Welcome to my website and thank you for wanting to get to know me better.  As a therapist, a poet, a recovering person, and the mother of a beautiful trans daughter, I believe my history and the gifts I've been given in an ever lengthening lifetime are worth sharing with the world.  My intention is to maintain a life that is informed by love, compassion, empathy, and activism. We live in a challenging time and we all need strong doses of goodness to navigate our struggling society. My sober life and creativity are gifts I am grateful for.
