I write to listen. In reading, may you feel heard in a way that helps you name your passions, quandaries, and convictions on the faith journey. As a psychotherapist and spiritual director, the experience and strength of others informs my writing; yet, my own vulnerability plays an important part, for more than advice from experts, serious people of faith need resonance with fellow travelers. As you read my work, may we face our challenges together in God’s compassionate presence rather than in a private dressing room where we try in vain to make ourselves presentable to God at an appointed meeting. God meets us where we are.

My published works include A Wakeful Faith: Spiritual Practice in the Real World, and The Ancient Laugh of God: Divine Encounters in Unlikely Places. Currently, I am writing a manuscript provisionally entitled, Blessed at the Broken Places: Reclaiming Faith and Purpose with the Beatitudes. This book will help readers hear God blessing them personally through the Beatitudes when they feel least worthy of blessing.
