Faith & Spiritual Exploration

Counseling in Charleston, South Carolina.

Find meaning in the world.

Hillary McBride talks about how faith and spirituality, because they are our way of finding meaning in the world, weave together our entire existence. She says that all trauma becomes spiritual trauma when our spiritual beliefs cloud our ability to see things for what they are. We are meaning-making creatures and need to make sense of things. If we’ve been taught a way of making sense of things that is now confusing, rigid, misaligned with our values, or even causing us to feel ashamed of who we are, we need to find a new way to make meaning. This process can feel disorienting and scary.

Faith & Spiritual Exploration

At Kinship, we hold space for all of the emotions that come along with exploring your faith or spiritual beliefs and how they have impacted the many areas of who you are. Therapy is a safe space to show up as you are and ask questions you haven’t felt allowed to ask. In fact, we want you to ask the hard questions. We can guarantee that we don’t have all the answers but have probably asked some of the same questions ourselves. Those moments of shared humanity when you “say the thing” out loud and someone can respond “me too” are moments that break down shame. 

There is so much surrounding faith and spirituality that can cause people to avoid these topics but for most people who live in the south, some part of your life has been impacted. We are with you and want to help you carefully look at the impacts in a way that feels authentic to you and your own story and path. Holistic spiritual therapy can be a place for you in Charleston that allows you to explore this path.

Research around faith and therapy makes it clear that incorporating faith and spirituality into therapy if it is part of the client’s life is an important part of the process. All of the therapists at Kinship will follow your lead on this. We are equipped and willing to integrate faith and spirituality at any step of the way but will carefully and sensitively let you decide what that means.

We take an integrative and holistic psychotherapy approach, seeing you as a whole person: mind, body, and soul. Kinship means connection and through it we find belonging that is essential for living wholeheartedly.
