Meet Laurie Wevers, LMFT(#103214) and Spiritual Director! 

1. What is your favorite thing to do in San Diego?

Taking long walks on the beach (I'm not joking ;) and watching sunsets

2. What book are you currently reading?

I'm currently in the middle of three: The Naked by Richard Rohr, The Sacred Enneagram by Christopher Heuertz, and Bitten by a Camel, by Kent Dobson.

3. What do you love about being a therapist?

I love journeying with clients who dare to trust me with their most vulnerable stories; it's an honor and a true joy. The work of a therapist is also not just a one-way street; I also enjoy learning from the vast experiences of my clients.

4. What types of clients do you work with?

My particular niche includes working with adults who have experienced some sort of trauma, but most specifically sexual abuse. When someone experiences trauma, it ripples out to other areas in the body/mind/spirit. As a spiritual director who is also trained in trauma therapy called EMDR, I am able to work with trauma using a multi-faceted approach. In addition to trauma, I work with women through issues of singleness, and with anyone needing a safe space to talk about his/her own sexuality.

5. Favorite Quote?

"Be patient toward all that is unsolved in your heart and try to love the questions themselves, like locked rooms and like books that are now written in a very foreign tongue. Do not now seek the answers, which cannot be given you because you would not be able to live them. And the point is, to live everything. Live the questions now. Perhaps you will then gradually, without noticing it, live along some distant day into the answer.”
― Rainer Maria Rilke
