Transformation From Within

Integrative
Spiritual 
Coaching

The human being is an intricate and complex system, made infinite by our creative power, intuition, and constantly changing contexts. Our life long drive for safety, meaning and authenticity in a world of material limits and shifting biological forces, leads to unexpected challenges and choices.

 

The desire to seek healing, purpose, and transformation, or simply a deeper understanding of how to live well, should be held within a container and consciousness as expansive and adaptive as the seeker. A reliable guide in life is willing to supportively challenge, credibly inform, and offer unconditional companionship to a process of discovery and self-remembering.

Integrative Spiritual Coaching addresses what matters most to you today in the greater context of your personal growth, life purpose, past-experience, and most inspired future wholeness.

What Is Integrative Spiritual Coaching?

I use the word "spiritual" to refer to your ultimate story of meaning, identity, purpose, and worldview. For some, these may be completely free from religion, metaphysics, or philosophy, for others, these life elements are embedded in or are reflective of spiritual systems and traditions. All approaches are welcome, but I do not work with life issues independent of these core life elements.

 

In my work there is no experience that can be treated in isolation of your total self, life path, and evolving worldview. In my work the "issue" is rarely the issue, and I am always keen to explore how our changes, challenges, and "problems" can help to feel more whole, more free, or to serve our path of greater connection to self, life, and Spirit.

Meaning, purpose, self-knowing, and emotional freedom are all keys to my work, and I draw from an inclusive and expansive approach to "spirituality", which can serve anyone from an atheist to a person of deep religious faith.

If you are involved with a spiritual practice, tradition or deep process of growth, I have extensive experience as a companion and guide to help.

 

 

What types of issues can we address?

I see people regarding nearly all the types of issues you might expect to take to a therapist, life or executive coach, or spiritual guide. I tend to draw limit where people require a more traditional bio-medical approach, a more research based perspective,

or a psychological background with a strong focus on mental health issues involving complex trauma.

 

I have a network of providers and organizations I refer to and collaborate with. 

​Does he has a special focus or area of work?

I am comfortable and experience with a wide range of "issue" types, and what makes my work unique is my approach and willingness to integrate complimentary and spiritual practices, such as guided imagery, past life regression, ceremony, nature based experiences and more. Just ask.

 

In terms of topics I love to help with and have a lot of experience with: 

Relationship coping and change

Leadership development

Spiritual growth and healing

What types of clients and issues are not suited for my work?

If your primary focus is to find support to address a serious, debilitating complex trauma, or an ongoing mental health condition, this may not be a fit for you. I do work with trauma survivors, I do address trauma, and I can support people with mental health conditions. However, when any of these issues are the main focus of your need for support, you will be much better in the care of a licensed, certified clinician or medical professional.
