Spiritual Development and Exploration


An Essential Element to Well-Being

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

~ Carl Jung

Sometimes, people reach out to us because they are searching for meaning and healing. Other times, they seek us out because they want to grow and reach their fullest potential as a person, a parent, a partner, or a friend.

Our clients value having a supportive and accepting place to come regularly as they delve deeper into understanding themselves and the world around them, and work to grow into their fullest potential.

We believe therapy is a powerful tool for deepening spiritual exploration.

What is Spirituality?

Spirituality is often defined as a sense of connection to something greater than oneself, which can include religious beliefs, a connection to nature, a sense of purpose, astrology, connection to intuition or Spirit, or a search for meaning in life. We believe that spiritual beliefs, practices, and experiences greatly influence an individual’s mental health and overall well-being.

How is Spirituality Incorporated in Therapy?

In the context of therapy, spirituality offers a framework to find meaning, healing, purpose, and connection. Support that respects and aligns with a clients belief system is foundational. We often begin with exploration of a your spiritual beliefs and how these beliefs may influence your mental health, concerns, and well-being.

There are many ways we incorporate spirituality into sessions with our clients. Some examples include, but not limited to, discussion of spiritual themes and practices (meditation, prayer, etc), encouragement of connection with nature or spiritual communities, and psychedelic-assisted psychotherapy.
