Our mental health is so vital, but we often put it on the back burner to take care of "more important things". I am so glad you're here, which tells me that you are starting to consider prioritizing your mental health and emotional wellbeing. Sometimes, we try to "keep it all together" in order to focus on other things in our life, such as work, school, family, and relationships, without really realizing that our symptoms bleed into every single area of our life. When that happens, it can feel like our sadness, anxiety, anger, flashbacks, or whatever else, is affecting our ability to function normally and live a fulfilling life.

You are trying to keep a brave face on the outside. However, in the quiet moments at home, you find yourself crying and not sure what to do next. You know you can’t keep going on like this because the hopelessness is closing in and you can’t see any end in sight.

As humans, we develop strategies to help keep ourselves physically, mentally, & emotionally safe in an unpredictable world. These strategies may look like: isolating, self judgement, keeping yourself busy at all times, struggling to pull together enough energy to get through the day, putting others’ needs before your own, or feeling a lack of purpose/hope for the future. Sound familiar? At one point those strategies served a vital purpose, but may feel confining now. Sometimes we outgrow the techniques we learned way back when, or our circumstances change, & if we keep using them, they can actually become harmful.

Has our current health climate inspired you to make a change? Spiritual direction is the process of exploring a deeper relationship with the spiritual aspect of being human, and any aspect of your unique, personal, and sacred spirituality. For some, this includes exploring your relationship with the divine, deepening your spiritual identity, or building spiritual practices. For others, it includes exploring spiritual beliefs or values and the degree to which these fit with your personhood. It can involve asking questions, sharing joy, fears, or struggles, getting ‘unstuck’, or creating change in an informed and intentional way.

Change is hard. The emotions that arise can be painful to face and sometimes feel as if they keep us from moving forward. These changes are what I call the "difficult bumps" or "nodes" in life. I think of it this way: When the "nodes" of the cut stem of a plant are nourished with water they grow into roots. The stem transforms into a thriving plant, its roots anchoring it solidly to the ground. I help clients to recognize their "bumps" as an opportunity to transform pain into new roots of empowerment, self-worth, and self-appreciation.
