Spiritual Direction Practice: A Way of Proceeding
My ministry practice focus, as an Ignatian-trained spiritual director and clinician, is cura personalis.  It's listening with you (together with the Holy Spirit) on where you sense God is drawing you; and to share what I studied from the teachings and wisdom within the Church’s spiritual tradition. Moreover, I am here to help you understand how God designed us and to care for your body, as well as your soul, for giving glory to God in a life of prayer to discover God's desires for you to flourish in service with Christ.
 
May my years of clinical experience in practice from serving patients within a foundation of ongoing studies in evidence-based well-care and stress management, and in spiritual care that is focused on the Ignatian tradition, offer you the support you are looking for.
 
As this site initially was developed to be just a place to download handouts for the university students in spiritual direction, it grew slowly into much more for my other clients and retreatants which you now see today.
I do hope you will find new ways or reminders to refresh and care for your soul. 
 
Blessings to you and all you love,
Karen
