Meet Rev. Maritza Sureda
Certified Life Coach and Addiction Recovery Coach
Member of AG Coaching Coalition
My passion is to partner with women to help them discover their potential and live an empowered life. Ministering to women at the Hillsborough County Jail in Tampa, FL, has been an honor for me. My heart aches when I hear stories of abuse. Many of these women have lost their identities. Truly, it is only God who can transform us. Growing up, I had a very distorted view of myself. For many years, I suffered from low self-esteem, self-sabotaging behaviors, and negative thought patterns. These issues prevented me from having a clear vision of God's purpose in my life. Coming from a dysfunctional family with generational issues and being the only girl out of four siblings, I learned to survive using destructive coping mechanisms. Which was my way of self-preservation. Once I had an encounter with Christ, I began to understand that I had many hurts and issues that needed to be dealt with. Our hurts and pain consume us, and we settle for less than God's best for us. God’s plan for us is to become whole, free of self-sabotaging behaviors, thoughts, and habits that hinder our walk. Are you ready for change?
