Two of my passions are helping others draw close to God and coming alongside those in crisis. In my calling as a chaplain and a spiritual director I get to do both. I have a heart for leaders and those who care for others. I believe those responsible for others need a safe place to search for answers or just be heard. I provide that space. I am trained and gifted to accompany individuals through difficult times as well as accompanying those seeking to find meaning in their life. Sometimes as leaders we need a compassionate presence and a listening ear, heart and mind amid the responsibilities in our lives. One of my life verses in the Bible is found in Isaiah 61:1-3.
