Pastoral Care | MA
Come unto me all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.
– Matthew 11:28-30
Kate provides pastoral care for adult individuals seeking practical sabbatical in the midst of everyday life. Kate offers a confidential space to listen, process, and discern; she integrates Scripture, prayer, and presence.
Jesus is our Rest — and we are not designed to carry our burdens alone (Galatians 6:2, Luke 10:1, Ecclesiastes 4:12). There are seasons when we need care, connection, and containment that is accessible—hope that meets us where we are and helps us get to our next step.
Pastoral care services are not health care services; pastoral care is designed to work in tandem with primary care providers and licensed mental health clinicians — not as an alternative/substitute. Kate refers to licensed professionals/clinicians for mental health services and is happy to help you get connected to a good-fit clinician for appropriate care.
Kate creates an inclusive space for individuals seeking care and support no matter where they are on their faith journey—struggling, forming, healing, deconstructing, doubting, wrestling, thriving, seeking, questioning—or all of the above. She believes that human flourishing is possible when the whole of our being is in submission to Jesus Christ, but understands that this is an on-going, life-long process. You are welcome to come as you are.
