Travis Hutchinson BA, MACM, MDiv
Travis has walked with others in counselling and spiritual direction for over two decades in a variety of roles in churches, hospitals, and other organizations. He values meeting seekers where they are spiritually and accompanying them in becoming more attuned to the presence of God in all aspects of their lives. Through attentive listening, reflective practices, and spiritual formation exercises, he invites others to explore a deeper relationship with themselves, others, and the Divine in a safe and confidential space. This includes journeying with others through life’s most important and difficult events and passages and assisting them in framing those experiences with dignity and purpose.
