We love because he first loved us.
I John 4:19

Restoration for the Heart, Mind, Body, Soul

The extravagance of God’s love moves me deeply. God’s love extends to all humanity. 

My role as a spiritual director is to accompany you on your faith journey. As fellow pilgrims we will make our way to the God who calls us beloved.  Regardless of what path we have been on or where we are in our journey we can encounter God through Jesus. We can also interact with God through the Holy Spirit. We may identify God as the Shepherd or Lord, the Divine, or the Holy One.  Our experience of God knows no bounds.  

Our focus will be based on your individual needs and experiences. God's love, forgiveness, and compassion embrace us all. Help, comfort, and assurance can be found in the God who cherishes us. Working together, we can build a more fulfilling life in the light of God's love and compassion. God, Jesus, the Holy Spirit will be our spiritual director, our teacher, and our shepherd. 

Come as you are. Come when you are ready. The one who calls you the beloved will always wait for you.
