Integrating psychotherapy and spirituality, pastoral counseling responds to the needs of the whole person.
I offer confidential support for couples and individuals, and can help you discover and strengthen your own inner gifts for healing. You will then be more able to cope with life's challenges and find your unique path to a joyous, fulfilling life.
Specializing in couples and individual counseling, family issues, recovery from grief, abuse, trauma, depression, as well as interfaith concerns and questions of vocation, I am also a certified teacher of Jewish Meditation, and can help you clarify, begin and maintain a personalized spiritual practice. All backgrounds welcome.

Shula Stevens Calmann's Groups

Mussar Study: Strengthen and Refine Your Goodness

Predating Freud, the Mussar Movement of Eastern Europe played a little-known yet important role in the development of modern Psychology. Applying Jewish ethical teachings on qualities (such as humility, patience, generosity) to the ongoing, healthy evolution of self, Mussar begins with self-reflection which leads to understanding, and then to refined behavior in relationship to self, family, friends, community and the larger world. Also bringing clarity to issues of faith and trust, the group provides a safe, supportive, dynamic environment in which to engage with this richly nuanced work. To register: (916) 442-7315 or email

More about this group

Kabbalah for Personal Growth

The Jewish mystical tradition is a rich field of study for enhancing personal development and spiritual growth. In this supportive, small group environment, we study classical Kabbalah and discuss how it can be applied practically in our lives. We also work on building a "spiritual toolbox" by learning basic meditation skills and other modalities such as sacred chant and prayer.
