Spiritual Concerns

Exploring spiritual issues in therapy

For those who are interested, therapy can incorporate the spiritual aspect of life. Spirituality can be hard to define because it is such a personal concept, influenced by our upbringing, culture, and life experiences. It is not synonymous with religion or faith, although for some they are connected. It is up to each of us to define what spirituality means and in what way it is important or not. What I offer is an openness and experience with incorporating spiritual questions, beliefs, and exploration into therapy. It is not a requirement to bring a spiritual perspective into therapy, it’s just an option for those who know it is an important aspect of their life or one they haven’t had a chance to speak about in depth. 

Examples of spiritually-oriented explorations in therapy 

  • If nature is where you feel most alive you can explore and deepen this in therapy and utilize it as a way to stay connected to yourself and the world around you.
  • Maybe you felt a spiritual connection as a child that you lost growing up and want to find your way back to that sense of connection and meaning. 
  • Investigating spiritual or transcendent experiences in a supportive and nonjudgmental space
  • Understanding archetypal energies as they show up in your life and dreams
  • Accessing inner guidance and intuition 
  • Exploring how to live in a way that prioritizes your deepest values and purpose
  • Inquiring into what feels sacred to you and creating a practice around this

  • Your visions will become clear only when you can look into your own heart. Who looks outside, dreams; who looks inside, awakes.
