I am trained through the Still Harbor spiritual direction practicum to provide spiritual direction and accompaniment. In spiritual accompaniment, I journey spiritually with a person in a one-to-one relationship, holding confidentially what is shared in our conversations. This relationship of dedicated listening and invitational questioning creates space to notice the movements of the sacred and discern what new paths might be fruitful.
Still Harbor's program brings the particular lens of accompaniment work in support of change-makers: movement leaders, social justice workers, religious professionals, and others who are committed to the long process of building a better world for all. Knowing how challenging this work can be, spiritual accompaniment offers opportunities to look at one's relationship to self, to others, and to the greater All That Is, and then to explore where imbalance may need to be addressed or where meaning can be made.
Spiritual direction and accompaniment are about creating a space and time to be heard: most importantly, for you to hear yourself and to hear what your life is saying. It is not therapy, pastoral care, chaplaincy, or life coaching. It is an opportunity to connect to the breath of life, the shared root of "spiritual," "respiration," and "inspiration." In accompanying you spiritually, I aim to enter into the way you make meaning of your life.
Who is spiritual accompaniment for? I work with people who

want to live in alignment with their values
bring questions to explore with an open mind and heart
I enthusiastically welcome queer, trans, and LGBTQ+ folx, neurodiverse people, and people with disabilities. My Unitarian Universalist theology affirms your worth, your dignity, your wholeness and your holiness.
