Grief Care

Pastoral Care is offered in both individual and small group sessions that are both based on the five stages of grief defined by Elizabeth Kubler Ross.  Additionally, the areas of inner as well as outer grieving will be explored from the loss of a loved one,  to the loss of a job, home, children, or friends.

Loss as it exists to the one perceiving it is a loss, regardless of the cause or source.

Pastoral Services

The practice of pastoral care assists those who want to become more fully functional as a human being in this process we call life.  The art of pastoral care helps the seeker integrate a spiritual and religious dimension to the real and perceived anxieties of life that prevent anyone from living a happy life of joy, fulfillment and love of self and others.

Spiritual Direction

The practice of being a spiritual companion is patterned upon the teachings of Saint Ignatius Loyola in the Jesuit tradition that allows the client to be “discerning to the Holy Spirit”, drawing the client to a greater love of God and neighbor rooted in faith and hope.  Spiritual Direction is nondenominational and all faith traditions are welcomed and fully supported in their tradition of choice with love and prayer.

Life Coaching

The Life Coach is that person who walks along side another to assist that person in answering the age old questions of: Who am I?  Why am I here at this time? What is my purpose?  What is my belief system? What am I going to do with and about all this?

”Pat, your heart is open to hearing, accepting and following the call of The Great Spirit. Like a caterpillar that exchanges what is familiar to become a butterfly, you are always willing to allow all of us to let go of what is known in order to experience the new.  As we stay true to that, transformation follows.  Love and light to your path always.”

”Pat, thanks so much for sharing the book with me at a time when I needed it…pretty uncanny as a matter of fact, because I have been listening to that author on the radio each morning on the way to work and intended to buy the book.  Without your knowing any of that, you sent it to me!  Thank you for your kindness the last few months. You’re such a comforting, kind soul and I’m going to miss seeing you each week.”
