Your vocation matters.

 

 

Your heart matters too. 

You love what you do, but the inner seeker inside is concerned about spiritual stagnation.

 

Your vocation is serving others, one that you're finding can empty your cup fast.

You feel drained spiritually and seek a safe space to explore your spiritual life, with others who "get it."

 

You're desiring rest, renewal, and reconnection to your inner light and Divine Source.

Welcome to Root Grow Thrive

 

 

Here we listen 

to the still small voice 

that knows and honors connection to the Divine.

 

Here we honor

the journey it takes to move from feeling

burned out to nourished.

Here we support

each other through Holy Listening, 

intentional silence, creative practice,

and humble presence-giving.

Support for Women in Ministry, Therapists, Healers and Seekers

Serving a vocation can be tough, especially for folx who identify as women. Burnout and compassion fatigue are real, in addition to the typical challenges of managing a life serving others. Whether you are a pastor, spiritual director, chaplain, or healing professional, you are welcomed here!

Openhearted Connection

to Spirit

Creating Safe Spaces for Clergywomen. Therapists, and Seekers

Peer support from women who, like you, desire to grow and sustain their connection to God, Spirit, Source, or whatever name you give the holy.

I offer trainings on many topics, including contemplative spirituality, Jungian shadow work, creative embodiment and body prayer, dreamwork as a spiritual practice, praying the Tarot, and Enneagram coaching.

A place to rest, renew and center in on your spiritual journey, I offer retreats that help you reconnect, nourish, and grow.

Hi, I'm Allie

I am a seeker, a soul pioneer, and guider of dreams. I'm a mom, wife, licensed therapist and certified spiritual director. I call on Presence as my tool for inner awakening. 

In my years working with seekers in and out of church environments, I have noticed a desperate need for safe spaces for self-identified women in ministry and spiritual leadership to explore their spirituality. 

I've seen too many suffer early on in their vocation, wondering if the pressures of working in church environments and the associated struggles will be sustainable.

I've experienced and witnessed burnout, compassion fatigue, and spiritual dark nights as a direct result of the lack of safe spaces. As a trauma therapist, I can see how toxic environments can chip away at our essence and inner sanctuary. I've seen the light go out and women leave their vocations heartbroken and empty. 

I knew my call was to help prevent just that.

Root Grow Thrive was born.​

 

With my work as a spiritual director informed by the Jungian-Christian mystical tradition, I know what it is to listen deeply to folx on all steps along the Way.

I offer years of experience as a healer and listener of stories. As a poet and writer at The Sacred Deep, I attune my ear to listening deeply and understanding nuance and depth, even in the simplest of moments.

 

At my private therapy practice, Rooted Growth Counseling, I serve those in the helping and healing professions. As a facilitator of therapeutic, support and spiritual groups for decades, I know what it is to provide and protect safe space.

 

As a lifelong seeker myself, I know what it is to devote myself to continually reflect on how Spirit is living in my life, and am grounded in my vocation embedded in understanding that growing edges and liminal spaces can be rich sources for opportunity and growth.

I know for sure we're not meant to do life alone, especially for those of us who serve others. Nourishing our connection to Spirit takes intention and calls for safe community.
