"Ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free."
– John 8:32
Welcome to Walk Lite Life Coaching Services! My name is Dr. Edden Agonafer. I am a Christian Black woman who is deeply committed to understanding people's journeys to healing and thriving. I am also very passionate about the intersection of Christian faith and wellness.
I completed my doctorate degree at Fuller Theological Seminary with an emphasis on the integration of psychology and Christianity. After many years of formal training, clinical work with therapy clients, teaching graduate students, and my own journey of healing and thriving, I felt encouraged to share the wisdom I discovered.
Through Walk Lite Coaching Services, I hope to offer support to people as they explore life's challenges and uncover the truth about wellness and healing from a Christian, biblical perspective.
My mission is to help people identify limiting thoughts and beliefs that interfere with their ability to live an abundant life as Christ promised. By sitting with people in this capacity, my prayer and hope is that they walk away after each session feeling seen, understood, and given the tools they need to overcome these thoughts, beliefs, emotions, and behaviors.

A Note on Life Coaching vs. Therapy
Participating in life coaching is not the same as seeing a therapist. Therapy addresses and heals areas of life that are significantly impacted while coaching focuses on enhancing the quality of life without unpacking past experiences and pains. A life coach offers insight and motivation for change while a therapist (e.g., psychologist, social worker, marriage and family therapist) provides treatment to provide support on various and potentially long-standing issues such as trauma, depression, anxiety, eating-related disorders, and complex relationship issues.
