Spiritual Director and Supervisor
Availability: Accepting new directees and supervisees. Please contact me for office hours.
Denominational affiliation: My church experience has ranged from Baptist to Presbyterian to Methodist to Vineyard and, finally, to the Episcopal tradition in 2009. I’m grateful to have been nurtured in my faith journey by all these denominations and by people from other faith backgrounds as well.
Specialties: I provide individual and group spiritual direction, and supervision of spiritual directors, online, by phone, and in person at my home. I work especially with those who have been hurt by the church, those who are grieving, those who are experiencing serious or chronic illness, those who are providing care for a loved one, those who are in recovery from an addiction or other disorder, and those who are embarking on spiritual disciplines or retreats, such as the Ignatian Exercises, as well as those who are trying to discern their next steps in a life transition. I enjoy working with both clergy and laypeople.
Personal information: I love interacting with nature—hiking in redwood forests, biking at a contemplative pace, kayaking, birdwatching, stargazing, and sharing these experiences with friends. I also enjoy playing pickleball outdoors year-round. When I can’t be outdoors, I’m mostly working part-time in high-tech publishing, providing spiritual direction and supervision, listening to lively music, and reading books and poetry about spiritual formation.
