Education and Background

I received a BA in Rhetoric and a BS in Human Development & Family Studies from the University of Illinois at Champaign-Urbana in 2002. I went on to receive an MFA in Creative Writing from Oregon State University in 2005. After working many years as a copywriter for educational publications, print journals, and health websites, I returned to school for a Masters in Clinical Psychology from Antioch University, Los Angeles in 2019. I have been practicing therapy since 2019. My therapy practice is currently being supervised by Sally Stevens, LCSW.

I live in the suburbs of Los Angles with my husband and kids. I love reading, writing, walking, dogs, yoga, and spending time with my family and friends.
