Ministry Goals

As a spiritual director, I act as companion with individuals and groups seeking to deepen their relationship with the Divine. Prayerful listening and reflection allow room for the Spirit as guiding force to flow as the intended “director.” I seek to facilitate such environments for spiritual inquiry through direction sessions, communal prayer, quiet days, retreats, and the visual arts.
