About your guide:

I am am an international trainer authorized to give trainings in the United States by the International Institute for Outdoor Life Coaching, situated in the Netherlands. I have been leading therapeutic nature encounters in the old forests of Europe for the past five years and was trained in the extraordinary art of Outdoor Life Coaching.

I earned my M.Div. from Emory University’s Candler School of Theology where my studies focused on progressive and liberation theologies. While at Candler I engaged deep study of pastoral counseling, contemplative practices, constructivist pedagogy and a myriad of soulful shenanigans.

I am also:

Veriditas trained labyrinth guide;
an ANFT nature therapy guide student
and deeply engaged in Active Hope learning experiences.

The golden thread running through my life’s journey is a persistent calling to find, as Frederick Buechner describes, the place where my deep gladness meets the world’s deep hunger.
