Counseling for Spiritual Wellness in Vancouver, WA
Spiritual Health and Wellness
Spiritual wellness is the culmination of our hearts, bodies, relationships, thoughts, faith, beliefs, and deepest desires. Spiritual health and growth can also be accompanied by spiritual suffering and adversity. When we go through events in our lives that are “soul injuries,” they can become spiritual crises. We can ask questions like: “Why is this happening to me?” or “Where is God (or a Higher Power) now?” These moments are often monumental in changing our life course direction. It is imperative to dive into these questions and listen to these higher callings for your life, joy, growth, change, trust, faith, and happiness. Your life compass can change dramatically when you commit to these dynamic, vulnerable steps of growth and change.
Soul Injury and Spiritual Health
A “soul injury” is a penetrating wound that feels crushing to our spirit, body, emotions, faith, thoughts, careers, relationships, financial stability, quality of life, or sense of self. It feels like it has stolen a huge part of your life and has left you feeling empty, questioning, bargaining, and in despair.

Guided Imagery and Music:
Faith Based Counseling:
At Compass, the counselors are open and encouraging of your faith, beliefs, and values. We believe these parts can help aid in spiritual healing and health, and we love integrating spiritual work into sessions whenever clients prefer this method. Spiritual/Faith based counseling can be integrated in individual counseling as well as in family and couples counseling.
Somatic Yoga Therapy and Mindfulness:
Utilizing meditation, prayer, and mindfulness based practices can help clients slow down their minds and focus on their higher powers. These practices help clients to gain perspective on suffering, and create healthy feelings in the present moment. Focusing on these powerful, positive practices can dramatically alter your spiritual sense of self. Shannon Kroenke, LICSW, MT-BC, CYT-200 specializes in these techniques and can teach you how to integrate these practices into your life.
