Spiritually Integrated Therapy

Spiritually-Integrated Therapy

Psycho-spiritual therapy integrates spirituality, 

psycho-education, mental health, wellness, religion, pathology 

and human development principles to 

identify and address challenges across all stages of the life.

“Spirituality is recognizing and celebrating that we are all inextricably connected to each other by a power greater than all of us, and that our connection to that power and to one another is grounded in love and compassion. Practicing spirituality brings a sense of perspective, meaning, and purpose to our lives.”  Brené Brown

As a spiritually integrated psychotherapist, I look to offer a holistic perspective that incorporates mind, body and spirit.  I like to think of this as a spiritually-informed approach.

This approach includes embodying and attending to my own healing path.  As an example, I recently completed a sabbatical that has refreshed and enriched my personal, professional and spiritual practice. 

During my time away from regular client sessions, I attended meditation retreats and spiritual teachings and went on pilgrimages to sacred sites.  I also engaged in continuing professional development education and volunteer service to the psychotherapy profession.

A key direction of my sabbatical strategic plan was integrating my personal, educational and spiritual growth and experiences into a reimagined and renewed spiritual psychotherapy practice.

Meditation practice, teachings and pilgrimage to Buddhist sites have further enhanced my masters degree training that incorporated Buddhist approaches to mental health and spiritual care and psychotherapy.

Continuing professional education has allowed me to add a new modality to complement to my current offerings and to deepen and reinvigorate the integration of sacred and mindful sound.

Refreshed and reenergized, I very much look forward to working with you!

Working With Me

I am passionately committed to guiding individuals like you to work through life’s challenges, crisis and difficulties to find balance, spark, purpose, meaning and joy in life.

I feel that it is both a privilege and an honour to walk alongside you as you navigate difficulties, uncertainties and challenges in life.  With great care, compassion and with an emphasis on safety, I invite you to share your unique situation.  Through deep listening and her gentle presence, I help you to identify your goals, develop a treatment plan, and to identify patterns as well as exceptions that may be helpful to better understand your current circumstances.  In concert, I hope for you to recognize your own strengths and internal resources.  These strengths, often forged from your unique experiences, then become accessible to navigate and overcome current distresses and hurdles.  Through this developing, relational connection, you may feel empowered to move ahead in healthy and resilient ways.

It is through deeply hearing you that I feel can help to identify interventions and modalities that may be most effective.  With a wide-ranging toolkit of evidence-based and practice-based modalities and an integrated therapy approach that incorporates a holistic view of mind, body and spirit, I will suggest and look to implement tools that resonate for you. 

If you are interested in integrating spirituality into your therapy, please be sure to mention it during our intake.  In the meantime, here is an informative article from Psychology Today that provides an overview of the history and research of spirituality and mental health:
