I’m Bonnie Ronstrom, a certified life coach, victim’s advocate, and pastoral counselor. My own journey and healing process drives my passion for providing supportive recovery and prevention services to individuals and organizations as they overcome the profound effects of emotional, spiritual, and narcissistic abuse.

I’m a married mom with three grown children and two dogs. I enjoy walking with friends, going on nature-filled road trips with my family and paddleboarding.

Focus Areas:

  • Healthy Relationships
  • Emotional & Narcissistic Abuse Recovery 
  • Consulting for Individuals, Churches, and Ministries Supporting Survivors. 
  • Prevention & Recovery Services for Churches and Christian Ministries Impacted by Narcissism.
  • Spiritual Abuse Recovery
  • Christian Survivors of Mind Control Programming, Targeting, & SRA

Specialties: As needed or requested, I can incorporate the following:

To benefit my clients and respect their investment in healing, I consistently devote time and resources toward personal growth and increasing my effectiveness by networking with others, taking courses, self-care, consistently meeting with my own counselor, and staying up to date on the wide variety of useful and supportive resources in the prevention and recovery process.
