My Personal Story
My personal story is captured in my two books, 50 Ways to Worry Less Now: Reject Negative Thinking to Find Peace, Clarity, and Connection and Love More Now: Face Life Challenges with and Open Heart.
Both books incorporate what I’ve learned from my training in psychology and over 30 years applying tools from 12-step recovery programs, cognitive therapy, energy work, and a variety of spiritual and scientific teachings.
Worry Less Now began as a memoir chronicling my three short marriages, career as a professional horseback rider, and adventures hitchhiking across the north of Spain–all before I turned 38. My wise (4th!) husband suggested that instead, I write a self-help book with “all those helpful things you say when you counsel people on the phone.”
Worry Less Now was released in 2018 and won the coveted National Indie Excellence award. In 2023, I published Love More Now to illustrate how to open our hearts to the wisdom of our true selves, even during the most difficult of life challenges: relationships, codependency, and addiction.
I have used these ideas to free myself and hundreds of others from worry and fear; and I can tell you with confidence that they work!
