I am available for prayer groups, parish and church groups, and informal gatherings of spiritually independent individuals to facilitate retreats and workshops or to provide informational sessions about spiritual growth and formation.  I offer workshops on mindfulness and meditation to learn ways to reduce and manage stress for business persons, lawyers, social workers, public safety personnel, health care workers and others who experience vicarious trauma, etc.
