About Us


Our mission is to provide resources to encourage, nurture, and engage the mystery of the human journey through psychotherapy, spiritual direction, body therapies, and related educational experiences.


The Claret Center was founded in 1978 by Marty Kirk, C.M.F., member of the Claretian Missionaries and Mary Ellen Moore, member of the Society of Helpers, pioneers in holistic support for both personal and spiritual growth. Our guiding principles include broad and deep professionalism and a spirit of welcome to all. Our therapists, spiritual directors, and body-centered practitioners are dedicated to excellence and steeped in an ethic of personal concern and professional growth.
