I live in Port Townsend, WA and am a 50+ graduate student finishing a degree in counseling psychology. I am an interfaith Spiritual Director who has enjoyed working as a Bereavement Coord. and Chaplain in a rural hospice. I enjoy using expressive arts personally and professionally (journaling, creative nonfiction, poetry, mask-making, creating sacred altars, and using mixed media to create sculptures). My husband, Lylburn, is a retired music educator and is principal clarinet with a local symphony. Our tuxedo cat, Jill, is an endless source of delight, and I confess I love honeybees, goats, basil, and all things lavender!
