About Tawnya

My name is Tawnya Kordenbrock. I am a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor and the director of A Renewed Life Counseling.

I became a counselor because of the growth I experienced from therapy when I was in my 30s. I had been experiencing panic attacks and constant anxiety but didn’t know why.

Through extensive prayer with close friends and the caring work of a Christian counselor, I realized the extent to which childhood trauma was affecting my adult life. Over the next year, I received extensive healing to my sense of self.

Since then I have been on a quest to undo what I learned as a child of an abusive alcoholic father. This has changed how I view myself and those around me.

While I consider myself to be still growing, I have come a long way due to learning about dysfunctional behaviors and practicing more functional ones. What has influenced me most, however, is the presence of the Holy Spirit in my life. The healing affect of knowing God’s love cannot be overemphasized. His love has come through fellow believers, the Bible, and his Spirit revealing his presence to me.

“You make a difference in lives. You are such a great listener and compassionate person. You show and live your faith. That is quite a package!” – MW, (former client)
