soul care services

Soul care is the practice of slowing down and focusing inward so you can care for yourself and experience more connection with God, yourself, and others. It’s a way for you to tune in and discover the needs of your mind and feelings. When you enter the counseling process, we will discuss how you are caring for your soul, being, or self. If you feel you have never learned skills pertaining to the health and wellness of your soul I can provide you with practical tools and skills to increase your emotional and spiritual health.

soul care groups

I have developed and administered a soul care group utilizing Internal Family Systems (IFS) therapy and the book Boundaries for your Soul, by Dr. Kimberly Miller and Dr. Alison Cook. This is a 6-week closed group for identified clients who are participating in individual counseling and are ready to complete this group process with 6 other clients.

The group focuses on developing self-awareness, self-compassion, and healing from trauma in a safe group context. During the course of the group, clients will learn ways to care for their souls and practice mindfulness skills and guided prayers to help nurture parts of their souls. If you are interested in being a participant in the group please contact me for more information. 

This group will be offered again in Fall of 2022. If you are interested in being one of the six participants please contact me for more information.

soul care retreats

I am available to assist and lead various types of soul care retreats. Below are a few samples of retreats I have assisted in over the past few years. Please contact me to discuss your retreat ideas and I am happy to coordinate an offering to best support your group’s needs. 

Contemplative Soul Care Retreat 2020- This half-day retreat hosted by Vanessa Crisp Counseling Services, PLLC cultivated restoration and healing from a Christian and IFS perspective. During this retreat, guests practiced Christian contemplative practices and processed their experience in the safety of a group.

Annunciation of Christ Lenten Retreat 2022- I partnered with leaders and staff at Redeemer Anglican Church in Asheville, NC to assist, lead, and coordinate this Lenten retreat. During the retreat, I helped participants contemplate Mary and her annunciation while providing teachings that help participants connect with their souls. We also offered teachings and experiential prayer practices during mini break-out sessions. 

Leading Wholeheartedly Retreat 2022- Co-Author of Boundaries for Your Soul and founder of the non-profit Leading Wholeheartedly Kimberly Miller hosted her annual retreat in Claremont, California.
