hello & welcome
Do you ever feel like you are waking up in the middle of a situation and
cannot figure out how you got there or how to go forward? Sometimes it seems like we are at the mercy of our life's circumstances without support
or a clear sense of direction. I am Dawn Richa, founder of encompass ministries and I have been there – seeking answers in the same narrow
worn-out places, all the while missing the bigger picture of who I was and
who God created me to be. Learning to be intentional about expanding our field of vision can open our eyes to see the same issues with fresh
perspective. I am so glad you are here and would love to partner with you
to explore a broader view of possibilities for your life.
encompass [en-kuhm-puhs] to form a circle about; to include or surround
The encompass logo is a reminder that we are encircled by the love of God and embraced in every aspect of our lives, even the areas we hide from our own awareness or deem off limits to God. It is from this sense of being upheld and supported that we can begin to truly and actively participate in our ongoing, lifelong, growth and transformation. The offerings of encompass ministries are crafted to give you conversation partners, support, and practical tools to expand your awareness of yourself, God and others, and to begin to live fully as your authentic self.
Dawn's approach to counseling is grounded in kindness, woven with compassion, and wrapped in grace. She has brought a sense of peace and comfort to my life by listening and providing a simple guidance that has helped shift my awareness across all of my relationships, including the relationship with myself. I cannot recommend her enough, and am thankful to have found her! -D.T.
Dawn has helped me work thorough one of the most challenging seasons of my life. I am so thankful for her calming presence and gentle guidance and support through periods of grief, anxiety, personal achievement and growth. -M.M.
