About Trudy

Trudy JohnsonWorking with many women through brief intensive therapy, Trudy began to understand the extent of brokenness among pastors’ wives and women in ministry and Christian women in general. Many of her clients lost their faith, their values and even their passion for serving Christ.  She believes this is caused by the isolation that women in ministry experience. Also, she finds many Christian women have many unresolved issues of woundedness and trauma from their past.

The uniqueness of this program is due to Trudy’s combination of Biblical knowledge, receptivity to the Holy Spirit, and her professional training in the area of women’s issues and trauma.

Trudy holds a Masters’ Degree in Biblical Counseling from Trinity Seminary and a Master’s Degree in Marriage and Family Therapy from Denver Family Therapy Institute.  She has various educational pieces of training to help clients recover from trauma.

In addition, Trudy holds certificates in chaplaincy and in Formational Prayer. Prior to her six years as a therapist at Crossroads Counseling of the Rockies, Trudy reached out to women 11+ years at Focus on the Family in the Pregnancy Resource Ministry. Trudy is also an adjunct professor at Master’s International School of Divinity in Evansville, Indiana and is a speaker for Ambassadors’ Speakers Bureau.  From 2011-2015 she was the on-sight counselor for guests of Sanctuary, a Christian retreat center.
