“There are and will be those who think I have gone overboard. Let them rest assured that this assessment is correct,
probably beyond their wildest imaginations, and that I will continue to do so.” ~ Mary Daly

Confessions & Beliefs.

I confess that I am ravenous for smart, sophisticated conversations about and with women; deep, sacred, life-changing stuff.

I believe that when women’s stories change, everything changes – philosophies, beliefs, systems, structures, politics, leadership, homes, children, commerce, whole worlds.

I believe that the world is praying and longing for a deeper, richer wisdom; that this prayer is answered through womens’ incarnate brilliance and beauty.

I confess and believe that the Sacred shows up when I write and speak about these things. And so I do…over and over again.

Speaker. Writer. Storyteller. Conversationalist.


Some of these “titles” are compelled by professional experience. All of them are chosen by design – and desire. I can’t help but speak. I can’t help but write. Stories save me. And provocative conversation is my life blood.

I could tell you the professional stories (and will, if you ask), but am far more committed to the ones I’m yet to speak and write about, yet to tell, yet to hear. They matter. As does yours.

Expertise. Experience. Education. Lots of all three.


I’m trained in both theology and therapy (an M.Div. degree), I’m certified as a Spiritual Director, and I’ve been doing some form of this “work” (though it feels far like gift and grace) for more than 25 years. I’ve been employed in corporate contexts, human resources, executive leadership, training, academics, nonprofits, and then some. And I’ve been here – online – sustaining this work – with and for you – for more than 12 years.

Join me.


If you long to see and experience your own story transformed by the wisdom that already dwells within you, it would be my deepest privilege to walk alongside you on the way. Truly.


When Ronna Detrick speaks, you can see her pulling down wisdom from St. Theresa to Simone de Beauvoir…to give you a gem of grace – or grit. And, she can write – like a poet on a practical mission. Like a feminist with faith. Danielle LaPorte

Ronna writes like a woman on fire with faith and love. I learn something about myself every time I read her work. Jen Louden

Ronna is my go-to source for taking my exploration of trust and faith into action. She has incited in me an activation of values to the tune of identity shifts, truth telling and a deepening of my own self-understanding, Ronna’s work is a deep gift to you. Dyana Valentine

Ronna is the kind of spiritual leader I’ve been waiting for. Her approach is gentle yet full of strength.
Her teaching is full of grace but never compromising. She sees deep within souls… Tara Gentile
