Who is J. Rapha?

J Rapha Consulting About

J. Rapha stands for Jehovah Rapha, the God who heals. It comes from the story of a group of people, Israelites, who left slavery in Egypt for an unknown Promised Land led by a man named Moses.


After nearly three days without water, they came to a pool of bitter water they couldn't drink. The Israelites complained against Moses who cried out to the Lord on their behalf, and the Lord answered. He told Moses to throw a log into the bitter water, which would turn the water sweet, making it drinkable.

Sometimes the path to healing and life looks different than we expect. If we're willing to try, He can do miracles.

Moses did what he was told, and the water became drinkable. God said to Moses and the people, "If you will diligently listen to the voice of the Lord your God, and do that which is right in his eyes, and give ear to his commandments and keep all his statutes, I will put none of the diseases on you that I put on the Egyptians, for I am the Lord, your healer." (Exodus 15:26, ESV).

At J. Rapha, we look to Jehovah Rapha as the Healer, who is represented perfectly in the person of Jesus Christ. By His stripes, we are healed (1 Peter 2:24).


Veteran Family

22 veterans a day commit suicide - that was the statistic back in 2010. Today, more than 30 veterans commit suicide every day. STOP stands for: Save & Transform One Person. DROP stands for: Disciple & Revive Other People.

Our 22STOPnDROP program provides trauma healing life coaching sessions to our veterans at no cost. Thanks to the generous donations of patriots like you, our veterans have someone to talk to without worrying if their information will end up on their records. Instead of committing suicide, they commit to showing up.

Our life coaches are either veterans, disabled veterans, or have a first generation connection to a veteran. Each life coach has overcome his or her personal trauma's as well, so we know how to walk with you on your healing journey. We coach you, step for step, how to move from suicide to being saved and transformed so you can go out and help the next vet.

Thin Line Care (T.L.C. Program)

Police Patch

Most of the population experiences 2-3 traumatic events in a lifetime. A police officer faces more than 225 traumatic incidents throughout their career. 


Our Thin line Care program provides our life coaches a chance to build relationships with first responders while they're on duty at the fire station, police department or dispatch station because many of our staff are certified police and fire chaplains.


Additionally, after the traumatic incident is over, our Thin Line Care Program provides life coaching sessions at no cost to first responders (police, fire, dispatchers, and corrections officers) by the chaplains they already trust.

Your donation gives our first responders a chance to get the healing they need from people they trust, people who understand, and people who won't keep a record of their sessions that could impact their careers.

JRapha Founders

How it Began

Samantha Means, MDiv, C.L.C

Founder | Chief Executive Officer

Jennifer Crow, C.L.C

Founder | Chief Operating Officer

J. Rapha Consulting began in Samantha's heart in April 2017 when the Lord asked her, "Are you willing to give up everything you think you know about me to find out who I really am?" After decades of trauma she surrendered to the Lord and decided to follow His ways in all things. In three years, she became a trauma counselor to help others on their healing journey.

Jennifer's heart for healing blossomed in 2015 when she experienced the healing power of Jesus Christ and began leading Genesis Process healing groups to lead people to the Healer.

The two met in 2022 and a friendship quickly formed. With a passion for Jesus Christ and a desire to see people experience the holistic healing they live every day, they decided to form an organization dedicated to healing by encountering and following the God who heals, Jehovah Rapha. 

Our military, veterans, first responders, and their families sacrifice more than many realize. The thing they should never have to sacrifice is healing. From people who understand, we're here to offer support.
