Be Made Whole


Are you tired of battling negative thoughts, depression, anxiety, and past hurts? Have traditional therapies left you searching for lasting results? Join my Be Made Whole Retreat Intensives are designed for those seeking a biblical & spiritual approach to healing while embracing God’s divine love, light, & presence.


When Jesus saw [the man] lying there and knew that he had been there a long time, he said to him, ‘Do you want to be made well? ‘” John 5:6

In the tapestry of life, we often find ourselves entangled in threads of negative thoughts, lingering depression, relentless anxiety, and haunting past hurts. I understand the weight of these struggles and the longing for a genuine, lasting transformation. That’s why I invite you to embark on a profound journey of self-discovery and healing at newly offered Be Made Whole Weekend Retreats.

In September 2023, I facilitated a half-day in-person retreat titled Sacred Pause in Sacramento, California. The results of this retreat were so life-changing for me and the participants that I just have to do it again and again. With the right tools, guidance, instruction, and God’s transformative presence, we no longer have to be a slave to our minds, emotions, the world, or circumstances. We can Be Made Whole! The Lord gave me this name while drive home one day!!!

Life appears to be more and more demanding, pulling us in various directions, distracting us from God, and leaving us feeling hopeless and depleted. This retreat serves as a sacred pause, an opportunity for you to breathe, reflect, and realign with your spiritual lifeline. In the embrace of a supportive community, you’ll find solace and begin a transformative journey towards wholeness.

The Be Made Whole Retreat is designed as an immersive experience where you will not only learn but embody a variety of techniques for mental, emotional, and spiritual healing. This isn’t just a retreat; it’s a sanctuary where you’ll gain tools that resonate with your journey, empowering you to become your own healer in Christ.

As we journey together, you’ll peel away layers of burdens, fears, and limiting beliefs. The immersive nature of this retreat allows for a deep dive into your inner world, fostering a space for unburdening and release. I believe that the key to transformation lies in acknowledging and letting go, creating room for the light of healing to permeate your being.

Amidst the challenges, you’ll discover the profound steps of inner transformation. The journey is not about a quick fix but about equipping you with the understanding and tools to craft your unique healing plan. Awareness, capturing thoughts, managing emotions, and experiencing inner healing become your compass, guiding you towards sustainable growth

The day culminates in a sharing circle, a space to celebrate your journey and hear inspiring testimonials from fellow travelers. This sense of community is not just a conclusion; it’s the beginning of ongoing support for your continued growth and transformation.

Dear friend, this retreat is an invitation to invest in your spiritual and emotional well-being, to immerse yourself in a sanctuary of healing, and to embrace the life-transforming power of God’s love. Join us on this sacred journey towards wholeness.


BE MADE WHOLE RETREATS are held alternatively online (via Zoom) and in-person. The tentative date for the next “in-person” retreat is April 26-28, 2024. Please join the mailing list to receive registration information once it becomes available.
