Spiritual guidance is a practice of presence with the objective of helping you embrace your intrinsic worth and face life with courage, grace, and resilience.
“As a Spiritual Guide, I help people find their own answers to life’s big questions. It is natural for questions of purpose and meaning to arise during times of transition. I help people explore the questions and gain a greater understanding of how they find their place in the world.”

In addition to my professional experience, my personal journey through the joys and challenges of marriage, divorce, re-marriage, becoming a stepparent, relocation, career changes, the trauma of violence, and loss of loved ones informs my work. I bring my expertise, experience, and heart to help my clients pause, reflect, acknowledge, and embrace the transformative power of change so they can move into the next season of life with hope.
