About the Author

   In this section, I would like to share a little bit more about myself. I am a trained and experienced counselor, and I hold both undergraduate and graduate degrees in psychology, and a certificate in Alcoholism and Addiction counseling.  I have worked as a counselor in a variety of settings, and have worked with those who were developmentally changed as well as individuals in recovery from  substance issues.

   I have always loved to express myself through different art forms, and I’m very excited to be publishing my first book, The Forgiveness Journey, and I’m currently working on my second book.

   I have been writing for several decades, and my articles and poetry can be found in publications like Studio East Magazine and Supervision Journal. 

   Aside from writing, I am also a musician, and I play the guitar, drums and keyboards. I have written songs, and have performed in bands. I have always enjoyed expressing myself through my artwork, which includes acrylic & oil paintings, and digital photography. Some of my artwork has been sold to private collectors, and donated to charitable causes for fundraising.

   I was born and raised in New York City, and I currently, I live in the country with my husband, Kenny, my basset hound, Penelope, and my mixed-breed foxhound, Alex. When I’m  not writing, I can be found strumming  my guitar, curling up with a good book, volunteering to help those who are grieving the loss of their animal companions, or simply relaxing with my hubby and our two fur kids.
