About me

So who am I anyway?

I have a Master’s Degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling, and I am a trained Hypnotherapist and Transformational Life Coach. I am a full-time Mom to the world’s most awesomest children. (Yes, I said, “most-awesomest,” and they are, so don’t quibble.Their dad agrees.) I am a singer and songwriter, a partner, a daughter, a sister, a friend, erstwhile Zumba Instructor, nerd.

A million years ago, I was an actress living in working in Los Angeles, CA. (You can check out a partial list of my acting jobs on my IMDB page, if you’re so inclined.) Before that, I got my Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology from Stanford University. And before that, I was fortunate enough to travel with my family due to my Dad’s being an Army soldier.

(Go Army: “Loyalty, Duty, Respect, Selfless-Service, Honor, Integrity, Personal Courage. Hooah!”)

For as long as I can remember, I have been consumed with a need to understand why people are the way they are. I started reading Philosophy in junior high school. I studied Psychology formally, and Metaphysics and Religion informally. Even acting is part of my quest: to get into a character, one has to fully understand the character. I am driven to try to understand three things:

Why are people the way they are?
What is the good life?
How do you get it?
I am not sure those questions have answers, and even if they do, I am not sure I know them. (What’s that you say? The answer is 42? But, really, darling, what exactly is the question?)

I do know this: humans are infinitely fascinating, and I love, love, love learning more about us.

  1. Interesting blog! Is your theme custom made or did you download it
    from somewhere? A design like yours with a few simple tweeks would really make my blog shine.

    Please let me know where you got your theme. Thanks a lot
