The most complex question I get is, "What do you do?"

The real question is, "What can I do for you?" The short answer is that I want to connect, share professional and personal wisdom, learn from each other, and grow as a collective group of curious people trying to help others.

To throw out labels, I'm a mom, wife, web consultant, writer, therapy website marketer, public speaker, connector, webmaster, business manager, and natural networker. My most public works have been writing for the Psychotherapy Networker Magazine in their Nov '09 issue (topic was on launching my husbands private practice through free internet marketing techniques) and Sept '10, focusing on "the internet as therapist ally."

My biggest public voice:

Great quote:

I am of the opinion that my life belongs to the community... and as long as I live, it is my privilege to do for it whatever I can. I want to be thoroughly used up when I die, for the harder I work, the more I live. I rejoice in life for its own sake. Life is no brief candle to me. It is a sort of splendid torch which I have got hold of for a moment and I want to make it burn as brightly as possible before handing it on to future generations.
