What does a spiritual counselor do and what does the process look like?

Spiritual counselors listen carefully to what you have to say, ask a lot of questions, and points out things he or she notices that you may have missed. Such a spiritual counselor believes that the person who comes for direction is the expert on his or her spiritual life, and deep down, knows what is best. A true spiritual director is good at helping people uncover that "deep down" wisdom. I use a process called "The Work" in my spiritual counseling sessions to assist with uncovering that wisdom within you. For more information on how this process works, please click here.

An interfaith spiritual counselor does not care what religion you are, or even if you have a particular religion. An interfaith spiritual counselor will help you discern what your spiritual path is, and will encourage you to walk it to the best of your ability - even if it is very different from his or her own path. Interfaith spiritual counelors are not afraid of people whose spirituality is different from theirs, because they know that they have just as much to learn from the spiritual direction encounter as the person seeking direction.

Sometimes in the process of spiritual direction we are required to let go of cherished notions that no longer serve us. Usually these things are not required just once, but over and over. This can be exhausting and sometimes excrutiating. We are not given a road map to show us exactly how to get from here to there, and no instruction manual to tell us the "right" way to do it. Fortunately, we don't have to do it alone. That's where spiritual direction comes in. A spiritual counselor/director will walk with you on your spiritual journey, listen as you uncover your true purpose, and support you as you discover your true path. He or she will point out things that you may not be able to see because they are too close to your field of vision. But you don't have to take their word for anything. You are always the expert on your spiritual life.
