I have served as a Covenant pastor for 25 years, and I was trained as a spiritual director in the Franciscan Tradition. I have a doctorate in Christian Spirituality from Fuller Seminary, where my dissertation was focused on mindfulness in Christian contemplative practices. I see my role as a companion in listening for the movements of the Holy Spirit in a person’s life. It is fulfilling for me to be a part of the Spirit’s inspiring, renewing, and healing work in the hearts and lives of individuals.
