Welcome To Close Connections
Hi, I'm Jasmine McEwen.
Licensed Therapist & Mental Health Coach
Once I realized the power that comes along with changing your mindset, I knew I was required to share this gift with others.
For years my mindset was to focus on what I lacked, instead of focusing on what I could gain. I fought hard to express and validate my illnesses and wounds to everyone I came across, instead of fighting hard for my wellness and recovery.
When I finally stopped to look at the impact that my actions had on myself and those around me I knew that I had to make a change.
Our thoughts about ourselves and the world we live in can be the difference between a life of poverty, lack, & despair, and a life of wealth, abundance, and joy.
As a Christian, I believe that helping others learn to control their thoughts and change their lives for the better is my God-given purpose.

From Hurt To Harmony: A Journey To Physical Intimacy
"Mapping out my parts, and learning how to manage all the emotions I've been disconnected from has really helped me regain trust in myself."
"For years I just thought I was a person who was unable to experience joy. Challenging this belief and changing my mindset has changed my life for the better."
Sexual Abuse & Trauma
"Now when I think about being abused I no longer feel physical or emotional pain. I pity the people who hurt me, and I no longer believe their actions are my fault".
