“I believe in wholistic living and rely on my faith and prayer life as I live each day. Following the call of the Spirit, I try to embrace the words of St. Paul, quoting a short section of his letter to the Ephesians: 3:14-21: ‘...planted in love and built on love, you will with all the saints have the strength to grasp the breadth and the length, the height and the depth until knowing the love of Christ which is beyond all knowledge, you are filled with the utter fullness of God. Glory be to God whose power working in us can do infinitely more than we can ask or imagine...’”

“Being on the staff at Samaritan is a joy and a blessing. My goal is to assist others to explore and grow in their awareness of their own giftedness, face their concerns, and believe that they are one of God’s beloved, while seeking counseling and/or spiritual direction. Hopefully they can then continue on in life with the tools and beliefs they need.”
