Spiritual Direction

Why Is Spiritual Direction Helpful? jpeg

We are living in a rapidly changing world. Much of what we are now witnessing may feel unsettling. Not only are we faced with challenges in myriad areas of our own lives, e.g., relationships, health, finances and so forth, we are also confronted with threats to the precious environment and extinction of innumerable species.  Spiritual direction is a process of accompanying people on a spiritual journey and helping them grow closer to the sacred, the holy, or a higher power. Spiritual direction helps people learn how to live in peace, with compassion, and a connection to all things. It helps people replace fear and anxiety with love and serenity.

Is Spiritual Direction Right for You?

Are you interested in deepening your spiritual journey? Are you seeking a deeper connection with your soul and ready to experience more inner peace? If “yes,” you may be ready for some meaningful spiritual direction.

I am an interfaith spiritual director. My motto is “One Love, Many Paths” meaning I support the truth-based teachings in all of the world’s greatest religions,as well as, the deeply personal, mystical experiences we have without practicing any religion.

Some of the transformational benefits of combining depth psychology and spiritual and somatic counseling includes:

Liberating yourself from limiting patterns from the past
Cultivating the capacity to be authentic and transparent in sharing your feelings, needs and desires
Generating empowered relationships with your feelings and emotions so you can realize your greater capacity
Learning to trust your inner self as you discern, make difficult choices and set strong boundaries
Experiencing the joy of being radically alive and dynamically engaged in the co-creative process of life
Learning how to access the support and resources of Creation in all that you do and everywhere you go
Creating evolutionary partnerships that are based on truth, honesty and respect

Our journey will take place in the context of confidential one-on-one sessions, lasting from 60-90 minutes. I have extensive training and am seasoned in the art of interfaith spiritual direction. After three or four sessions, you will have the opportunity to evaluate the relationship. Whether our relationship continues for many years or for only a short period of time, it is very important to be comfortable with the process. What is shared between is will always be held in the utmost confidence.

My Background:
I am an active member of Spiritual Director’s International and my background is in world religions, women’s spirituality, Jungian dream analysis, transpersonal psychology, and integrative studies. I’ve had the unique opportunity of attending two seminary programs, The New Seminary and One Spirit Learning Alliance in New York City and have been providing spiritual direction for twenty years.

60 minute session $85, 90 minute session $125 and I offer a sliding scale for those having a financial hardship.
