Be a rainbow in someone else's cloud.

~Maya Angelou


I enjoy writing stories about people who made the world a better place, the wonders of nature, and the power of kindness and compassion.

In addition to being a children's author, I'm a psychologist in private practice and work with people ages 3 - 83. It's very rewarding helping others overcome challenges in their lives and a privilege to be part of their healing process. I especially love helping children deal with feelings that are hard to express with words using music, art, and play. I hope my stories will connect children to themselves and others and inspire them to spread rainbows in the world. 


My debut picture book, MISTER ROGERS' GIFT OF MUSIC will be published by Page Street Kids Summer, 2022.

My rainbows: 

Family, friends, music, nature walks, books, art museums, swimming, yoga, and travel.
