During a transitional phase in my life, I realized that I hungered to know God in a deeper, more experiential way.  Pursuing that desire, I began seeing a spiritual director and my journey of discovery of God and myself began to open in new and richer ways.  A year later I enrolled in a 2-year program of spiritual formation and direction training through Christian Formation and Direction Ministries (CFDM, San Diego).  In 2008, I completed the program with a certificate in the Art of Christian Spiritual Direction.  I believe that God has called me to be a spiritual director and it is my pleasure and joy to meet with a directee and accompany them through the up’s and down’s of their life journey, experiencing God’s presence in the midst of their hurt, growth, trauma, healing, and celebration.

I’ve been in leadership in women’s ministries, Bible studies, mentoring, and writing and leading reflective retreats at my church.   I am married and have one grown son.  I enjoy hiking, gardening, coffee with a friend, and reading a good book.

I am available for individual direction (in my home or via Skype), group direction or reflective retreats.  Contact information: or 619.823.9777.
