I have raised four now grown and flown daughters. I’ve also served in various parish ministries, but my involvement as a minister of care serving the elderly, the sick and the dying, prepared me for my calling to the ministry of spiritual direction.
During my first class at the Hesychia School of Spiritual Direction in Tucson, I felt at home and assured that this was a ministry that God was calling me to do. I completed 150 hours of study in the spring of 2013. This wonderful ecumenical program prepared me to be open to people of all faiths and beliefs.
My own faith journey has been influenced by Ignatian Spirituality (finding God in all things), and by the work of Henri Nouwen, Joyce Rupp, and Richard Rohr. I have completed more than 25 hours of classes in the Enneagram, a valuable tool for self-awareness and change as well as a pathway to better understand and accept others.
