Integration of Faith My Orthodox Christian faith is the deep foundation of everything I do in life, including my vocation and work. Currently I am completing a Master in Theological Studies at Holy Cross School of Theology and this is bringing new layers of understanding and grounding in my both faith and professional work. I believe and experience daily that God works at the core of every human, therefore I bring all my skills and 35+ years of training and experience to facilitate others' inner healing and connection with 'the living waters'. My main focus at this point in my career is to offer Group Consultations for Clergy, Chaplains & Mental Health Professionals to assist and support them in their sacred healing work.
