Our Practitioners

Spiritual Support

Through the use of careful listening and affirmative prayer, our ministers  and practitioners support people who experience physical or emotional anguish, or who desire a new perspective for their lives. This is done using the teaching and principles of The Science of Mind, providing educational material and prayer. Working with a Practitioner is so valuable in helping to remove the hidden beliefs and the wounding feelings that can prevent us from accomplishing our greatest good.

Our professional CSL-licensed practitioners are available and ready to help with any type of situation.
Feel free to contact the practitioner of your choice to discuss your needs and/or make an appointment. Please scroll down for their contact information and brief, personal video clips.

We recognize that every once in a while, we are all in need of help. The Universe does not expect us to walk our life’s journey alone. Our philosophy encourages us to seek Oneness within ourselves and with the world around us – to give and to receive. To that end, we have trained professional practitioners that can assist you at times of need and aspiration.

All of the sessions are kept non-judgmental and strictly confidential. Typically, each session is one hour in duration. Though practicing  affirmative prayer (also called a Spiritual Mind Treatment) is free, there is a fee for a licensed professional’s time. The fee is negotiable with each Practitioner. Please feel free to call ahead of time to make an appointment and/or to learn about their schedule availability and fee structures.
