The narrative of my spirituality is the incarnation, life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ. There is a breadth of unknown inside the vastness of the Spirit, and leaning into the unknown is primary to how I understand everything else. The incarnation keeps me Christian against all odds and the mystery of God always invites me to stay.
My Spiritual Direction practice focuses on listening, supporting you, reflecting with you on your spiritual life, and offering a prayer/practice/ritual of your choice during our time together. If you happen to be in recovery, I can listen with the empathy that comes from also being in recovery. All are welcome to reach out!
I offer Spiritual Direction for $75 per 1 hour session. I do have sliding scale spots, but they are all full at the moment.
CORE VALUES IN MY PRACTICE
I seek wisdom alongside my directees where she wills to be found, often finding her in our minds, bodies, souls, the futures we hope for, and in the histories that call us to celebration or ask us for reconciliation. Embodied theology is primary in my spirituality, because belief in the incarnation is a cornerstone of my faith.
I love working with people who are LGBTQIA+ and I believe those identities are beautiful and beloved by God. I also work with people of a variety of faith backgrounds and people who aren't sure what or how they believe anymore. I'm not telling you what to believe; I'm supporting you as you discern belief for yourself.
Through my recovery coaching, group facilitation, Daring Way training, and crisis intervention training, I've received skills on how to offer trauma informed care. Trauma can understandably affect our faith, belief, and the aching of our souls, especially trauma at the hands of spiritual institutions. I have a heart to offer healing to those struggling with trauma.
I'm a Certified Daring Way Facilitator, which means I've studied shame with Brene Brown and her team. I bring this knowledge into my work as a spiritual director, because I know how sometimes spiritual and religious messaging can trigger our shame voices and challenge our faith and identity.
