About me

Hi! I love to write, create art and music, and provide therapy. In 1993, I received a Bachelor’s in Science in Psychology from Indiana University and in 1995, a Master’s of Arts in Counseling from the University of Cincinnati.

Since then, I have worked at multiple for-profit and non-profit businesses in therapist, director and supervisory capacities .

I have a Clinical Therapy license in Indiana (LMHC) and a professional counseling license in Texas with a designation for supervisor (LPC-S). In 2019, I moved from Indiana to Texas.

This blog showcases articles about mental health, photography, and art, and has links with opportunities to purchase photography, art, and a recently published anthology, Women Write Now, Trauma Stories, which includes an article I wrote.
