Offering Strength for the Journey
Are you spiritually curious? Are you seeking a way forward in your life with God? A spiritual director can help.
The spiritual direction relationship is a Spirit-led ministry focused on your life as a journey of discovery and growth. In direction, I offer you a safe, welcoming space in which you can slow down, breathe, reflect on your story, and receive needed sustenance for your soul, so that you can continue on in your unfolding life with God.
With a deep commitment to integrity, intentionality, and accountability, I offer you companionship along the way. It would be an honor to walk beside you.
Spiritual Life Retreats
A Spiritual Life Retreat is an opportunity for reflection, rest, and renewal. Your retreat will be shaped according to your unfolding life with God, and we offer both the space and direction. Perched above the beautiful McKenzie River and the historic Goodpasture Covered Bridge, the comfortable retreat house and unpretentious grounds invite you to step aside, enter sacred space, and find rest for your soul.
The retreat house is fully self-contained, including a full kitchen and laundry facilities. Linens are supplied and wifi is available.
I am also available to facilitate group retreats off-site. Please contact me for more information; I would love to assist you in discerning your retreat needs.
When companioning couples, my deepest desire is to foster ongoing growth by building on strengths, deepening mutual understanding, and sharpening relationship skills.
I welcome all couples and utilize the excellent materials produced and provided by Prepare/Enrich, the leading relationship inventory and skill-building program used nationally and internationally. I am a trained facilitator with 30 years of experience. For more information, visit prepare-enrich.com. Then contact me to get started.
I Offer You a Safe, Welcoming Space to Reflect On
Your Unfolding Life with God
Spiritual Companioning is a relationship of sacred trust.
As your spiritual director, I believe that both this relationship and the space in which it is nurtured are sacred. Each is created and held as I listen to the Spirit and you with attentive stillness, while encouraging you to do the same. My role in this practice involves inviting you to awaken to the Spirit’s sustaining presence in your story, carrying you faithfully to God in prayer, and assisting you in discerning and embracing abundant life in God’s love.

I am a spiritual director, retreat guide, and couples facilitator shaped by over 30 years of pastoral ministry and contemplative practice.
The values that center me in this sacred calling include:
• Hopeful trust: That God is present and active above, in, and through all things.
• Hospitality: Nurturing a welcoming, safe, and sacred space for holy listening.
• Humility: The true spiritual director is God the Spirit.
• Attentiveness: Listening to the Spirit and you with prayerful stillness.
• Integrity: Cultivating serenity and balance by attending to my own soul work.
