Our Story

Pillars of Light and Love is a non-profit located just outside Collegeville Pennsylvania in the borough of Trappe. Launched in 2015 by local well-known REALTOR, Kathy Opperman- who is also a licensed Registered Nurse and Certified Life Coach- the main focus of the non-profit is Stress and Life Management for ages 5 to adult. Our goal is to teach children, teens and adults to reduce stress, have strong self-esteem, overcome anxiety and depression and bullying and build confidence to achieve better coping techniques, positive communication skills, and healthy relationships.  When people are able to handle the stuff of life, we believe it will help to avoid addiction, self-harm, anxiety, overwhelming sadness and depression. 

We offer over a dozen free ongoing support groups plus workshops for ages 5 to adult,  as well as youth empowerment programs like Julia's Joy Teen & Tween programs, Community Kindness Projects, Tom's Warriors, Andy's Angels and and annual Julia's Joy Voice Idol Competition. Feel free to explore our site for details on each tab of our site. 

Donations raised for Pillars of Light and Love fund many workshops and are used to provide discounted or free services (based on availability), at the Empowering U Center, such as Life Coaching, Marriage Counseling, Family Therapy, Teen Talk Therapy and Stress and Anxiety Management, EMDR Therapy, Biodfeedback (a holistic alternative for anxiety and depression), as well as other Anxiety and Stress Relief services for those with serious illnesses, caregivers of special needs children and adults, as well as Disabled Veterans. These services are also available to the general public. See Practitioners and their services HERE.
