand the transforming power of Jesus Christ and to live in a daily concept of God’s love for us. I enjoy walking beside my clients to watch them shed the lies and the impact of past trauma to come out on the other side with healing and health. Abuse and trauma are so common in the Body of Christ and we are trying to ‘act like’ nothing is wrong. Deep inside there is pain, suffering and loss of trust. I love the whole process from bondage to freedom, seeing God work whether in the heart of women or men and in marriages.

A’nesis Retreats Marriage Bootcamps are INTENSE! It is my belief that each person has been so traumatized by their marriage that they need personal healing first before they can even begin to put the marriage back together. As such, the typical bootcamp starts on Monday afternoon and ends Saturday at noon. There are six hours of individual work for each spouse, ending with twelve hours of marriage work.

The counseling for individuals is brief intensive therapy and lasts five days. You spend three hours a day with Trudy. In AZ, you stay at a nearby motel of which there are many to choose from, including a beautiful AZ resort and spa only five miles away.

Both marriage and individual intensives include unique Christian Mind-Body techniques called “EMET” (the Hebrew word for “truth”), or if needed Emotional Freedom Techniques or MEMI (Multi-directional Eye Movement Integration) a cutting-edge technique to resolve painful memories.

COSTS: Individual Intensives = $1940
Marriage Bootcamps = $4350
The marriage bootcamps and individual intensives can be provided online in most states. Clients receive a Federal Express packet of materials prior to their scheduled online intensive.

I believe the A’nesis Retreats and Counseling Sabbaticals are an “end-times” ministry. What is abundantly clear to me is that the Bride—the Bride that Jesus loves so much—is in crisis because of the dysfunction-ridden family systems so many have grown up in. The trauma of alcoholic family or origins, child molestation and sexual abuse, other abuse and lack of nurturing and teaching by parents has put so many wounds on His Bride that she is unable to “hear His voice” or receive that she is worthy of a love that He freely gives. Much of my wisdom stems from my own journey of healing, including the trauma techniques that were instrumental in my own healing.
