“The Glory of God is the Human Person Fully Alive”  - St Irenaeus

I'll help you unpack the burdens you are carrying.

At the core of our being, we carry within us the very Image and Likeness of God. We are created for freedom, to be loved and to love and to express the fullness of who He has made us to be. Though this is our destiny, the burdens and wounds of life often weigh us down and distract us from actualizing that reality.  We were never meant to bear our burdens alone or to remain bound in the anxieties of the future or the regrets of the past.  It would be my privilege to accompany you with compassion and skill into a fuller experience of the freedom, joy and peace for which you were created.

“Man cannot live without Love. He remains a being that is incomprehensible for himself, his life is senseless, if Love is not revealed to him, if he does not encounter Love, if he does not experience it and make it his own.” St.  John Paul II

On top of more than 25 years of community life, mission and teaching experience, many of those years in Europe,  I’ve been trained by the CatholicPsych Institute’s Model of Applied Personalism (CPMAP) to be a “first responder” in mental health. While I am not a licensed therapist and cannot diagnose or prescribe medications, I am eager to listen to your story and walk together with you and the Holy Spirit towards the fullness of life He has for you.

the world needs a catholic standard of mental health

“Everyone, in fact, especially those who have heeded the divine call to follow Christ closely, needs to be accompanied personally by a guide reliable in doctrine and expert in the things of God”

~Pope Benedict XVI

Integrated Mentorship

We know how God made you, why you're stuck, and how to get you unstuck

The mentorship model I provide allows me to walk with you in full view of your whole humanity- your body, mind, and SPIRIT. We are trained by the CatholicPsych Model to understand you through the lens of Faith, Reason, and Science. This is the ONLY way to really know you, and how to help you.

A Daily Model

Accompaniment modeled after Christ should meet you in the context of your daily life, just like He does.

We help you understand and experience the work of God in your life. And even if you struggle with, or don't even believe in God, we can help you to experience how Goodness, Truth, and Beauty are pursuing you in the context of your lived life. You don't have to compartmentalize your "self-care" away from the rest of your life - I'll be with you every day, to walk with you as you are making your way through whatever real challenges are presented to you.

What are your qualifications? 

I am CPMAP Certified through the CatholicPsych Institute as part of the inaugural class. The CPMAP  integrates current psychological studies, grounded on solid Catholic anthropology and guided by sound spiritual principles to fully understand the human person in order to provide skilled and compassionate accompaniment.

I am married and have two school-aged children, and  have served in a variety of ministry and educational settings,  from foreign missions and pilgrimages, to teaching in schools, church communities, and homeschool organizations.  I am  certified as a Montessori instructor and as a catechist for Catechesis of the Good Shepherd. I have completed pre-doctoral Theology studies at the John Paul II Institute/ Pontifical Lateran University in Rome as well as hold a Bachelors degree in Mental Health and Theology from Franciscan University of Steubenville.  As a fruit of CPMAP certification, I am currently involved in launching "Integration Pilgrimages”, a unique approach to sacred travel, emphasizing the interior journey to wholeness. 

What exactly is Mentorship?

Mentorship (technically called Integrated Daily Dialogic Mentorship, or IDDM) is neither traditional counseling nor spiritual direction, but occupies a unique space in between those two fields. Mentorship is daily accompaniment, looking at you and your story as an integrated whole, examined at your pace, with the goal of finding happiness and holiness in your life.
