Some of my published contributions include:









I was born and raised in South Africa, coming to America in the mid 1970’s. I still have a slight accent, reflecting my English influenced upbringing.

I now live in Southern California with my husband Rick, a business leader. We have two adult daughters Nicole and Caitlin, a son in law Jeff, a grandson Roman Ryan, and a granddaughter Saige Hannah.

Stress and challenges are also part of my life. So I flow forward to you how God has taught and led me on my journey to Flourish in healing, growth and transformation.

In my renewal and recuperating playtime, I enjoy playing with food in the kitchen to create nutritious meals, exercising outside, being out in the wonder and beauty of nature, attracting birds and butterflies and tending to my Jubilee garden.

I also enjoy the cultural tradition of afternoon tea with friends.


There is a magnificent Passionist Fathers retreat center right around the corner from where I live where I spend a lot of time, listening with others in Counseling, Spiritual Direction, Life Coaching and leading Spiritual Formation Retreats.

As a daily rhythm (besides aiming to be productive with meaningful work, checking emails and surfing the net for updated resources to pass on to you) my intention is to move my body for vitality, eat healthy healing foods, read, journal, practice spiritual habits of regular prayer and meditation, cultivating connection with God and meaningful relationships with others.


I received a Ph.D. and Master’s degree in Marriage and Family Therapy from Fuller Theological Seminary School of Psychology, a Master’s degree in Theology from Fuller Theological Seminary and a Bachelors of Arts in Psychology and Kinesiology from UCLA.
I am also a Benedictine Oblate.
