Spiritual Counseling

It is both an ancient and a modern tradition to sit with another who is on a spiritual journey. Historically called “spiritual direction”, the more contemporary wording reflects my role as companion, not expert. My expertise is in sacred listening and a deep presence to what you bring. This is a heart as well as a head experience.

A person might consider spiritual counseling at a time of crisis or loss. People also can come to this process out of a deep, perhaps nagging longing for some greater connection, or shifting questions about the nature of life and death.

Usually clients meet with me once a month, either in person or by phone/Skype.

In our Unitarian church we offer a spiritual deepening program, Wellspring, of which I was a founding member. Beyond facilitating in this small group program, I often counsel participants one-on-one.

To avoid any confusion, Spiritual Counseling is not psychotherapy, for which I am not licensed. Rather I am willing to walk with you on YOUR spiritual path.
