Author~Spiritual Director (In training)~Creativity Coach

I am so happy that you’re here and look forward to connecting with you through my writing workshops, books and speaking. I’ve written books, essays and articles about things I’m passionate about: creativity, theater, healing, mortality, the Jewish tradition, spirituality, rituals, parenting, nature, disability rights.

Writing is the most immediate way that I cultivate creativity and access my spiritual life. My writing practice has been a cornerstone of my healing through cancer and navigating other life challenges. Writing as a spiritual practice helps me to continually see the world in new ways, discover deeper aspects of my potential and ignite my imagination. 

I teach my expressive writing process to others through Feed Your Spirit Writing and welcome you to join the fun!

In addition to my writing, I am passionate about my work as Director of Virtual Content and Programs for Ritualwell. When I’m not working or writing, I love being with my family, walking with my Saluki Odin, cooking, practicing yoga, spending time at my synagogue and reading. I am currently enrolled in Spiritual Direction Training at the Haden Institute.

To Creativity! To Life!
