We do not live this life “fully” – alone. Our being, our questions and our experiences connect us. Creating time and space to notice, appreciate and share the wonders and challenges of ordinary life is the gift of spiritual direction. Spiritual direction provides an opportunity to explore questions and curiosities arising from everyday experiences. If spiritual direction interests you, I welcome an email so a first conversation, free of charge and with no obligation to continue, can be arranged to fit our respective schedules. Should we embark on this journey together, sessions of 55-60 minutes, often occur monthly, and are available by Zoom, phone or in person (in Edmonton or Sherwood Park, AB).


About me…

My conviction rests in an inclusive divine whose expression and invitation is LOVE. Curiosity, courage and compassion fill my life with meaning. Born into Roman Catholicism, I have been enriched by people and resources from many traditions. My growing awareness of life’s invitation to be LOVE is nurtured by practices such as imaginative contemplation, journaling, holy reading/seeing/listening (lectio/visio/audio divina), centering prayer, creative writing and the natural world. I am married and the mother of an adult son. I have worked as a journalist, in corporate communications, in campus ministry, in retreat organization and facilitation and am currently part of the leadership team for the spiritual direction training program at Providence Renewal Centre in Edmonton, AB. I accompany people through the 19th Annotation of the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius of Loyola and facilitate 30-day retreats on request. I trained as a spiritual director at the FCJ Christian Life Centre in Calgary, AB and as a supervisor for spiritual directors through Spiritual Directors International.
