Reserve Your Spiritual Direction Session

At Oasis Spiritual Direction & Retreat Center my work includes traditional one-on-one spiritual direction, counseling or coaching, as well as group work. I work with Christians, seekers and people with no faith affiliation.


Spiritual accompaniment occurs monthly for 50-minute sessions in person, through zoom, facetime or by telephone. For those needing additional support, I am available to meet bi-monthly.


Fees for spiritual direction will be discussed after the introductory visit. A sliding scale fee is available for those experiencing financial hardship.

​Contact me directly to reserve your session or to receive additional information.

Spiritual Direction...

Let's Talk About This

"Spiritual direction is, in reality, nothing more than a way of leading us to see and obey the real Director — the Holy Spirit hidden in the depths of our soul."

Thomas Merton, Trappist monk, USA


"Spiritual direction can mean different things to different people. Some people understand it to be the art of listening carried out in the context of a trusting relationship. It is when one person is trained to be a competent guide who then “companions” another person, listening to that person's life story with an ear for the movement of the Holy, of the Divine."

Rev. Jeffrey S. Gaines, Presbyterian, USA


"Spiritual direction is essentially companioning someone in his or her spiritual life. Other ways of describing spiritual direction include holy listening, spiritual friendship, sacred journeying."

Janna Larson, Roman Catholic, USA
