Anne Richardson

    As a Spiritual Director, it brings me great joy to come alongside others who desire to draw closer to and experience more of God in their lives.  Some years ago,  I was searching for a deeper relationship with God. I felt something was missing and that there was more meaning to life. This led me to Spiritual Direction, where I discovered how much God truly loves and desires an intimate relationship with me. After retiring as an audiologist, I became certified as a Spiritual Director. I moved from helping people hear their external world to listening to their internal world. I approach spiritual direction more like spiritual companionship, offering encouragement and listening, and asking open-ended questions to help one draw closer to God.


    I am also a survivor of childhood molestation. Although therapy was necessary and insightful, deeper healing has come from Jesus, the Wounded Healer. My passion is to see people become more free internally, to be the person God created them to be. With a desire to share my healing journey, I created a workbook called Not Alone and have been leading trauma groups for women.


I also have experience in:


  • Supervision for spiritual directors

  • Ignatian Spiritual Exercises

  • Dream Work (Hayden Institute)

  • Silent Retreats

  • Group Spiritual Direction


    I know what it is like to long for a deeper relationship with God. I know what it is like to long for deeper healing and freedom from trauma. There is hope for you. Please contact me to come alongside you on your journey with God.
