Training & Experience: My spiritual direction course work includes, a D. Min. from Portland Seminary, (2014) in Leadership and Spiritual Formation, a M.A. from Fuller Theological Seminary, (2002), in Intercultural Leadership, Spiritual Direction via a visiting student program with Denver Seminary, while at Fuller, and a B.S. from New Hope Christian College, (1996), in Pastoral Studies. I have been practicing spiritual direction since 2002. For several years now, I have developed, and accompanied, emerging adult staff members through a vocational discernment program within the Mount Hermon Outdoor Science School that includes both group and personal direction. I also work with, clergy, lay leaders, and Sustainable Faith spiritual direction students, as well as guide experiences with the 19th annotation of Ignatius of Loyola’s Spiritual Exercises.
Denominational Affiliation: Interdenominational Christian
Specialties: I provide individual and group spiritual direction. I LOVE accompanying pilgrims through the Ignatian Exercises in daily life, and I have a huge soft spot for post-grad emerging adults.
Style: My direction style is based upon the Ignatian model, which focuses on providing help in finding God’s activity in everyday life. This includes a spirit of hospitality, as I pay close attention to your desires, rhythms, and patterns that emerge as we prayerfully reflect together on the stories of life you share.
Personal Information: The gymnasium of my own spiritual formation includes being married for the past 19 years, while raising two pre-teen children. I’m a reader of theological, social, and cultural studies, an outdoor and college sports enthusiast, avid trail runner, dog lover, and coffee enjoyer.
