Most of us work, many of us at jobs which we may find stressful. Research indicates that hitting the “reset” button helps us work better.
In my experience as an educator, pastor, retreat leader, focusing practitioner and spiritual guide, my work has been to companion those who are seeking: to create the space in which the deeper questions can be asked. Often those questions revolve around change, identity, and vocation, or right action. Helping you to discover your own brilliant and unique potential, discerning with you the why and why not, and witnessing your growth is my purpose, and my joy.
