"Chris cares for me in a way that is sensitive to the Spirit of God. Her gentle questions give me direction and confidence to walk into spaces of raw vulnerability. She creates a place of complete safety and love; a place I can step into with my full and honest self to meet with Jesus." - Courtney
Hi! I'm Chris.
Here are a few things to know about me...
I seek to honor your journey as an unfolding spiritual adventure.
At times we might feel like we're coasting along, sailing through smooth waters. At other times, the seas are choppy, and maybe we're afraid of being swamped and drowning. Our journeys are sometimes calm and sometimes wild and unpredictable.
I receive support so I can support you. I pray. I participate in a faith community. I have a spiritual director. I study. I struggle. I triumph. I fail. I persevere. And I am here to support you as you traverse the adventure that is your own life.
I trust that paying attention to all of life, even the hard parts, is how we become ourselves.
I used to be afraid of the inevitable suffering that life dishes up. I have traversed some of the dark places myself -- and witnessed others who have traveled their own challenging terrain. I have come to know the inner wisdom that accompanies each of us into and through the valley. By exploring the terrain of your own inner life, even encounters with the brokenness of the world can reveal paths for discovering deeper joy and purpose.
I'm prepared to serve.
In 2014 I graduated from the Benedictine Spiritual Formation Program through the Benet Hill Monastery in Colorado Springs, Colorado.
I receive regular spiritual direction and professional supervision, and I adhere to the Guidelines for Ethical Conduct established by Spiritual Directors International.
