I lead workshops on building self-esteem, journal writing, and developing skills for spiritual growth.
Chaplaincy is the ministry of presence, and its purpose is to provide a forum for listening as an individual expresses him or herself, especially in times of crisis, trauma, ongoing dissatisfaction, and joys and victories in life. Pastoral care provides acknowledgment and validation of an individual’s experience. It is a time-limited modality, and in most cases, it does not extend past six 50 minute sessions. The pastoral care experience can help individuals focus on their next actions and/or what meaning they have derived from a particular experience. I have completed two units of Clinical Pastoral Education, and I plan to complete two more in my journey to become a certified chaplain.

Spiritual Direction is a companionship between the seeker and the spiritual director as the individual journeys in his or her relationship with the Divine. Many times, individuals seek Spiritual Direction as they are discerning what specific direction the Divine is sending them. The time frame for Spiritual Direction can be opened ended; however, for the best possible outcome, it is recommended the seeker have specific goals set for his or her process of Spiritual Direction. The scope and duration of the Spiritual Direction is set by the seeker.
