San Antonio Community Resource Directory
The Overflow Life (Faith / Christian )

I am a mainline Christian with a bit of a progressive lean. I’ve been married to my favorite person for over 20 years and have two amazing adult daughters. I love to travel, experience different cultures, learn, and try new things. I earned my Bachelor of Science in Nursing from Azusa Pacific University and worked as a hospice nurse for over 15 years. I served for many years as a lay staff member in a local church, leading our community in missions and outreach. I am a trained NAMI (National Alliance on Mental Illness) Family to Family teacher and partner with counselors in caring for my directees who live with a mental illness. I bring my years of caring for those in life transitions, suffering, and grief, along with my love for those struggling to remain in the Christian community during these difficult times to each Spiritual Direction session.

Spiritual Direction is described in many ways: mentoring, sacred companioning, holy listening, or soul friend.

I welcome clients from all (or no) faith backgrounds and wish only to help you be you. I have a Christian background and tend to use the words God or Holy Spirit to refer to that Being which is greater than, beyond, and within us. But I am open and welcome you and your beliefs as they are. You only need to have a desire for and an openness to the spiritual direction process. As a director, I am not directing your process. I am just helping facilitate the space for your spiritual process to occur.

Sessions run for about 55 minutes and the typically once each month. 

We will begin with a short time of silence, or prayer, to help center ourselves and become fully present.

I will mostly listen during our time. If you don’t have anything specific you’d like to talk about, that’s okay. I may direct our time by asking a question or two, or even allowing for some silence - which is just some space for both of us to rest and to listen.
