My first experience with a spiritual director was years ago during a significant time of transition in my life. I had been a missionary for 27 years and I was at a point in my relationship with God where I needed to pause and create space to look deeply at that relationship and at some life experiences. The process of stepping back and listening to God and to my heart with a spiritual director was–and continues to be–a profound experience and one that has unleashed me to grow into greater awareness of God and myself.

For the past 30 years I have had the privilege to listen deeply to people’s stories and help them see, feel, and respond to God’s presence and voice in their lives. Across generations and cultures I have experienced the joy of mentoring and discipling others in their journey towards deeper intimacy with God and participation in the spiritual work of reconciliation. I am both a certified Spiritual Director and certified Life Coach with Thresholds and I blend those two disciplines as I help leaders and others seek to be their very best selves.

I would consider it an honor to accompany you as you seek to discern the movements of God in your heart and respond to the Divine voice in your life.

My husband Rob and I currently have the joy of leading a neighborhood-based faith community in our San Diego neighborhood, Golden Hill. I love spending time with our three grown children, our three children-in-law, and our seven grandchildren. I also enjoy reading, taking walks with friends, and participating in our neighborhood Zumba class.
