Perhaps I missed my calling as a milliner, with all the hats I wear: writer, teacher, therapist, coach, editor, singer, storyteller, and more. But I enjoy the variety and am glad you stopped by. When I'm not working on my own writing, I offer wide-ranging services in Newton, Mass., as a personal writing coach and manuscript consultant, mindfulness instructor, psychotherapist, and editor. I also teach at GrubStreet, Boston's premier independent writing center, and lead Write It Like It Is workshops and groups. Please take your time to explore this site and contact me if you'd like to know more.

Coming Soon
