Spiritual Director

What does that mean?

1. In spiritual direction sessions or coaching, and any classes and materials I may create to support you, the primary focus is on respectful, engaging healing and discovery, using any models we have available to us, and a wholistic model of compassionate care.

What does that mean? Your spirituality may not be my spiritual practice, and that's ok. Maybe you love your spirituality and would like to expand upon it. Maybe you don't know where you stand with your spiritual practice, but you want to find out. Maybe you have a brokenness because of circumstances, and you are wondering how a more spiritual approach can get to the depth of things. We can get in there together, gently and directly, always kindly.

2. It is not "diagnose and treat" as is in the traditional counseling/psychology model. This is a type of companioning, guiding, exploring and directing through a lens of deep care and curiosity. Listening, applying, and walking a while together. 

It's important to say here, as an experienced interfaith practitioner and ordained minister and therapeutic arts specialist, I have no affiliation or agenda with any religions underlying in our work together.

Together, we will be within your personal spiritual beliefs, cultural models and foundations and embrace them into our work toward our identified goals. 

We can address such topics as loss, grief, life changes and transitions around health, career or personal development, personal and spiritual crisis and understanding, goal setting, PTSD, LGBTQA, non-clinical depression and anxiety, couple and family structures: merging or separating, and many other personal and spiritual dynamics, life's challenges and more everyday decisions and growth. 

3. I have varied training, experience that I continue to build upon. My doctorate is in sacred dialogue, engagement and activism, and I've put this passion to good use in a bunch of ways.

My study of the arts can also join us here. As can my cultivated natural and studied mystic.

 My skills and ideas are designed to meet you as an individual and share strategies with you to work toward your goals, explore your needs.

Together, in perhaps an unconventional but grounded way, in one meeting or several, we can have some new strategies for you to consider.  Your spiritual beliefs are your own, your gender and sexual orientation is accepted and respected. Your race, culture, diversity, immigration status, background, are welcome. Come as you are.

4. Because the word "spiritual" is here in my description, I want to be very clear, I have no will to modify your beingness into some pre-held concepts,  in fact, I have gone to great lengths to understand beyond my self, and I wish only to walk with you a while, however we decide that works, as a clear support for you. I am truly interfaith, and consider myself a Love Maverick. We are empowered to be our best selves, and form ourselves in our beliefs, engaging in our inner development and our communities. 

In safety and love, I am here with you. In your grief, your challenges, your losses, your changes, your self-discovery, your goal development,

in all stages and through care and decades of experience.
