Spiritual & Interfaith Therapy in Chicago

At Charism Counseling Center, we support clients in the process of recognizing and exploring the context spirituality and faith play in the understanding of their individual lives, relationships and the world, as a whole. Spirituality and faith can serve as guiding principles for personal views and beliefs. Both religious and spiritual practices provide solace and connection—making them important topics to explore within a therapy setting.

We take an interfaith and interspiritual approach to supporting clients, recognizing the universality in our shared spiritual and religious experiences. All religious and spiritual traditions are honored, valued and respected.

Although we believe in the power of spirituality and faith and to positively impact and transform lives, we also understand they can be a source of confusion and wounding. We offer clients an opportunity to identify and process experiences of faith-based trauma and wounding.

“At any moment, you have a choice, that either leads you closer to your spirit or further away from it.”
