I invite you to work one-on-one with me in sacred conversation and spiritual accompaniment.
(If you’re looking for the scheduling page, it’s over here.)
In a time set aside from other activities, generally once a month, I will accompany you as you consider belief, doubt, practice, and the ups-and-downs of the spiritual life. I will encourage your meaningful relationship with your Deepest, Wisest Self by means of listening, silence, inquiry, ritual, prayer, and other practices.
Hey! Who’s directing here?
This kind of spiritual relationship is most commonly called “spiritual direction,” though it is never I who “directs”. It is your spirit, your relationship with the Holy that does the “directing,” if there is any to be done. I am a guide, a companion, someone who has walked the roads of spirituality and practice for many years. While I can help you notice the movements of Spirit in your life, it is you who experience them. It is your work, and your relationship that are the focus of our time together.
As a priestess in the Stone Circle tradition, in my practice of Unitarian Universalist ministry, in my work for my Masters of Divinity, and while with the Sisters of St. Joseph, I have gathered nearly twenty years of work on spiritual mentoring, discernment, and pastoral care and counseling. Working one-on-one with spiritual seekers—of any religious affiliation or none—brings me deep joy.
What someone else has said
I have had the privilege and pleasure of working with Catharine over the last few years on matters spanning spirit, specifically, and all aspects of managing a whole and healthy life. She is gifted and intuitive, compassionate, and insightful, offering both tactical and strategic help, tools, and occasionally advice. There are times when a guide’s main job is to stand beside you, and simply listen – Catharine does this with both empathy and non-judgment. She is able to raise flags gently and cut to the heart of the matter, then look with me at obstacles and next steps.
In addition to helping guide with gentle hands, and cultivate a gentle way of being in my life, Catharine brings a VAST knowledge of various traditions, which is helpful and inspiring.
If you have the opportunity to work with Catharine as a guide and partner, walk that path without hesitation.” —Tracy Hayes, Redwood City, CA USA
What might you expect from a session with me?
It is to help you enter into the silent spaces of your heart and find the wisdom waiting there.
We may engage many ways of being together: For example, silence, ritual, prayer, and meditation. The heart of our time together is your experience of your story, your journey before, during, and after our time together.
Our first session, one half hour without cost, is time for us to talk about hopes, expectations, to ask and answer questions, and to spend a bit of time together. After that, we’ll meet every month to six weeks, depending on what is best for you.
My fee for each session is $90 per hour-long session.
I would be delighted to schedule a free half-hour call with you to discuss whether you think we might work together fruitfully. Please use my online scheduler to find a time that works for both of us, and we’ll begin!
Many blessings on your journey. I look forward to hearing from you.
What another client has said
Catharine helped me to uncover my own spiritual path, rather than spotlighting her own beliefs or methods. She has a gentle nature and a true curiosity that allows her to ask deep questions and then ‘hold the mirror’ for you as you answer them. There was no judgment or criticism, even when I disappeared for a while or moved very slowly or had a differing opinion. She has a high level of integrity that allows her to leave her ego behind while she explores the depths of the Mystery with you and the entire experience is laced with love and compassion and encouragement.” ~Liliana Arrington, CMT, Virginia Beach, VA, USA~
