MAMA of 4. 

The current statistics on mental-health related disorders trouble me deeply.

  • 29 million American women, or about 23 percent of the female population, have experienced a diagnosable mental health-related disorder in the last year alone
  • 950,000 women suffer from postpartum mood disorders each year. 
  • 5.3 million women in the United States drink in a way that threatens health.”
  • Every one-hundred-and-seven seconds an American is sexually assaulted. 
  • Eating Disorders have the highest mortality rate of any mental illness. 

What does it take to recover from an eating disorder, substance abuse, sexual assault, and postpartum panic and anxiety? I know what it takes, because I have done just that. And I became a mental health professional so that I could heal both myself and help others to heal. And, my professional goal as an author, therapist, and educator is to be a solution to every woman I can reach by telling my story and offering a means to start healing.

Experts say that millions of other cases of mental health disorders may go unreported — and therefore untreated. I have a responsibility to help change that.

As a credible licensed therapist at the forefront of helping women I use positive psychology, as well as my own experiences, to help women be the best version of themselves. With the launch of my book, I reveal my struggles as well as successes on leading a life in recovery. A holistic approach makes me a sought-after therapist, as well as a leading expert in helping women who struggle with depression, anxiety, substance abuse and addictions, as well as sexual dysfunction.

My colorful, chaotic, adventure-filled life story is told in a deeply personal, page-turning self-help memoir, that’s meant to inspire a reader to take action and seek support--perhaps for the first time ever. My narrative coupled with professional expertise as a successful psychotherapist, provides actionable advice for women to help them take control of their lives, and live the life they truly want.

I’m described by those who know me well as raw, authentic, genuine, focused, motivated, inspiring, driven, compassionate, empathic. As a writer I “tell it like it is” in a gentle, non-threatening way which encourages ALL women to be the best version of themselves.
