Thank You For Considering My Services!
Throughout my 40-year career, it has been a privilege to engage with a wide range of clients around a myriad of dialogues related to everyday struggles and life transitions as well as more intensive traumas, losses, relationship conflicts, creative or business questions, and other personal explorations. My former Manhattan-based psychotherapy practice afforded this opportunity through the end of 2022, at which time I pivoted into exclusively offering WordPaint® Coaching & Mentoring.
Teaching and professional writing have also been key components of my career. I’ve created curriculum and workshops on numerous topics including relationships, sexuality, addiction, grief, sexual trauma, and the usefulness and misusefulness of forgiveness. Further, my journal articles pertinent to extensive work with women survivors of childhood sexual trauma have been published as well as presented at psychotherapy conferences and other professional growth forums.
Developing the craft of writing poetry has been integral to my pursuits, too. My poems have been published in numerous print and on-line literary journals. In addition, as an Amherst Writers & Artists Workshop Leader, I have found it meaningful to facilitate writers in their development of writing voice, confidence, and productivity. In honored affiliation with the Walt Whitman Birthplace Association, I also helped establish the Gwenn A. Nusbaum/WWBA “Poets to Come” Scholarship Award.
Committed to continued work with clients towards change and heightened success, I welcome questions about WordPaint® Coaching & Mentoring.
