I offer contemplative spiritual guidance to individuals seeking to live an authentic life. Through a process of deep, empathetic listening, insightful questioning and reflection, and creating an atmosphere of safety and trust I will help you discover your own unique truth, cultivate the capacity for inner peace, and to fully accept the belief that you are valuable and your life is meaningful.
I am a member of Spiritual Directors International and I abide by their code of ethics. I became certified as an interfaith spiritual director through the Urban Spirituality Center in Portland, Oregon in 2016. I hold a Master of Arts degree in Applied Pastoral Theology from Marylhurst University. I am also a mixed-media artist and hold a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from Southern Oregon University. I am fascinated by the intersections of art and spirituality and believe that art can be a powerful tool in leading us deeper into the experience of being human. For more than 12 years I have also worked in the field of special education and the students I have worked with have been some of my greatest teachers along the journey. My most illuminating experiences of the Divine have been in the face of great vulnerability. My spiritual path has been rooted in the mystical tradition of Christianity, but I have also been deeply influenced by Zen Buddhism, as well as the mystics of all the world's major religious traditions.
