I am a certified spiritual director and am currently accepting directs for spiritual direction or companioning. The process of spiritual direction is perhaps the most important journey anyone can undertake. So, no matter if you are rich or poor, female or male, black or white, straight or gay, professor or janitor, Catholic or Muslim, famous or not so much, each of us has the very DNA of the Divine Presence within our being. The journey is to recognize it in ourselves and then we can recognize it in everyone.
My human being came into existance in Grafton, North Dakota. I grew up in south Minneapolis, went to the seminary in Mt. Calvary, WI, and graduated from the University of Detroit. I am a former Capuchin Franciscan Friar, a certified spiritual director, pastoral minister, prayer and worship leader, mentor and coach, certified Enneagram trainer, and husband. I am a four on the Enneagram, INFJ on the Myers Briggs, romantic, daydreamer, and photographer. My spiritual journey has been deeply influenced by Franciscan, Benedictine, Carmelite, and Ignatian spirituality. I do not have a PhD, I am not ordained, I’ve never written a book, and I don’t have all the answers. If you are looking for credentials, I have just one – I live and have being because I am loved by God. What else is really needed? When all is said and done, I simply hope to live my life as a sign of hope and faith in the endless gifts of God’s mercy and love. If you are seeking a professional spiritual director or companion on your spiritual journey, please be in touch with me. I would look forward to accompany you.
