Bethany has a calm demeanor, an open mind, a judgment-free space, and love. Also gentle nudges and challenges. She is a fine spiritual director and those under her guidance are blessed to have her.
I especially appreciate her gifts of deep listening. She is adept at discerning the direction I am heading, and then gently guides me there without pushing. She brings such kindness, acceptance, and generosity to her work.
Her love and passion show through as well as her knowledge. I have enjoyed this journey (even with the growth pains) and it truly helps to see that I am normal with my spiritual journey.
Bethany brings deep listening – I feel that she really understands what I am saying. She anticipates my needs – everything she says exactly answers my questions and concerns, and often even those I have not yet been able to formulate in my mind. She offers deep emotional connection and understanding of the soul. She is full of optimism – I always feel better and easy to move into life with all its difficult situation, people, and emotions.
I am grateful for the way in which she helps me to not only connect to my “authentic self,” but to value it. By her careful listening and responses that are infused with her broad knowledge of spiritual writers and practices and powerful stories, I feel valued and understood by her. I also appreciate that she shares from her own work and self-growth. This helps to form a true healing relationship.
