I think therapy at its best complements a spiritual path. It's often a precedent to or companion along a profound journey of discovery. People of various religious and spiritual varieties have used our time in therapy to clear their consciences, relate to obstacles to faith and devotion, and realize if not tame or even dance with psychological and behavioral habits -- all as a way of tilling the heart and mind so that relevant beliefs and practices can really permeate, take root, and bear fruit.
Some people seek a buddhist therapist specifically. Some people seek a mindfulness based therapist in general. Some people don't know what they want, but they're intrigued or intimidated by a sense that there's something bigger going on in their lives and the world than what's obvious or familiar. All folks in this population are asking hard questions about personal pain and spiritual balm, aiming to apply the latter to the former in a truly beneficial way.
Inevitably, awareness seekers find what they didn't know they were looking for -- the obstacles to the very peace and compassion they so want to experience and offer. There can be periods of dejection and lost heart at the unexpected forks in the road their search has led them to. I deeply respect and enjoy holding space for these types of journeys, undertaken by brave, sensitive people aspiring to do great good in all realms of life.
