ABOUT: Experience

After experiencing several years of wellness, I was determined to help other women, and their families, suffering from PMDD (or PMS)!  In the 80’s and 90’s, PMS was not only a topic of bad jokes, but it was still largely dismissed as a legitimate medical disorder. I set out and did the following:

  • I started leading psycho-educational support groups for women with PMDD and continued doing so for three years.
  • pmspuzzleI authored a book entitled The PMS Puzzle and spoke to groups educating as many people as I could about the truths of PMS.
  • In the mid-90’s, I went to graduate school to obtain a Masters in Psychology with an emphasis in Marriage, Family, and Child Counseling so that I could gain more knowledge on how to further my skills in helping others.
  • Before moving into private practice, I worked as a therapist in a large faith-based counseling center for almost a decade. I honed my skills around the areas of abuse, trauma, grief/loss, addiction, codependency, domestic violence, and all kinds of betrayal.
  • In 2010, my second book was published – Breaking Through Betrayal: And Recovering The Peace Within. An e-book Betrayal-Proof Your Relationship: What Couples Need to Know and Do was published in 2011.
  • I have been a frequent speaker and workshop leader at professional organizations, including a three time presenter at the California Association of Marriage and Family Therapist’s Annual Conferences (2010 -2012).
  • I have been honored to be a guest on several radio shows/podcasts and on Good Day Sacramento’s morning TV show speaking on the topic of betrayal.
  • Early in 2012, Cyber Bullying No More: Parenting a High Tech Generation, was released. I am passionate about this topic and in helping others.
  • Mountain Air: Relapsing and Finding the Way Back…One Breath at a Time – was released April 2013. Mountain Air is for any individual who has experienced any kind of relapse and who is fighting to find his way back!
  • My newest book – a powerful novel entitled Another Way – was released March 2015. Another Way is for teens, parents and guardians, and all individuals who work with youth. Check out the tab for Another Way!
