Maybe you already have a Spiritual Director and Supervisor, and are beginning or growing your spiritual direction practice. It can be overwhelming to know what forms and resources you need to be in line best practices. If this is you, I would be happy to help and make sure you have everything you need!
It is so important to be in direction ourselves, as well as receive supervision so we can best serve directees. Whether you are already practicing as a spiritual director or are in training, I would be honored to serve as your supervisor. The best approach to engage with supervision is the one that works best for you, so I offer a variety of verbatim methods!
I began meeting with Tiff when in a season in my life where God felt distant to me. I needed someone to give me the space and tools to pay attention to my experience, process my faith and my disappointment with the Church, and better understand the limitations of my personality. Tiff is an experienced, warm, empathetic listener who patiently and compassionately invites me to pay attention to the movement of the Divine in my life. Her “with-ness” has been a gift and a safe place from which I have been able to process my experiences (past and current). With her support I have become better able to recognise my deeper reactions to life and any associated unwanted feelings, and I am better able to speak the truth I discover to God.
Tiff helped create a space for me to remember how kind the Lord is, and then walked me through how to pursue healing. She was such a safe space for me to process. I’m thankful that a hard season was shaped by safety, freedom, and healing.”
As I began the process of auditing my spiritual belief systems (deconstruction) I was encouraged by a friend to seek out Tiff for her spiritual direction services. I wasn’t sure what to expect at first and assumed I might just hear the same platitudes I was used to. I was pleasantly surprised that through the last several years of sessions Tiff has been nothing but amazing, gentle, and challenging towards me. Through her guidance I have found contentment and confidence in being in a place of questioning my spiritual beliefs. We explore topics, themes, and questions that come up in my life in a thoughtful, passionate way. I really appreciate the resources and tools that she is able to offer to help further my growth.
I have found more confidence and contentment while going through the spiritual direction process with Tiff. She has normalized questioning my faith which I didn’t realize was something I was missing. She has the gentle grace to know when to push you out of your comfort zone for your benefit.”
"I highly recommend spiritual direction with Tiff. Spiritual direction with Tiff is an invitation and gentle guiding. This has been so helpful and healing for me as my family has been going through challenging times and I've experienced faith deconstruction. Tiff's spiritual direction has helped me to see God in unlikely places and to stay grounded and reflect on who I am as a child of God."
