About me

The stories we tell ourselves create the way we experience our life and our world. Emotions are formed not just by the messages of our senses, but by the meaning we give to them.

A pounding heart with skipped beats can be terrifying if we’re being chased and think we’ll die. That same fluttering heart is thrilling if we’re staring into the eyes of someone we’re falling in love with.

Your life has twists, complications and reversals, like the best of stories. You think you’re in control but how often are you ad-libbing? When you surprise yourself with an unexpected action, you may explain it as something you intended in the first place. But was it?

I have degrees in English literature and Clinical social work. I’m a retired psychotherapist and current fiction writer.

The stories I’ve read, watched and heard from others have changed my life. My own life is an evolving saga.

I’ll share my stories with you. Please share yours with me and join me on the adventure.

      1. I’m curious to know what you think of my writing and how it plays into or reflects my PTSD and other issues. To compare it to my therapists. Not here, but maybe in email if you want, or Facebook messaging.


        1. I can only comment as a reader to a writer, and your writing is engaging, honest, and a pleasure to read. You can contact me at my email below for more specific answers. Lots of PTSD actually starts from childhood trauma. The military situation is usually very supportive. You feel your life has meaning. When you go home, that is sometimes what can be traumatic.

          1. That’s true about only being able to comment as a reader. I don’t share everything. And thank you for the nice compliments. πŸ™‚


  1. I’ve read the first two chapters and can’t wait for the third. I also read some of the short stories I saw as I scrolled through. I love your writing style. I feel like I am there with the characters.
