I'm a writer, freelance editor, and psychotherapist. When I'm not doing my own writing, I'm either editing other people's work or seeing clients in my clinical practice. I also facilitate Write It Like It Is workshops and groups in the Greater Boston area and teach at Grub Street. I'm currently enrolled in Lesley University's MFA Program in Creative Writing and recently completed the Certificate Program at the Institute for Meditation and Psychotherapy.
Perhaps I missed my calling as a milliner, with all the hats I wear, but I enjoy the variety and look forward to connecting with you.
Charlotte and the Quiet Place, a picture book that I wrote as part of my Lesley University MFA program, will be published in August 2015 by Parallax Press. Read all about it here!
My craft essay, "The Self as Antihero in the Essays of Nora Ephron, David Sedaris, and Steve Almond," has been accepted for publication in The Writer's Chronicle, date TBA.
"How to Calm a Skittish Cat," a short, meditative essay, will appear in Chicken Soup for the Soul: The Cat Did What? in August 2014.

Let's Get Mortified
► Since 2006, I've been a Boston cast member of Mortified, the comedy show where everyday people share their actual teen writings in front of total strangers. A couple of times a year, I read from my angst-ridden and molto hilarious teenage diaries at Club Oberon in Harvard Square. Stay tuned for upcoming dates! But even if I'm not reading, you really need to see this show (monthly at Oberon). Or watch the new, fabulous documentary, Mortified Nation.
