Through our struggles we learn to be strong ~Butterfly Story

Butterfly Healing Wings Counseling

God's Butterfly. 

A man found a cocoon of a butterfly. One day a small opening appeared. He sat and watched the butterfly for several hours as it struggled to force its body through a little hole. Then suddenly, the butterfly seemed to stop making progress. It appeared as if it had gotten as far as it could, and it could go no further. So the man decided to help the butterfly. He took a pair of scissors and snipped off the remaining bit of the cocoon. The butterfly emerged easily, but its body was swollen and its wings small-shriveled. It was never able to fly.  

What the man, in his kindness and haste, did not understand was that the restricting cocoon and its struggle was a process.  A holy process that required the butterfly to get struggle through the tiny opening was God's way of forcing fluid from the body into its wings. The struggle would be its reward by the ability to fly! -(Anonymous) DeeDee Fetters Adapted-to Healing Wings Counseling 

The story represents that as a counselor-I am just a servant, God's representative - never to interfere with the real process of God's will and order. I think at times people feel we will "give the quick fix", but counseling is about change, a struggle to learn to fly and to relearn to fly again. In the midst of sometimes difficult times, we just learn how we really find ways to fly again with new wings.   


Counselors are not the wind or the cocoon.

We are just the ones who ask how high you want to fly and pushing closer to God Himself.   :)  DeeDee Fetters



"But for you who revere My name, the sun of righteousness will rise with healing in your wings. . ."  Malachi 4: 2

Our Story

Healing Wings Counseling was formed in 2003 as a counseling ministry and non-profit in Ohio. We started out counseling in churches and providing education to only those who attended church there in our early years. Healing Wings did expand counseling services by giving more education to other counselors as well as supervision including education for first responders. DeeDee Fetters, at the time was also working at Central Ohio Technical Community College as well as The Ohio State University in Disabilities and Counseling. Healing Wings thrived as a private practice in Delaware County, Ohio for many years. In 2020, our family moved to North Carolina to be closer to family in the south. Healing Wings Counseling transferred to NC as well as its mission to continue to provide Christian counseling. Our mission has always been to help all different types of people, churches, as well as  schools find hope and healing in our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
