I was commissioned as a Spiritual Director from the Sister's of Christian Charity in May 2012. Prior to graduation, the practice of healing, insight recovery, and ego quieting were offered through private sessions and facilitated retreats. I am a student of the lives and writings of the Saints, wise teachers and Holy Scripture. In my practice, New Hope & Healing, many have been guided through the dark night of the soul, and have found healing.
Divorce is devastating to the self and family. Divorce affects the entire being: body, mind, spirit and emotional health. Anger, fear, and disappointment can cripple your movement toward a new life. Divorce is a division—where there was once love and unity—something intense and disruptive occurred to bring about a breach of trust and the breaking of peace. The smiles stopped and suffering started!
If you have taken the time to read through this message, you may be in a transition of divorce, “in between”, or uncertain about tomorrow. My prayer for you is to not allow negativity and bitterness to blind you and block you. You can choose instead a clear-minded calm—it can be done, even through a time of such profound change. It is hard to go it alone spiritually and functionally, so right now, in this moment, you can take the steps to build a team that will uplift and support you.
Today, if you are contemplating divorce, in the process of divorce or suffering from divorce, consider receiving discerning help & guidance toward new life and the return of inner peace.
|"After almost a decade of spiritual healing I do not know where I would be without the guidance and direction of Christine. She has taught me to live in faith and not in fear anymore. I have rediscovered God through this process and have reduced my anxiety level. I know now that all things are possible with God and hope to see this reflected in my children" -- Anonymous Client
|"I have a unique experience with Christine. I worked with her years ago, and then life took me on another path that would become very complicated and difficult. After 5 years of having ENOUGH I've come back to New Hope and Healing to pick up where I left off on my journey with God. Christine is one that teaches you how to get through the door to the other side. I chose to re-open it, because life without spiritual direction is a dead end. I'm still in the thick of my storm but Christine has been my soundest voice throughout. Even though this is the most trying time in my life, I am free. Forever grateful to Christine. She is a healer that is light years ahead of other therapists, counselors, spiritual directors etc. Buckle up!" -- Anonymous Client
"The process of going through a divorce can be a long and harsh journey. Christine helped me place both day-to-day challenges and major divorce events in context by keeping me focused on the power of the spiritual path. Through her guidance, Christine taught me that any challenge can take you to a new level of growth and freedom if approached with the right mind and heart.
Now on the other side of divorce, I look back with a sense of peace and satisfaction that the choices I made through the spiritual guidance received—choices of emotions, responses to situations, how to communicate, planning for the future, and letting go—were the right ones for me and my situation. I can state with certainty that being able to hold a sense of peace through a tumultuous divorce is a priceless gift. The outcome of this divorce resulted in positive family relationships, including a co-parenting agreement instead of an abrupt division that could have proved traumatic. This result could only have been possible through spiritual exploration and compassionate, patient coaching." -- Anonymous Client
|Healing requires courage. However, to have faith and hope as well, supports the healing process. Christine as a spiritual director, gives guidance based in wisdom, compassion and spiritual truth. She offers you the tools to build your faith and hope during your time of transformation. -- Susan, psychotherapist from Morristown
