In others' words...
"I met Amy in a training and was immediately drawn to her. To say that Amy is gentle, kind, graceful and grounded is an understatement. This came across right away and I knew I wanted to meet her. I learned that she works one-on-one an so I decided to make an appointment. I was not disappointed. I had a feeling that Amy would be/could be a very good support for me and it turns out, she is amazing. This was before the pandemic. Once the shelter-in-place began, I withdrew and was hesitant to do such personal work over the phone. I pushed through those anxieties and continue to be rewarded for every conversation we have. I have continued to "see" her through to the present day and each week, She helps me stay grounded and helps me manage whatever is coming up for me during this uncertain time. Amy offers skills, guidance ,comfort and wisdom that help put the pandemic in context, both personally and globally. I have been able to maintain a broader perspective of both myself and the planet thanks to her. I benefit from the weekly meetings as they hold me accountable to my intentions. I am so grateful for her presence in my life. I am feeling grounded and clear and I attribute this to her continued support." J.D.
I am so grateful that Spiritual Direction crossed my path (it was no random coincidence). I had been on a 12-step-based spiritual journey for a number of years, which laid some of the groundwork for this practice. However, spiritual direction took that work to a new level. It has changed my outlook completely, allowing me to see the world through different lenses and helping me become more mindful of and attuned to the higher power in my life.
Spiritual direction is somewhat akin to counseling, but with a spiritual focus. When I arrive, I always feel greeted by a sense of calmness and love. Amy's words are truly full of wisdom, and the way she expresses it is poetic.
Amy is a gifted practitioner, and I believe that participating in spiritual direction is one of the best gifts you can give yourself.
Amy guides one to find - or rediscover - their soul, their purpose and their joy! I would recommend Amy and her soft-spoken, reflective style to anyone who dares to question and to listen. -P.T.
My work with Amy has given me the ability to better understand and manage myself. Her ability to be knowledgeable, approachable, and patient creates a unique space to grow as a person. The benefits of our time together have not just helped me, but have also impacted my relationships with others and my role as a healthcare provider. I am truly grateful to have met Amy and look forward to lifelong insights. G.R.
