About Flourish International
Flourish International exists to equip Christian communities to support survivors of sexual exploitation through the process of healing and integration into authentic families.
Our vision comes from Psalm 92, “Those who are planted in the house of Lord shall flourish in the courts of our God. They shall still bear fruit in old age; they shall be fresh and flourishing, to declare that the Lord is upright; He is my rock, and there is no unrighteousness in Him.”
Our Mission Statement
Based on scripture and professional experience, we understand healing, sustainability, and maturity to develop best through safe intimacy in families and communities who genuinely love Jesus. We seek to mobilize and empower the Body of Christ to be a primary environment of restoration through trauma-informed training programs and professional support.
Flourish International will conduct certification courses within a network of churches; assess and supervise client intakes and screenings of placements; assist in building partnerships between churches and local service providers; provide post-placement consultation for families; and collaborate with clients and host families to build personalized systems of support and sustainability.

After several years of experience with trauma and recovery, Kezia believes healthy families are the linchpin to all human growth and restored design. She received her M.A. in Clinical Psychology from Azusa Pacific University and is a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist. She has worked exclusively with survivors of sex trafficking and their support systems, while also developing and overseeing a residential aftercare program. Through the adoption of her daughter, Kezia has seen Jesus’ glory in family and the restoration He brings through the process. Her desire is to nurture the healing integration of individuals, families, and communities – that what were once cycles of abuse are turned into blessings for future generations.
