Code of Ethics
Personally, I am a part of several spiritual direction associations. I believe that my membership in these places holds me to a standard that is verifiable and helpful to my directees.

Personally, I have chosen to do both individual and peer supervision—each is unique in the gifts and graces that it brings to me and my practice.
