Retreats, Speaking, and Preaching

Need a leader for your retreat? A speaker for your event or a preacher for your worship? I've led and spoken to groups throughout the southeast. Contact me to talk about your need.

Birthing a New Chapter

Twice a year this online group meets to work through the emotional and spiritual aspects of midlife. Each week features a video plus guides for applying it to your own life. 

Small group and solo studies

Resources for a church sponsored small group, a gathering of friends, or simply a journey on your own. Each study features brief streaming videos and study guides.

You blinked, and you were here.

Your kids are moving out into their own lives. Your work doesn't work the way that you thought it would at this stage of your life. You're in your forties or fifties or even sliding into your sixties - and you're wondering who and what you want to be when you grow up. 

Something doesn't quite fit, and I'm not talking about your jeans. 

I'm trained as a therapist and ordained as a minister. I'm passionate about helping women in midlife create their best life in this new chapter.

Join me.

The Heart Callings Difference


An ordained minister for over 30 years, I believe midlife is one more chapter in our faith journeys. That doesn't mean putting you into a spiritual box. It means helping you find your path in this season. Questions, doubts and finding new paths are all welcomed.


As a licensed counselor for over a dozen years, I understand the impact of the stories we've been told, the stories we've lived and the losses that have shaped us.I bring to you insights from new research and proven wisdom to give you the tools you need to create your life.


I've staffed workshops all over the country and worked with people from all over the world. I've seen the magic that happens when people commit to making positive changes. My passion is helping women find the fullness of their lives in this chapter of their lives.
