Spiritual care is a practice of presence with the intention of holding space for those facing life’s challenges or exploring life’s big questions.

“As a Spiritual Companion, I help people find their own answers to life’s big questions. It is natural for questions of purpose and meaning to arise during times of transition. I help people explore the questions and gain a greater understanding of how they find their place in the world.”
~Kristabeth Atwood, Founder, Rites of Passage, LLC
At Rites of Passage, we provide one-on-one confidential spiritual care (also called spiritual companionship or pastoral care). With 20 years of experience, Kristabeth is skilled at approaching your situation without judgment but with a willingness to be fully present to you and your life circumstances.
Whether you consider yourself very spiritual (or even religious), have been hurt by religion, or are more comfortable with a secular worldview, Kristabeth will walk with you as you explore life’s big questions and find your way along life’s journey.
Kristabeth specializes in working with people who are facing life transitions including the loss of a loved one, illness, divorce, job change, identity issues, leaving a faith tradition, relocation, and retirement. People of all spiritual and secular worldviews and gender and sexual identities are welcome.
Spiritual care sessions are held on Zoom or FaceTime. Sessions are usually scheduled monthly but can be more frequent, especially in the beginning as the relationship is formed. Sessions begin with a brief time of silence and meditation followed by open conversation utilizing the evocative approach. (Learn more about the evocative approach here.) Fees are based on a self-selecting sliding scale.
