Spiritual direction is a co-listening, sanctuary space to journey deeper into relationship with God, in the accompaniment of a Christian Spiritual Director.
Do you want to experience congruence between biblical head knowledge and a deeper participation with the Divine's intimate invitations?
Spiritual direction is for the brave individual who desires an integrated (mind, body, and soul) relationship with God through contemplative rhythms such as prayer, listening, reflecting truth, asking open-ended questions, experiencing delight, expressing creativity, paying attention to how God is drawing you closer to His heart, and taking courageous action from a posture of discernment.
As a spiritual director (certified through Sustainable Faith, School of Spiritual Direction), my role is to co-journey and co-listen with the directee, while always relying on God as the real director. In order to effectively sojourn and illuminate the Trinity at work in the life of the directee, I seek to integrate God’s truth, Jesus' humanity, and the mysterious work of the Holy Spirit.
During a monthly 60-minute spiritual direction session (virtually or in-person) a directee has abundant room to be heard, explore ideas about God, re-define faith language, pray, and rest in a God who sees, loves, and is FOR you.
Spiritual direction is $50 per each 60-minute session.
Wherever you are on your spiritual journey, I'm here to offer nonjudgmental listening, illuminate how God is with you, and offer grace and space!
Individuals often seek spiritual direction because they are looking for a safe space to process what they believe about God with someone who is trained to notice and affirm God's illuminating invitations and guide them to experience God on their own.
Perhaps you find yourself drawn to direction because you need to "talk out" your honest feelings toward God. Perhaps you need to be heard as you process aloud your cognitive beliefs, while redefining the truth of who He is, all within the safe company of a director.
A director is present to co-journey from a side-by-side posture and never from an elevated or superiorly spiritual place. A directee benefits from a director who points them to Jesus, truth, and the mysterious work of the Spirit.
Compassion is at the core of direction. Whether you find yourself in the wilderness or in abundance, grieving or celebrating, spiritual direction can be especially comforting when at a crossroads, stepping into the unknown, or desiring an authentic, integrated faith
If you are hungry for the Really Real, spiritual direction is a natural next step.

The first time I heard about Spiritual Direction, stubborn soul in me thought, “Uhhhhh, I don’t need anyone to DIRECT me, thank you very much.” Yet, what I have found to be true is that spiritual direction is the first place I felt free to bring my spiritual questions, desires, and longings for MORE of God. It was through direction that I fully experienced the unconditional love of God, with the gentle guidance of my director. Once experiencing direction, I sighed a huge exhale of relief and knew I wanted to offer this type of soul care. I completed Sustainable Faith's School of Spiritual Direction program and have found myself at home offering and receiving spiritual direction ever since.
During a gap year between Spiritual Direction Training, I completed the 19th Annotation under the supervision of a spiritual director. The 19th Annotation, also known as "retreat in daily life," was developed by St. Ignatius Loyola to help people deepen their relationship with God through the Spiritual Exercises. The Spiritual Exercises originally started as a 30-day retreat and are now offered as an eight-month program that includes prayer, meditation, and scripture readings of the life of Jesus. This experience drew me toward the humility of Jesus, his on-the-floor posture, and heart for the poor in spirit, which solidified my passion for offering direction even further.
My heartbeat is for those who feel unseen, who are in ministry or feeling stirred to step away from traditional church ministry, for women who are bravely stepping into healing and wholeness in their marriage, and for pioneers who desire to confidently listen and know God's voice in a sea of many voices. I take an unconditional approach as a spiritual director and nurture all parts of humanity. That said, your grief, fears, honesty, and uncomfortable experiences don't scare me at all. In fact, I welcome all of you.
