I am a woman in recovery from past trauma and perfectionism, grounded to Mother Earth by fragrant rosemary and skittering bluebirds and the supportive shade of towering oak and elm trees.
I am married to a kind man whose commitment to our marriage and caring for me when I am navigating chronic pain and illness is as remarkable as it is restorative.
I am the daughter of a man whose poetry irrevocably shaped my life, whose sudden death in 2009 changed my life and led me to pursue counseling in which I help wandering souls find refuge and strength as they share their hearts with me.
I am the descendent of Jewish men and women who worked hard to emigrate to America so I could have a better life. I am the proud heir of my grandmother’s beautiful curly hair, great sense of humor, and wide-open smile that seeks to welcome others into love.
I am a deeply spiritual person who finds The Holy in the most unexpected places. I worship at an LGBTQ-affirming church, practice Zen meditation, and honor the Sabbath by lighting candles on Friday night. I no longer apologize to anyone for my spiritual practices or explain how I experience God or seek to push my beliefs on anyone. I no longer compromise on who I am.
I am a kind, generous, and spacious soul who teaches mindfulness meditation so you can open up to vastness of yourself, celebrating the wonder of being alive.
I am a writer and therapist whose work focuses on relating to ourselves and others with deep compassion and grace. In an empathy-starved world, I take great joy in creating a safe and sacred space for weary souls to acknowledge their joys and sorrows with me. You can read more about my credentials and my approach here.
I am a writer and feel such pleasure when I write about the wondrous and hard moments of living. I used to write for myself, writing essays to make sense of my own struggles, but now I write for you. I believe that telling our stories together is one of the most powerful forms of resistance to the cultural myth that we must do life all on our own. I share about my pain and triumph so you can better articulate your own. And I know how the power of words can breathe new life into our stories and move us in towards wholeness.
I’ve written for magazines like Ruminate Magazine, FATHOM, Bearings Online, SheLoves Magazine, The Glorious Table, Presbyterian Outlook, and a handful of other magazines. You can read my published essays here.
I am a native Texan, hailing from the flat lands of Houston and living in Dallas/Worth, on the unneeded and ancestral lands of the Cherokee, Seminole, Creek, Wichita, Comanche, Tawakoni, and Kiikapoi Indians, where I live with my family, two adorable cats, and a burgeoning front-yard garden. Away from work, you can find me hiking in glorious mountains, creating art in my home studio, and writing in our tiny porch garden.
