whole person wellness, rooted in Christ

about

My story…

is anchored in a life-long pursuit of God’s heart as revealed in scripture – and His progressive revelation of truth about Him and me.

After 14 years of corporate roles helping leaders and teams grow and navigate change, I had learned a lot. But, holding life’s weight, my inner person was suffering. I received the gift to step away…and entered a long soul-forming season.

Over these years, the Father’s grace through many surrendered others helped get me on a path of being renewed – caring for my whole person through…

  • counseling – safe place to explore my heart, uncovering what I needed help seeing
  • deep discipleship – progressive understanding of God’s heart and what He is up to as revealed in His Word
  • spiritual disciplines – means of opening to God’s grace – including spiritual direction
  • physical wellness – integration, strength + vitality fostered through healthy nutrition and balanced exercise.

I often say our ministry is birthed through our story. It’s true for me.

It is valuable to bring these ways together to heal and grow.

We all are perfectly created and known as whole persons (Genesis 2, Psalm 139). And all afflicted by the brokenness of the Fall (Genesis 3) – often in ways we can’t see.

It is possible to move toward greater wholeness from wherever you are today. To experience “being made new” (Revelation 21:5, 2 Corinthians 5:17). This is a growth journey – and is most fully experienced as you open to the right care for your whole person – mind, soul, body.

If you are in a place of hurt or confusion when it comes to Jesus, Christianity or church – or in a place of seeking or unawareness, I’d especially value the gift of walking with you. I deeply respect you and your perspective. Whether or not we explore spirituality in our work is up to you.

Experiences

I’ve been married for 22 years and graced with a 9 year-old son.

I’ve also had the gift of growing in a variety of contexts – all informing what I bring to care for you as needed.
