Her passion for companioning others on their spiritual journeys is evident through authorship as well, having penned several spiritual growth and spiritual formation books.

She has been a professional speaker since 1994 and is regularly invited to lead retreats and speak at conferences nationwide.
 
Her general interests are sourced in growing educational opportunities, experiences, and relationships that promote Perennial Wisdom, interspiritual understanding, and heart-centered living with people of all traditions and none. 
 
Her current research is focused on the changing face of spiritual direction/guidance, and with the growing tide of “Spiritual Independents” worldwide, specifically, how we can best serve this population of discerning seekers in the most ethical and compassionate ways possible. She is the creator of the Pure Presence® method, a unique protocol for sacred listening that can enhance and deepen one’s ability to offer presence to clients and seekers of any tradition, with a book on the subject forthcoming.
