About Paula Bruce

My Mission

I am a beautiful, honorable, powerful woman of light. My purpose is to teach and inspire others to shine their light. Thus, shifting the world one soul at a time.

A little about me...

I have been married to my best friend for over 20 years. Together we have two daughters who are strong, hilarious, and beautiful women. We also have an amazing son-in-law and two grandsons who I adore. They call me Grandma Purple!

I love my pets and consider them part of the family. I love to put on Metallica and ride my Harley as my own form of meditation. It is my way of making the rest of the world go away for a while. I also enjoy time with family, friends, traveling, and watching documentaries in my free time.

Where I started...

I became a substance use disorder counselor in 2008. Went back to school to get my bachelor’s and master’s degree and graduated in 2014 from Argosy University with a Master’s Degree in Marriage and Family Therapy.

I have been working in the field of therapy, trauma, and addiction for over 20 years. I have had various roles including administrative, psychiatric technician, case manager, substance abuse counselor, and therapist.

I have walked through my own journey of being completely lost to discovering my soul and my true essence. I began living with purpose and joy.

I won’t expect you to do anything I haven’t done myself!

I enjoy working directly with my clients whether that be in person or virtually through Zoom. I experience joy when others step out of the darkness and into their light. It is amazing to watch them and their world change as they grow.

I am passionate about helping others be who they truly are and to recognize their gifts.

I believe that “perspective is everything” and our thoughts and the way we look at things and the world create our reality. I also live by the belief that “nothing changes until I step out of my comfort zone and do something different.”
