Meet Dr. Estrelita Bruce of A NEW ME: Transparently, Abundantly

Today we’d like to introduce you to Dr. Estrelita Bruce.

Dr. Bruce, please share your story with us. How did you get to where you are today?
I went to the Steve Harvey Neighborhood Awards in the fall of 2015. I considered it a very successful event. I connected with a lot of people, spoke on the health pavilion platform, and facilitated a couple of workshops. However, when I arrived home I began to feel a sense of discontentment. I couldn’t figure out why I was having those feelings after such a great experience.

Well, I’ve always loved to journal my thoughts but I had not done it in a while. This day I picked it up and began to express my emotions on paper. When I write it’s my quiet time and allows me to organize my thoughts and connect with God on an intimate level. I felt better afterward and it gave me clarity of thoughts. It was in that moment I felt the nudge to “blog.” I didn’t understand why because I’m such a private person. I felt the pull so strongly to begin sharing some of my life’s experiences and spiritual insights in blog form.

My current company at the time was called Zoea Life, Inc which was created in 2009. I was focused on solely providing Christian Counseling and Life Coaching services but when I moved forward to create the blog what was really unfolding was my creativity and a rebranding process for my current company. I also realized God used my discontentment and despair to also lead me towards a personal rebranding process of embracing A NEW ME.

From a professional perspective, it took some time to really develop this NEW concept but now our focus is not solely on the blogs. We continue to provide inspirational value (blogs) but we have also added products (apparel, books, etc.) and services (counseling and life coaching).

Has it been a smooth road?
It hasn’t been a smooth road at all but it’s been worth it! As I’ve stated, it wasn’t just a professional rebranding “face lift” but a personal one. I’ve had many moments when I wanted to quit, moments of confusion, and many moments when I questioned if I was really cut out for this but my WHY kept me intact.

A NEW ME: Transparently, Abundantly was more than a new brand but it is my passion, purpose, and God-given calling. I have learned the importance of balance which may not look the same from day to day. Writing and executing my goals, giving myself deadlines, and not forgetting to spend time with my family, friends, and even make time for self-replenishment have been essential to balance out those inevitable struggles.

What has been key to my current success is the overwhelming love and support from my husband and my faith in God.

So, as you know, we’re impressed with A NEW ME: Transparently, Abundantly – tell our readers more, for example what you’re most proud of as a company and what sets you apart from others.
The mission of A NEW ME: Transparently, Abundantly is to educate, encourage, and equip individuals to live their lives transparently and abundantly in Christ by providing inspirational value, products, and services. I specialize in trauma and grief recovery for those seeking to find resolve from past issues. I’ve found that many individuals, specifically women, often feel “stuck” emotionally and mentally. They want to connect with God, they want to live in their purpose, and they want to embrace A NEW ME but they don’t know how. I provide them with the emotional, mental, and spiritual tools and principles to help them overcome that psychological impasse.

What I’m most proud of is when people receive the results they are seeking. When they have those “ah-ha” moments in session or when I receive their feedback on how a blog, product, or service really helped change their perspective or view of life while in the midst of psychological challenges. It’s not necessarily about the “sale” even though that’s important to any company, but what matters most to me is when people experience an inner change, when they feel more connected to God, and when they believe their journey towards embracing A NEW ME is all worth it. It’s in those moments I feel most proud and fulfilled.

Because my focus is on incorporating biblical solutions and therapeutic techniques it allows me to stand out from traditional therapy services and practices. Although the traditional, clinical approach is important, I’ve found that many people desire psychological help from a biblical perspective, which is something I offer.

What we also offer is private and secured virtual video sessions. 90% of my individual counseling/coaching sessions are conducted virtually. Many individuals are seeking the convenience of being in the comfort of their home during a session. It helps them to feel more relaxed because they are in their familiar and safe environment. This is a great convenience we offer to those who are seeking quality services at their convenience.
