My Ministry

Spiritual Direction, Pastoral Counselling, Life Coaching, Mentoring, Inner Healing

I have been companioning with people for nearly thirty-three years in many different contexts — as a missionary/teacher, counselor, pastor, spiritual friend and director. As someone who has a broad-range of ministry experiences (from lead pastor to high-school teacher), I am comfortable with mystery, paradox, and the messy realities of faith and ministry. I have been shaped by sages, like: Henri Nouwen, Dallas Willard, Parker Palmer, Gordon Smith, Leighton Ford, and others.

I offer spiritual direction, life coaching, mentoring, pastoral counseling, or inner healing for a variety of people from a wide-range of backgrounds and cultures.   I am also competent walking alongside people who have experienced or who are experiencing significant trauma in their journey. I offer inner healing sessions for those who sense God’s leading in this direction.

Spiritual direction provides a sacred space to nurture greater intimacy with God with the goal being an ever-increasing capacity to live your life as Christ would. It has been my great joy and privilege to assist others in discerning God’s activity in their journey and in responding to these invitations. My passion is to equip and enable people to dwell more fully in the love of God that is found in Christ Jesus, through the power of the Holy Spirit.

I am experienced in facilitating one-on-one direction, group direction, spiritual formation retreats, and the Ignatian exercises in daily life for a variety of people from a wide-range of backgrounds and cultures.

I have a doctorate of ministry in spirituality and leadership from Fuller Theological Seminary and received spiritual direction training from Tyndale Seminary. I enjoy exploring nature, cooking and savoring ethnic foods, travelling, reading, visiting friends, watching action-packed movies and spy shows, continually learning, and eating chocolate and strawberries. I especially enjoy being surprised by God as people are set free to live with greater ease and delight in Christ’s kingdom. I’d love to be a spiritual friend to you on you particular adventure with God.
