Why journey alone?

Whether life feels more like an exciting adventure, a gloomy assignment or somewhere in between, it can be very helpful to have a companion to provide encouragement, accountability, and assistance with navigating and processing the inevitable twists and turns of one’s life journey.

I am able to provide that specialized companionship through spiritual direction, coaching, or a strategic combination of the two.

My spiritual direction and coaching practices overlap in notable ways. Both modalities feature:

  •       ● Safe and nonjudgmental atmosphere
  •       ● Warm welcome to all, regardless of faith, gender, sexual orientation, age, race, ethnicity
  •       ● Assurance of complete confidentiality
  •       ● Focused listening and powerful questions
  •       ● Opportunity to integrate both positive and negative experiences into a more whole sense of Self

While coaching and spiritual direction overlap significantly, they also differ in approach and potential results. Learn more about the specifics of each via the links to the left. Please take a moment to consider the information here, and contact me if you have any interest in exploring how spiritual direction, coaching, or a strategic combination of the two might enhance your life journey. After all, why journey alone?

"I am thankful for the spiritual practice of Spiritual Direction. Through Kili's gentle guidance and probing questions, I am able to reflect upon and glean where God is present in my life.
