Get Healthy, Lead Healthy

At Soul Shepherding we feel for you because we’ve been there. We’ve hit the wall, got help, and come out the other side, learning to live and lead from intimacy with Jesus, emotional health, and loving relationships. We can help you do the same.

Where Spiritual Formation Meets Psychology

At Soul Shepherding, we provide spiritual and emotional health resources, coaching, and training to help pastors, missionaries, and all who desire to thrive with Jesus in life and leadership.

Start thriving in your life and leadership

I want personal care
and guidance.

I want space to rest, grow, and connect in community.

I want to be trained to
help others grow.

Hi, we're Bill & Kristi Gaultiere

We are doctors of psychology and the founders of Soul Shepherding. Together we have trained thousands of pastors, spiritual directors, leaders, missionaries, and coaches. Our Institute retreat gatherings feature teaching and guided experiences in Jesus-centered psychology.

We and our team of Sr. Spiritual Directors are honored to care for you as you care for others.
