A Favorite Poem from Mary Oliver:

I don’t know exactly what a prayer is.

I do know how to pay attention, how to fall down

into the grass, how to kneel in the grass,

how to be idle and blessed, how to stroll through the fields

which is what I have been doing all day.

Tell me, what else should I have done?

Doesn’t everything die at last, and too soon?

Tell me, what is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?

With your one wild and precious life?

-From A Summer Day

Which Path is Right for Me?

At Living Water, we offer three different pathways to wellness.  Any of these may be most helpful to different people at different times.  Here’s more information about what we offer:

Spiritually Integrated Psychotherapy:

For the last ten years, Sandy has integrated spiritual growth into the psychotherapy process when it is requested by an individual. This is always a choice made by the person seeking help, and is only offered if it is important to the person. The goal of this path is twofold, emotional wellness and spiritual growth.

Spiritual Direction:

Sandy focuses on spiritual growth and relationship with God in Spiritual Direction. The term Spiritual Direction is a bit mis-leading, because what actually happens is a deeply respectful partnership in which we listen for the Loving Presence of God within and in the life of the person seeking this companionship. My training and seminary education are in the Christian Contemplative tradition, but all spiritual traditions are welcome.


Sandy is a Licensed Professional Counselor who has been providing clinical counseling for individuals, families, and groups for over 30 years. The focus of this work is emotional and psychological wellness. Depression, anxiety, trauma, grief and relationship conflicts are among the life experiences that may bring someone to therapy.
