So often- as a society and as human beings- the tendency to allow our self-held beliefs hinders our ability to be open. To truly consider the world around us. And In the process, we don't allow room to see the beauty and brilliance in diversity.

Unitarian Universalist Minister / Initiate Stone Circle Wicca

I begin by offering my bio in brief. If you want the in-depth story of my journey with faith and love, from being bullied, living with bipolar illness, coming out, becoming a priestess, living in a convent, going to seminary for three years, getting ordained, and finally to living into a fuller version of my heart’s mission, that’s a little lower down.

I help people alienated from or ambivalent about religion find their own, authentic spirituality. Whether religious trauma, isolation, or alienation have been a part of your past or not, I am here for your work on your own path.

I am a white, fat, cis woman, a sovereign queer femme with well-managed mental illness and trauma from sexual assault. I am an ordained Unitarian Universalist minister and an Initiate in the Tradition of Stone Circle Wicca (USA). I spent four years in discernment with an order of Roman Catholic religious sisters, and I am trained and credentialed as a spiritual director.

I also know that none of those things may tell you all of what you need or want to know about me.
If you want to have a fuller, more tangible sense of how I came to be the person I am, read on.
