I believe that there is a Holy Spirit flowing in us, through us, with us, for us and in spite of us.
Please enjoy browsing the site and discovering the different services offered for you on your spiritual path. I offer Spiritual Direction for individuals and groups. I am an experienced Retreat Leader and really enjoy working alongside groups seeking that guidance. I offer ministerial and spiritual support for individuals, couples and families. I serve people “who come as they are,” this includes, multi-faith, secular, and LGBT communities. I am a non-denominational ordained Minister and Inter-Faith Spiritual Director. I have been serving in the UCC in southern California for over 25 years as a Christian Education Director and Program Specialist and started this private practice in 2012.
I have served in ministry for over twenty five years and have spent many years leading spiritual gatherings and in spiritual companionship with others. I have been trained in the Art of Spiritual Direction and have earned certification through Stillpoint – The Center for Christian Spirituality in southern California. I am a member of Spiritual Directors International. Much of my background and ministry has been grounded in education and the historical Jesus. I served on staff at Irvine United Congregational Church from 2004 to 2012 when I resigned to devote my time to this practice. While at IUCC I served as their Director of Education and Programs.

“Spiritual direction is the contemplative practice of helping another person or group to awaken to the mystery called God in all of life.” James Keegan
There are a variety of programs and retreats offered throughout the year. There is also "Awakenings," a small Spiritual Exploration Group that allows for a deeper shared experience with other pilgrim seekers.
