Hear It From Me

ann maree goudzwaard


Hey! Welcome! I am the Executive Director of Help[H]er and I co-authored Help[H]er, A Churchwide Response for Women in Crisis. I have served as project manager and contributor for multiple biblical counseling training resources, including the Institute for Biblical Counseling and Discipleship’s Domestic Abuse Observation Series and for its joint project with Shepherd Press, Intro to Messy Care & Discipleship. In addition, I train counselors at Reformed Theological Seminary in Charlotte, Eternity Bible College, and PeaceWorks University and blog regularly for enCourage and the Biblical Counseling Coalition. I am a biblical counselor with an MDiv/counseling emphasis and a DMin candidate. I am married to Bob, the mother of three, and grandmother to thirteen grandchildren.

My goal is to enhance counseling competency and encourage greater awareness of the difficulties women encounter, helping to provide both men and women with great resources in order to better provide one-another care.
