I work with clergy who are pulled in many different directions and want to make time for what matters most.
Whether you are a solo pastor or head of staff, trying to find a balance in bi-vocational ministry or negotiating the needs of a multi-point charge, serving as an intentional interim or working in a specialized ministry, or balancing dual vocations as parent or partner and priest or pastor, I can help you become a more effective leader without losing yourself.

I take a particular interest in coaching clergywomen and LGBTQIA+ clergy. I have served churches of diverse size and situation as both a settled and intentional interim pastor, in Maine and Pennsylvania. I have studied the Enneagram with Suzanne Stabile and am conversant with Myers-Briggs.
