In addition to writing books, I’m a licensed clinical therapist focusing on addictions, eating disorders, and adolescent issues. When I was an adolescent, I suffered from anorexia. My new nonfiction book, It’s Not What You’re Eating, It’s What’s Eating You, was inspired by my own life experience and draws from my clinical training. I know both sides of the coin—the suffering and the path to recovery.
My fiction debut, Wish I Could Have Said Goodbye, is a story about love and loss, and covers the topics of addiction and co-dependency.
When I’m not writing books, I’m busy counseling clients and investigating new mindfulness practices. Outside the office, you might find me building Legos or binge-watch sitcom reruns on Netflix. I’m a native Chicagoan and live with my two awesome teenagers and our shelter dog, Betty Queen Elizabeth.
I always love to hear from my readers, so feel free to email me.
