Spiritual Counseling for Different Faiths
Though Rick McCarthy comes from a Christian background, he works with people from many different faiths, or no faith. Many people derive their most important values and principles from their religion, which influences their life choices: the friendships they make, the careers they pursue, their day-to-day experience of morality. So when evaluating a person’s issues with depression, substance abuse, relationships, etc, it is essential to take into account their spiritual experiences. My goal is not to guide you toward a particular faith, but help you deepen your relationship with your own, and ensure that your spirituality is a source of well-being and joy in your life.
Benefits of Spiritual Counseling
To survive, we all have basic needs such as food and shelter that must be met. But it is our spirituality that gives life purpose and meaning. If you feel that you have lost that source of meaning, then you may start neglecting important aspects of your life such as your relationships and career. Spiritual counseling can help you explore the issues that are troubling you, guiding you toward an outlook that enables you to live a happier, healthier life.
