Welcome to my site!
I am a pastor, ordained in the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) and currently serving an ELCA (Evangelical Lutheran Church of America) congregation in northeast Ohio. I’m also a spiritual director, trained in the Ignatian tradition, offering individual spiritual direction and leading retreats. I frequently teach in the Theology and Religious Studies Department of a nearby university. And (!) I do suicide prevention and mental health advocacy work.
My husband and I have been married for a long time, and are the parents of three children. In former lives, I have been an attorney, a stay-at-home mom, a church and community volunteer, and an educator. As always, I am a voracious reader, daily walker, and someone longing for more hours in the day for writing and photography.
This site contains sermons, links to other publications, information about spiritual direction and retreats, and suicide loss and prevention reflections and news. I would be delighted to hear from you if you want to make a comment or suggestion, or if you are seeking a speaker, workshop leader, or retreat director.
