Lifelong healing from addiction comes from a renewing of your mind. From her experience as a college professor, Heather Kolb offers her expertise in the areas of neurochemistry, brain development, and trauma, helping individuals understand the physiology and environmental factors that influence addictive behavior.
During the dissolution of her first marriage, Heather developed an eating disorder that almost destroyed her life. She thought she could control her addiction, but was terribly wrong. Through 20 months of intensive counseling, she discovered the lies that perpetuated her addiction and the truth that set her free.
Today, as a speaker, author of Digital Natives, and editor for Pure Desire, Heather believes that true healing comes through an awareness of the behaviors that keep people trapped in their addiction: understanding that neural pathways in their brain reinforce their behaviors. Restructuring those neural pathways is key to finding freedom.
Heather is an advocate for the uniqueness of Pure Desire—that it offers a perspective of science and statistical data that is laid over a foundation of biblical truth. She is passionate about helping others find freedom through education, knowledge, and grace. Heather’s teaching is engaging, reflecting a heart for hope and transformation.
