Music and Spirituality: A circle program that engages the natural healing of spirit through listening to and/or creating music and song with others. Available for hospitals, mental wellness programs, faith communities and more.

Writing and Storytelling: I have had the pleasure of creating and facilitating writing programs for mental wellness. My Recovery Narrative, Ink™ programs are designed for small groups as a space to grow and explore with one’s peers, in honest self-expression, as writers-without-labels.

SPIRITUAL GROWTH AND CARE:

Spiritual Care Counselling for individuals, takes place in a safe and sacred space, allowing reflection and conversation during times of transition, times of spiritual questioning, and periods of deepening one’s spiritual growth and practices.

Clinical Spiritual Consultation is a good choice when you are in transition and/or seeking new meaning and purpose from within

Together we invite personal exploration through deep listening, perceptive questioning, and compassionate stewardship.

There is no diagnosing or treatment of illnesses, and  thus it is not psychotherapy, although sessions may be therapeutic.

As a professionally trained and insured hospital Chaplain, I provide secular as well as faith-based services to people of all genders and abilities. I am a Member of NAJC, the Neshama: Association of Jewish Chaplains.
