I completed my training for spiritual direction in 2007 and have been actively companioning others on their spiritual journeys whether it is one on one or in groups. I am also a Supervisor for Directors in training and receive supervision monthly. When I see people one on one, I usually invite them to my lakefront home in Howey in the Hills, FL, a small town outside of Orlando, easily accessible by highway and also comfortable offering zoom access. I consider myself a Christian but I have explored and continue to explore all faith traditions. I continue to serve my training program, Audire Spiritual Direction Formation Program, as a teaching assistant in year two of the 3 year program. I have trained with Shalem to provide Group Spiritual Direction and Clearness Committees. I participate in many classes that expand my knowledge of the work of spiritual companionship. I am a wife, mother and grandmother and I recently retired from a 35 year career in healthcare administration.. You may contact me via telephone at 352.504.6104 or via e-mail at [email protected] – It would be my great joy to travel this journey with you..
