About Me

Hello, I am Reverend Steve Reddy.
I am a Spiritual Care Provider based in Exeter, New Hampshire.

     The need to belong is among the most fundamental human needs. We seek a sense of belonging in various aspects of our lives, be it at work, in religious institutions, social gatherings, or engaging in meaningful discussions with family, friends, and peers. We form connections through human interaction and conversation – either via intimate one-on-one discussions or within small group settings. Community can be found in spaces of all sizes, whether it’s through shared learning experiences in a classroom or finding solace within the walls of a vibrant, praise-filled church.

     Spiritual connection is a hunger, a longing in our society. I sense this yearning to belong has grown stronger, particularly in the wake of the post-pandemic era. Unfortunately, our bonds with others can often feel strained, and navigating conversations without causing offense can become a challenge.

     Spiritual Care provides a sanctuary for learning, growth, and the exploration of life’s complexities, where we can find acceptance – without awkwardness or judgement. It provides a sanctuary to delve into self-discovery and fosters a sense of safety.

     Thus, my goal is to answer the question: how do we rebuild (or reignite) our authentic selves? The idea of spirituality is universal, and encompasses diverse perspectives, yet centers around the notion of embracing the concept of a connection to something greater than ourselves, or seeking a quest for meaning in life. It is a universal human experience, touching every individual. People may describe spiritual encounters as sacred, transcendent, or simply as a profound sense of vitality and interconnectedness. Spirituality, however, is unique to each person. I believe that we are all inherently spiritual beings on a human journey. We need to ask ourselves what experiences have led us astray from our innate spiritual essence. My goal is to assist individuals in finding this spiritual essence, revealing their true, authentic selves.

     I am based in Exeter, New Hampshire, and my services extend to various towns in the Seacoast area, including Portsmouth, Hampton, Rye, Durham, and Dover. And via the magic of telehealth, I can work with any client, anywhere. I specialize in providing grief education, end-of-life care, spiritual direction, and facilitating conversations on spiritual care. I invite you to initiate a discussion and explore how I can support you in reconnecting with your spiritual self.
