“Creating a safe space is of utmost importance to me as I have experienced the unsafe all too often.” Serving four decades with a global ministry, Dana is known for her empathy, authenticity, and intimacy with Christ. Along with offering Spiritual Direction, Dana is a certified grief specialist skillfully helping those walking through devastating loss. For self-care she sings, dabbles in art, gardens, listens to nature, speaks at retreats, and soaks up family time. Dana’s deep respect for each person’s unique journey provides shelter and company whatever your story or quest. You are not alone.  Available to meet face-to-face or virtually.

As a Spiritual Director, being invited into your faith journey is both a gift and privilege.  I enjoy sitting with people of all ages and all stages of faith and be a witness to the presence of God in the ordinariness of your day.  I have been offering Spiritual Direction since 2013 and have received additional training in accompanying people thru the Ignatian Exercises, Enneagram Styles and Supervision of Spiritual Directors. In my free time I am rediscovering hobbies and fun activities as I transition from being a full-time mom into empty nester-hood!  I am able to meet in person in the Fishers, IN area or through various Internet platforms: Skype, FaceTime, Google Hangouts, Zoom.

The word “conduit” has often been used to describe Bev, and, as a spiritual director for the past ten years, she appreciates the opportunity to help connect people more intentionally and deeply to God.  She is a life-long learner, a “recovering perfectionist,” an enthusiastic collaborator and encourager, and she believes that love is a verb. In addition to offering spiritual direction, she leads workshops, book studies and small groups, as well as participating in a pilgrimage healing ministry. Bev is a wife, mother, and grandmother of six (amazing, of course) grandchildren.
