Welcome to my online therapy service for fictional characters! I’m a Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist (MFC # 45366), Infant-Family Early Childhood Mental Health Specialist, Reflective Practice Mentor and Certified Solution-Focused Brief Therapy practitioner in California.
For over 14 years I’ve utilized an eclectic therapeutic approach with families, teens, parents, and children, and I’ve worked in several environments, including a crisis pregnancy center, psychiatric hospital, drug rehabilitation, elementary and high schools, college campuses, multiple non-profits and homeless shelters, a foster family agency, and in private practice. But in June 2011, I added one more location: the internet. I love my day job so much, I crossed over to diagnosing make-believe people. (Just don’t tell my real clients, or they might wonder if they’ve come to the right person for help after all.)
In addition to being a therapist, I’m also a freelance writer, author, editor, and book reviewer. I’ve written monthly columns for and been featured in multiple online magazines, newspapers, and blogs. My fiction has finalized in multiple contests, and I’m currently working on publishing my first book for writers about archetypes and stereotypes.
