A Therapist's Endorsement

As I was falling asleep one night, thinking about the characters in An Elf’s Journey, I realized I had fallen in love with them. I had felt their shame when they spoke the truth and weren’t believed. My heart sang when they courageously stepped into their healing journey. Anyone who has experienced inappropriate touching will identify with the characters’ ongoing struggles with fear and trust issues, experience aha moments in their own healing journey, and begin to understand their family’s reactions to disclosure.

Menopause Mavens

Master the Mystery of Menopause

I have shared my own story of repressed memories that arose with My Change and how it stirred some creative resolutions to fulfill my purpose. In 2015, I co-authored this anthology on a topic that is unique to every woman, yet rarely talked about. Let's face it—everybody is impacted by the "Change," and a special group of woman joined hands to compile the stories and secrets of our journeys. Take 25 dynamic women who want to tell their story—to be honest, emotional, as raw as they want—and look out world!


The Mavens open their hearts, share the truth of this unavoidable rite of passage, and turn the often-mysterious experience into a magical space.
