Our Spiritual Directors are available to accompany you in a process of reflection and response rooted in the sharing of your own sacred stories and spiritual issues.
Through friendly and compassionate listening and gentle inquiry, spiritual direction helps awaken you to the Divine in all of life and helps you to notice God’s presence in the moments of daily life. If you are interested in spiritual direction, please contact any of the following Tau Center trained and Certified Spiritual Directors below.
I am a certified Spiritual Director and Healing Touch practitioner. I use energy work as a tool for spiritual direction. Those who come for spiritual direction also receive various techniques for keeping their energies in balance.

As a Spiritual Director, I am honored and humbled to walk with someone on their spiritual path and see the process as facilitating one's journey back to self. My areas of special interest are spirituality, women's issues, burn-out and cancer.
Spiritual direction is a contemplative, confidential space to share your deepest longings, frustrations, prayers and sense of purpose.
I was recently commissioned in spiritual direction through the Christos Center for Spiritual Formation and am humbled each time I enter a companioning relationship through spiritual direction to experience the power and grace the Holy Spirit brings into our time.
We need someone who encourages us when we are tempted to give it all up, to forget it all, to just walk away in despair… We need someone who can suggest to us when to read and when to be silent, which words to reflect upon and what to do when silence creates much fear and little peace.– Henri Nouwen
