Supervision

“Teach me your way, O Lord, that I may walk in your truth…” Psalm 86:11

Spiritual directors seek regular supervision for the sake of their directees, themselves and their ministries. We all need someone else’s perspective on what we are doing in order to guard against pride or self-deception. We also need help to identify our growing edges and new places of freedom.

I am honored to work with spiritual directors one-on-one and in peer supervision groups. Caring for the caretakers is an important and often overlooked aspect of ministry, and I so enjoy blessing those who bless others.

IMG_1232I have been supervising spiritual directors since 2005. Much of my formative experience was at Biola University’s Institute for Spiritual Formation, where I led both peer supervision groups and gave individual supervision. I also was called on to tutor and assist in the training of new spiritual directors. Additionally, I am approved to provide supervision to directors-in-training at Richmont Graduate University in Atlanta, GA, and to spiritual directors trained at Tyndale Seminary in Toronto, Canada.

I am constantly seeking to improve my education in the area of supervision, by taking classes and engaging in enrichment opportunities where I can. I myself participate in both peer group and individual supervision for my own spiritual direction ministry. And, I was regularly engaged in the work of supporting spiritual directors professionally and vocationally through my role as founding director of the Evangelical Spiritual Directors Association.

Currently, I am available for individual supervision or consultation in person in Whitier, CA, or over Skype at reasonable rates.
