Welcome to Integrative Soul CareSeekers of wholeness are discovering what sages of old have known and current brain research affirms at every turn – our essential selves are an intricately woven tapestry of mind, body, heart, and spirit.
Many, in facing the painful realities of life, experience confusion, anxiety, hurt and loneliness. These emotions can be particularly intense if trauma and/or neglect have been a part of one’s story, and have never been processed and resolved. Kind, thoughtful, experienced care is needed to find relief and healing.
My name is Wesley Linam. I am a licensed professional clinical counselor and spiritual director. I graduated from The Seattle School of Theology and Psychology in 2007 with a Masters in Counseling Psychology and a Certificate in Spiritual Direction. I have been a licensed professional clinical counselor (LPCC #0188701) in New Mexico since 2008 as well as a member of Spiritual Directors International (SDI).
At Integrative Soul Care, I use both my understanding of the psychology of the self, and the spirituality of the self, to help clients reach a place of deeper connection to themselves, God and others.
Lifespan Integration TherapyIn my graduate program, I studied relational and depth psychology and use this knowledge in my practice. Since 2007, I have increasingly employed a therapeutic technique called Lifespan Integration (LI). I have attended and facilitated numerous trainings and am currently a certified LI therapist, an LI consultant and most recently, have become an LI trainer. Over the years, I have consistently witnessed clients rapidly find healing and wholeness with a few sessions of LI, where talk therapy alone would have taken years. Because of the brevity and efficiency of LI therapy, I primary employ it in serving clients at Integrative Soul Care.
Lifespan Integration is a powerful mind-body technique, which through a variety of protocols, brings health and healing to a person. LI is highly effective with numerous anxiety disorders, improves self- regulation, heals the mind and body from trauma memories, and helps to establish a foundational sense of self-worth. You can read more about this therapy at lifespanintegration.com.
LI sessions generally last ninety minutes, but can be longer. If you are interested in exploring whether LI may be a good fit for you, we would schedule a brief phone consultation. Often, clients may have a primary therapist and do some supplemental sessions of LI. I encourage this and would work in partnership with your primary therapist. If you are coming from out of state for LI, I require you to have a primary therapist in your home state.
LI sessions cost $150 for 90 minutes, $200 for two hours, and $300 for three hours. To schedule, please call me at 505-922-5228 or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Either way, please include your phone number.
Lifespan Integration ConsultationAs an approved LI consultant, I am able to work with Lifespan Integration therapists working toward certification. If you are trained in LI and would like to meet for consultation, I would love to meet with you either in person or via Skype.
My rates are $125 for 55 minutes or $185 for 85 minutes. To schedule, please call me at 505-922-5228 or email me at email@example.com. Either way, please include your phone number.
Spiritual DirectionI view spiritual direction as the discipline of listening to the Spirit on behalf of others, with others, toward a greater awareness of God, a growing intimacy with God, and a deeper love for one’s neighbors. I am trained in the Enneagram, an ancient form of psychologically and spiritually understanding ego, and often use the Enneagram as a helpful tool in spiritual direction.
Sessions of spiritual direction generally last an hour. Sessions begin with prayer and guided meditation and flow in and out of prayer, listening, and discussion.
I am a follower of Christ and provide spiritual direction through this lens. I mention this to be forthright about who I am, but I delight in being a companion to anyone seeking deeper spiritual connection and grounding. I regularly work with clients in the spiritual – not religious category – and am comfortable finding common language and mutual understanding of God.
Spiritual direction is usually scheduled every four to six weeks. On going spiritual direction helps to deepen one’s intimacy with God, offers spiritual clarity, and aids in discovering grace. Spiritual direction can also be offered a few sessions at a time to help in important in times of major life transition, vocational change, relational difficulty or a significant decision. Sessions of spiritual direction are $75.
At this time, I’m not able to receive new spiritual directees. If you need a referral for a spiritual director, please feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
