Sliding fee scale--you decide what you can afford.

Spiritual Direction is approached with the conviction that each person is the expert on what the Holy Spirit is doing in their lives.  A space is held for honest expression, listening and exploration.  The focus is on naming life's dynamics from the perspective of spiritual and theological language.  Where is God in specific life experiences?  Since Elsa has done extensive study in psychology, sometimes categories and language borrowed from that discipline is illuminative, particularly that of Family Systems Theory, Myers-Briggs Personality Inventory and Dream Work.  The Enneagram is also found to also be a helpful tool.
