About

I see 3 types of clients: private, organizational, and those experiencing literal homelessness. Most private clients have some kind of spiritual homelessness, or other trauma, leaving them in a liminal space; without an easy relationship with a particular denomination, deity, or faith. Still, they seek meaning, community, even hope. Some came from evangelical backgrounds, or fundamentalist cults. Many identify as LGBTQIA2+. Many are People of Color. Some work as priests, pastors, spiritual directors, or took religious vows. Most organizational clients are justice-engaged, usually in homelessness; seeking to avoid or heal Burnout.
Liminal means in-between. Most of my clients live in-between in some way; both and. I do too. I am not a counselor or therapist, nor a pastor or priest, but I occupy an important 3rd space between those. I am both a Researcher, and a Clinician. I am both a Spiritual Director, and a Clinical Traumatologist. I am both a Healer, and a Trauma Survivor. Both and.
More on how I'm in-between: I was a writer for 20+ years. I hold: an M.A. (Sociology & Anthropology); certifications in Clinical Traumatology, Compassion Fatigue (Burnout + Secondary Trauma), Field Traumatology, Spiritual Direction, Retreats, Mindfulness, and the Enneagram. With additional trainings and supervision in: MBSR, SoulCollage, and Parts work.

The Grief Gathering

A monthly evening to share sorrow & solace. "If you live with grief," writes Jan Richardson, "you know what a wild mix it can be -- how terrible and how graced it is, how it opens our hearts even as it breaks them." You might grieve a lost loved one, marriage, career, loss of identity, transition, anything. The evening may include loss, anger, tears, & pain; sadness & struggle; community & companionship; rebirth & renewal; hope, grace, &/or laughter. There will be no rules about how to grieve. There will always be listening. There will always be cake. The short version: No Rules, Just Cake.
