I am an average every day working mom/wife/daughter/sister/friend.
I have a wonderful supportive husband Patrick who I have been married to for 15 years.
We have two beautiful children together, Laurel (15) and Andrew (13) and I am a stepmom to Alex (29).
We have two dogs and two cats, but our picket fence is not white!
I am a therapist who specializes in perinatal loss and pregnancy and postpartum mood disorders. I love working with women and families and helping to empower them to grow together through difficult times. I also work as an independent contractor for a company where I travel around the country and speak on perinatal loss.
In my spare time I enjoy hiking and camping with my family, walks alone in woods, photography and hanging out with my kids.
I decided to start a blog after my diagnosis of a brain tumor because I feel that this will be an easier way to give information to all of my family and friends without having to text a book to each person every time they want an update on what is happening with me. I am hoping to be a resource to others who have to go through this in the future. My goal is to lessen my own anxiety as I try and navigate this very scary unknown road.
Thanks for joining me!
