Spirituality is the relationships and meaning we find in life.
Everyone needs strength and courage to face life. And everyone needs a foundation of love and support. Spirituality enables you to build this foundation and find the inner resources needed to thrive.
We all have flaws and imperfections. How we hold these aspects of ourselves can determine our ability to have healthy relationships. Holding the “shadow” side of oneself with shame and guilt leads to isolation and addictions. Spiritual counseling seeks to embrace and integrate the shadow, accepting and forgiving flaws and imperfections, restoring wholeness and belonging.
Spiritual counseling works within your own belief system and understanding of God. Some people have been hurt by church, clergy, or authority figures that promoted a punitive and judgemental God. Spiritual counseling explores a gentler, compassionate image of a Creator. You deepen the connection and trust with Life itself.
