With roots in the United Church of Canada and branches spread wide through ecumenical experience, I am comfortable accompanying seekers from all traditions and backgrounds. A graduate of the Presence Program of Providence Renewal Centre, I have been a spiritual director since 2002, and I hold a Master of Arts in Spirituality and Liturgy from St. Stephen’s College. Assured of confidentiality and non-judgment, freed from agendas and expectations, held in sacred space around us, between us and within us, you can freely share with me the questions closest to your heart and together we can attend to the eternal Love, Light and Wisdom of the Holy One woven into the particulars of your unique story. My spiritual direction work is enhanced by knowledge of the Enneagram, having been privileged to study at the Enneagram Institute of Stone Ridge, New York, with Don Riso and Russ Hudson, leaders in the field. As well, I have training in Systems Constellations, a profound healing modality inviting awareness as to issues arising from family of origin, even ancestors. Engagement with universal truths through numerous courses in energy work and exploration of Native spirituality with gifted teachers has deepened my Trinitarian faith and brought reverence for the interconnectedness of all of creation. Employment in the court system for over 30 years, rather than darkening my view of humanity, cultivated the capacity to tenderly receive all parts of your story with openness and compassion. To expand my capacity to journey with people in all stages of life, I also completed a certificate in grief support with Jane Symington of Taking Flight International and am currently undergoing training in end-of-life guidance. I am the mother of four grown children and grandmother of two.
