What is Spiritual Direction?

Spiritual direction is the practice of companioning another in their journey of deepening connection with God. The person seeking direction (directee) shares stories of encounters of God, spiritual questions, or daily struggles with a spiritual director. An underlying theology of spiritual direction is that God is present in all of human experience, so these questions or stories can be rooted in simple daily encounters or concerns. The director holds a hospitable, safe space for the directee, and asks intentional or clarifying questions about his/her/their share. Spiritual direction is about growth in relationship to God, rather than solving problems or fixing things.

What I personally appreciate about direction is it empowers the directee (you) to grow in intimacy to God. I am not there to judge, evaluate, or fix, but will hold a prayerful space with you as you reflect on what you’re discovering.

How it works

Location

I meet with directees once a month for about 50 minutes in the Outer Sunset district of San Francisco. I also meet with clients over video chat if they do not live in the area.

Fee and cancellations

I charge $75 a session, but please contact me if you require a lower rate. Either we will find a fee that works for both of us, or I will connect you with someone in your price range.

Cancellations or rescheduling require 24 hour notice, otherwise you will be responsible for your fee. My directees contact me about scheduling issues over text or email.

Confidentiality

Everything we discuss in session is confidential with two excepts:

  1. It seems you will do harm to yourself or others.
  2. I meet quarterly with a spiritual direction coach, where we focus on a select session. If I select one of our sessions,  your name and distinguishing qualities will be changed, but I will be sharing a part of what we discussed, with the focus being on me growing further as a director.

Your next step

If spiritual direction sounds interesting, I’d love to meet and talk more about what direction with me would look like for you. You can begin the conversation by contacting me with the below form.
