But I have never enjoyed anything more than my current endeavor: running my own private practice, specializing in working with couples and families.
It took me all these years to discover my passion for writing and speaking. It was actually a serendipitous realization. I became driven to write about an invisible, previously overlooked but powerful childhood force which I saw having a tremendous effect on adults´ health and happiness: I call it Childhood Emotional Neglect (CEN).
Over the past two years, I´ve published a book about CEN, and have been interviewed about it on over thirty radio shows. I´ve built a website and blog (see the link below), and written numerous articles trying to educate people about Emotional Neglect, as well as other aspects of psychological health and wellness. In the process, I have become a passionate writer. I´m more than excited and honored to have this opportunity to keep you informed about the newest developments in the field of psychology, and to share my experiences and thoughts in the area of emotional and psychological health.
Although I grew up in the middle of Oklahoma farm country, I have lived in the Boston area since 1987. I enjoy spending time with my husband and two teenage children. Some of my favorite activities are traveling, running, reading, cooking, mountain biking, and hanging out at the beach.
I hope you will share your comments and questions with me in the forum. If you would like me to write about a particular question or topic, let me know. I may not always be able to accommodate, but I promise to do my best. I look forward to hearing from you!
