The Full Story


Igniting Purpose was birthed out of a lifelong vision to create a Christian Therapeutic Healing Center where people could come and heal from trauma, religious abuse, neglect, abandonment, lack of community, despair, rejection, fear, and misunderstanding about God's Word, and His love. Combining seasoned therapists with the power of God's Word and love, Igniting Purpose is a place where people can come heal, learn tools to communicate, learn how to love and take care of themselves and each other, and find their God-given purpose. Nested in the hills of Brush Creek TN, Igniting Purpose purchased 45 acres and is in the process of building an event center, barn (Equine Therapy), trails, pond, outdoor theatre, and chapel on the hill. We are slowly adding animals (chickens, donkeys, ducks, and horses). We are holding our workshops at nearby resorts until we can be a fully serviced resort center where we can hold all types of events where people can build a healing community. Currently seeing clients online for therapy and Life Coaching.

Kathy Ann Stommel

Licensed Professional Counselor, LPC, MHSP, NCC

I am a relationally focused therapist whose priority is to create safety. My goal is to help you discover your potential and get on your path to a successful and productive life. My hope is that you gain freedom quickly and learn the skills and confidence to be the greatest advocate and coach for yourself. I work with a large spectrum of emotional and psychological challenges in a comfortable and safe environment. Together we can partner to make a lasting and powerful change by looking at what is not working in your life and developing a plan for success and healing.


Specializing in Individual, Couple, or group Intensives which are life-changing and efficient-a year's worth of therapy. Currently seeing clients online for counseling and Life Coaching. I am a Certified Brainspotting therapist-which is a highly effective modality through telehealth (Zoom). Private Intensives are held at my office in Brentwood, TN, resorts, or at your location. I currently work at Onsite Workshops.

My heart is to help people heal and come to a place of self-empowerment, discovering how loved they are and their potential to love and live the life they desire. Healing is available, it only takes the willingness to reach out and trust that there is someone with the skill set to help you find your way toward freedom through new ways of thinking.
