I am open to working with those who are interested in incorporating their spirituality into therapy.
I have worked with a wide range of clients over the course of my career. Many of my clients want to overcome their anxiety, obsessions, compulsions, and fears. I enjoy finding creative ways to challenge these problems. Together, we can gain further awareness of the problem, explore it, and work toward solutions. Clients that I like to work with tend to be looking for a more value-driven life. They want to overcome their fears by facing the challenge. When the work is done, they can look back at what they have accomplished like looking down from the peak after a long hike.

Most of my clients are highly sensitive people who have strong intuition and want to work in a deep way. They often are therapists, healers, psychics and people for whom direct experience spirituality is important. Many of them have experienced talk therapy and want to go deeper, recognizing that the roots of most emotional or cognitive issues are below ordinary consciousness. They are seeking life-changing experience rather than mental insight. They appreciate a therapist who can see and acknowledge their inherent wisdom and power as a soul, and they are seeking a therapist who is highly trained and also works intuitively.

I have a deep love for people and desire for people to know and embody their worth. I approach therapy from a belief that healing begins with the therapeutic relationship itself and I will collaborate with you to discover new levels of safety and wholeness. It would be honor to come along side you in this journey. Before counseling I worked as a theatre artist and this informs my belief that healing is a whole body, as well as a creative endeavor. I have a high regard for the sacred and the role of spirituality and will incorporate this as directed by you.

I embrace a holistic approach uniquely tailored to fit the needs of each individual client. I focus heavily on understanding my client’s specific perspective on the world and utilize that knowledge to provide the most thorough and compassionate care possible. You are the expert of your own life. It is my goal to provide a safe space for you to turn up the volume on your own intuition, and walk yourself back home.

I also enjoy blending elements of traditional therapy and spirituality in sessions with clients who are interested.
“It’s just not working. Maybe we aren’t meant to be. It shouldn’t be this hard. I just need my space. Nothing I do is ever good enough. I feel like we’re just roommates." These are some of the statements that bring us to our knees in relationships, and hopefully get us in the door to therapy. As humans, we are biologically wired to connect with others. Since conception, we have some level of dependency that our society just expects us to “grow out of” as we age. While in reality, we need a secure relationship with another to feel comfortable enough to take necessary risks in our individual lives.

Spirituality Therapists

What should I expect from therapy that incorporates a focus on spirituality?

Spirituality can mean different things to different individuals, depending on their experiences, beliefs, and life histories. Some individuals focus on strengthening their belief system, while others experience spirituality in secular ways, such as through meditation, yoga, or by spending time in nature. Clients can expect a therapist to help guide and grow their spirituality through any of these techniques, encouraging the individual to cope with the challenges they face and develop strategies to build resilience and purpose to improve their outlook in life.

What are the most common treatments that include spirituality?

There are several treatments that incorporate spirituality. Mindfulness-based cognitive therapy (MBCT) helps a person examine and reframe their negative thoughts and behaviors. Acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT) focuses on emotional acceptance and psychological flexibility. Existential therapy is most often used to address anxiety, depression, grief, loneliness, apathy, despair, questions of identity, and feelings of purposelessness and existential dread. Transpersonal therapy focuses on a client’s spirituality and meaning in life and may incorporate techniques including meditation, visualization, hypnotherapy, dream analysis, and or breathwork.

Can therapy incorporating spirituality help atheistic or agnostic individuals?

Yes. For non-believers, spirituality can offer benefits including a greater sense of connection to others and to the natural world. An interest in spirituality may also spur individuals to pursue mindfulness practices, or to contemplate their purpose in life and how to achieve it.

How effective is spirituality as a therapeutic remedy?

​​Research suggests spirituality is generally beneficial for individuals. It is correlated with better health habits, such as less substance use, and an improved capacity to cope with stress and other mental health challenges. Increased spirituality can lead individuals to become more empathic and less materialistic, as well.
