Coaching for Your Life’s Spiritual Journey

Spiritual coaching is a great way to support your ongoing spiritual journey.  The practice has its roots deep in all spiritual traditions, in the realization that an experienced guide is a must when your journey takes you into the spiritual wilderness. If you feel a call to deepen, I encourage you to consider working with me as a spiritual coach.

Spiritual Coaching is found in every religious tradition and its importance is universally recognized. I listen, I watch, I mirror back what I am sensing. I use my training, my knowledge and experience, and my intuition to find where spirit is most brightly shining in you, and where it might want to emerge into greater fullness. I hold you as always already fully awake and help you to sense the awakening impulse within, as it shows up in you, moment to moment.

I am a guide and friend with whom to share the way. I try not to lead, though sometimes I can’t help but make suggestions. I believe that the path is ultimately yours to discover and yours to walk, but you need not walk the path alone. If you feel it’s time to find a guide for your journey, I hope you’ll contact me today.
