Profile: Jesus was named Immanuel or 'God with us', bringing God close enough to touch. As I have stumbled toward this profound truth, I have found that God is often hidden in plain sight and that Jesus is closer to us than our own heartbeat. In spiritual direction, we work together to recognize how God (as Father, Son and Spirit) is moving in your life, while seeking to identify and overcome the barriers that keep you from opening your life more fully and fruitfully to God's loving presence. This approach is rooted in the belief that God wants to be found. When we listen carefully together with open receptivity, we find that God is eager to show Himself to us in ways that are both healing, liberating and deeply transformative. I have completed a Graduate Certificate in Spiritual Direction and Directed Retreats from Creighton, a Jesuit University in Omaha, Nebraska. I have received an MA in Christian Spirituality from Creighton as well. My undergraduate work was primarily in biblical studies with a focus on the Old Testament. I was awarded a Bachelor of Arts in Christian Studies (with Distinction) from Taylor University in Edmonton, Alberta. My husband and I have also completed the program Living from the Heart through the Soulstream ministry in Calgary, Alberta. I am currently working toward a Graduate Certificate from the Theology of the Body Institute in Pennsylvania. While studying at Creighton in Omaha, my family (including my two pre-teen children) had the rare opportunity to live in residence at a Benedictine Monastery as Oblate candidates. We now live on a small farm in East Central Alberta, where we are learning to steward our land, love our neighbours and live in step with a God who comes to us disguised as our everyday lives.
