Welcome! Perhaps I missed my calling as a milliner, with all the hats I wear: author of the award-winning mindfulness-themed picture book Charlotte and the Quiet Place, essayist, teacher, therapist, coach, editor, singer, and more. But I enjoy the variety and am glad you stopped by. On this website, you'll find information about my writing, editing, teaching, and clinical services. Please take your time to explore these pages and contact me if you'd like to know more.
