I am a metaphysical, evangelical, progressive Episcopalian, follower of the radically inclusive love healer, Jesus. Ordained a transitional deacon in June I will be ordained to the priesthood in January 2018 in the Diocese of Los Angeles. I’m a high school dropout, runaway, recovering alcoholic and trauma survivor with a Masters of Divinity, who counsels drug addicts and alcoholics and educates people on the relationship between trauma, mental illness and addiciton . I read too much, write a lot, and am the mother of two extraordinary human beings who have taught me more about humility and grace than I ever expected. St. Stephen’s Hollywood is my sponsoring parish, where I teach some, preach some, and am always inviting people to. Click on the St. Stephen’s link for more info.
