Baya Clare, CSJ ~ 651-600-5990 ~

The primary focus of spiritual direction is always a person’s deeper relationship with God, or however they name God or Higher Power. Spiritual direction is about helping people tell their sacred stories. My role is to listen and reflect back what I hear.

I have 15+ years of experience working with young people ages 18-35, individually and in groups, as they have navigated life choices, vocation decisions, and spiritual questions in university, prison, and work settings. Many of the people I see are on journeys of decision-making, launching and commitment. Some are working the 12 Steps and come here for their 5th Step. Some find themselves living into a new normal after loss or illness.

I have training as a Spiritual Director from the Spiritual Direction Certificate Program, along with an M.A. in Theology from St. Catherine University in Saint Paul, Minnesota.

I mainly see people at Carondelet Center, 1890 Randolph Avenue in St Paul, which is next door to St Catherine University, but I am open to meeting anyplace in the Twin Cities metro area, and I can also travel within the southern half of Minnesota and western Wisconsin.

Please feel free to call me at 651-600-5990 or email me at if you have any questions or want to set up an appointment.
