A spiritual advisor, spiritual companion, or spiritual guide, is
“a psychologist for the soul”.

~ MEISTER ECKHART ~
I have integrated spirituality and religion into my work for the past 30 plus years, however I called myself a closet spiritual counselor because my profession at the time discouraged me from using spirituality as part of my practice.
Then a gift that gave me clarity came during COVID. Yes, COVID has been devastating and there has been gifts along the way… my decision to come out of the spiritual closet began with COVID.
I began a prayer group for myself as well as for others. I felt a strong need to connect with prayer because I wanted to help people during this horrific time. We prayed together for nine months daily. It was powerfully transforming for all the group members in ways I don’t even know because each of us have taken different paths since then.
It was clear to me however, that I was to continue to provide spiritual support.
As it happens for me things fall into place as I looked for programs and support groups. Each step unfolded in Divine Order and as it did more and more of the clients that I was serving began to open up about their spiritual challenges. Some felt betrayed by God, some felt like they had lost their faith completely and others were looking for a new way to understand spirituality as well as what was happening to our world.
And so my Spiritual Companion practice emerged and continues to grow.
