Connectedness Coaching is for individuals, couples, and families looking to improve their spiritual health

Caring for our spiritual health is as important as caring for our physical and mental health–if not more important. Yet, many of us do not prioritize our spiritual health or even know where to start–particularly Religious Nones. Besides my blog of research-based spiritual health tools, I offer a form of spiritual directorship called Connectedness Coaching to empower you to care for your spiritual health a lasting way.

Connectedness coaching

Looking to improve your spiritual health, but don’t know where to start? Or maybe you know where to start, but you want to dive deeper? Connectedness Coaching is a structured method for jump-starting and strengthening your spiritual health. Expect a-ha moments, an increase in joy, and a deeper sense of meaning in life.

I created my Connectedness Coaching program based on the research I conducted at UBC and Harvard (including my definition of spirituality and the Connectedness Evaluation) as well as other research from positive psychology (happiness studies), habit psychology, pastoral care, and business leadership. 

In the first session, I diagnose your current spiritual health and create a prescription customized to your beliefs, interests, and lifestyle. In our follow-up sessions, I provide a nonjudgmental and encouraging space for you to explore your progress and adjust your goals to make meaningful and lasting changes.

Connectedness Coaching is designed to be a short-term intervention that will empower you to care for your own spiritual health. Typically, clients meet with me for four sessions: a 1.5 hour first session ($150 USD) plus three 1-hour follow-up sessions ($80 USD / session) spanning one to two months. Following this, appointments are available on an as-needed basis. The default location for our conversations is online through Zoom, but in-person sessions can be requested.

Looking forward to connecting,


My Qualifications

I have a Master of Divinity from Harvard as well as a Bachelor of Arts in honors psychology from the University of British Columbia. I have studied spiritual health, positive psychology, life coaching, counseling, and pastoral care. My previous experience includes working as an interfaith hospice chaplain, a crisis line worker, and a researcher of spiritual health, happiness, and end-of-life care. I specialize in providing spiritual care for Religious Nones (i.e., those with no religious home), but I am open to working with people of all religious identities.
