I pursued my love of writing in my first career as a journalist. I was Washington Bureau Chief for a global business magazine. After a decade of writing about the world, I realized I wanted to work with and help the people in it.
I then began my new career in the mental health field. Before entering private practice, I was director of a day program for people with chronic mental illness, and deputy director of a nonprofit agency serving homeless families. These experiences crystalized my belief that every one of us has unique gifts that need to be nurtured and encouraged to grow, so we can achieve the best possible lives we are capable of living.
I’m a graduate of Rutgers University and Virginia Commonwealth University.
My love of music greatly exceeds my talents, but I do enjoy playing guitar, singing, and recording my own peaceful “soundscape” compositions.
