Now that I have KonMari'd (yeah I added a "d" to… Continue reading KonMari’d – My Way
Therapy entered into my life as a child of divorce. It was always an option for me. Ultimately, obtaining a Masters of Social Work was my way of contributing to the world. My skills have helped others, but equally I benefited from self-work with my therapist. I am able to take the calls from so… Continue reading Therapy – Get You Some!
Trauma and Loss was about healing. The blog stats were off the charts, some who read were touched, empowered and inspired. Others were concerned, speechless and heartbroken.

My New Home Foot to the peddle and an unquenched desire for substantive change, my 2018 post-Thanksgiving drive back to Atlanta was far from boring. Ears glued to my JB wireless speaker (car too old for Bluetooth capability), I had story time with Marie Kondo's audiobook The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up.
