Hi, I'm Sharad Yadav

I’m a graduate student in counseling psychology with 25 years of pastoral experience and formal training in spiritual direction. It has been my life’s work to walk alongside those who suffer with emotional and existential pain. I hope to be able to offer the empathy, learning and personal freedom that has come from my own bruised-but-healing humanity. 


“As a pastoral counselor his non-anxious presence, deep listening, elicitive "teach me" approach and understanding, have companioned me through some very stressful times. I highly recommend Sharad. His calling, passion, skills, and gifts are worthy of your time and investment in reconciling life's brokenness with the need for personal courage and hope.”
Tony R.
“I was going through it, my parents had finalized their divorce and in the midst of a pandemic I couldn’t have felt more alone and confused with my own thoughts and feelings. I met with Sharad once a week and I’ve never looked forward to something more. The environment and safety that he provided made my emotions feel justified and gave me a place hurt and to heal.”
Silas J.
“Spiritual direction with Sharad has been a profoundly healing experience. His gentle questions and hilarious insights have helped dismantle my assumptions about myself and God, opening me to hear the Word that Jesus has been trying to speak to me all along.”
Joel S.
