If you’re interested in meeting with me for spiritual direction, please visit this page and fill out the form at the bottom of the page. I’ll contact you about a first meeting via email.
During a first meeting with a spiritual director, ask yourself
- Do I feel safe and have a connection with this director?
- Do I feel free to be open and honest about my God image, style of prayer, sexuality and sexual practice, money habits, etc. with this director?
It is important that you feel safe to bring your whole self to spiritual direction. Check in with yourself before, during, and after session to make sure you feel freedom when meeting with this particular director.
If I know you personally
If you’re a friend of mine, I cannot be your director. Neither of us would be fully free in session, and it is crucial that the director feels free to ask questions and for the directee to feel free to bring all of their human experience to direction. Or perhaps you don’t live in San Francisco and are not interested in meeting over video chat. No matter the reason, I’d love to make sure you’re matched with a spiritual director.
I suggest you start with the Spiritual Directors International search page. It allows you to search for a spiritual director by city. I recommend you arrange to have first meetings with 3 different directors. A lot of spiritual direction is about feeling a sense of safety and connection with the director, so ask yourself the questions at the top of this page as you meet with each.
Prayers, hopes, and good vibes for your search for a spiritual director! If you have any questions, please contact me. It is a passion of mine to connect people with spiritual directors.
