About Tom

As your Spiritual Director, I am committed to spending quantity and quality time in personal prayer each day, regularly meeting with my Spiritual Director, participating in ongoing supervision for my Spiritual Direction practice, and praying for all of my directees. In addition to a Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology from St. Meinrad College, a Master’s of Divinity from Notre Dame Seminary, and certification in Spiritual Direction from the Institute for Priestly Formation at Creighton University, and Spiritual Direction Supervision Training from the Sophia Spirituality Center, I am committed to ongoing education and formation in my field. I am also committed to being hospitable, kind, caring, empathetic, gentle and accepting. My desire is to be a good companion for you and God on your spiritual journey.

In addition to my passion for prayer and spirituality, I enjoy reading, photography, music, and bicycling.

I love photography.  Here are some of my photos!
