About Me

As I move into the full maturity of my life, my primary calling is to serve as a spiritual director and leader of contemplative practices at the intersection of Christian and Buddhist practices. ​I seek to create a safe and sacred space for my directees where they can be their true selves and reflect on their encounters with the divine, however they name and experience it. I believe that every person is the image of God, irrespective of gender identity and expression, or whom they love.
