Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
UPDATE: My dance card is full right now. Availability and
scheduling are likely to be exceedingly difficult.
I like to think of myself as an average Texas lady with a dirty
mind and potty mouth to boot. However, I find that people usually
refer to me as "that lady who's pretty weird, but really nice." I
tend to be discerning with the company I keep, but am a loyal
friend. I consider myself low-key and tend to enjoy company best in
a 1:1 or small group setting.
I'm also in a polyamorous family, just throwin' that out there. My
husband and I are very supportive of each other and in a loving,
committed relationship (together since 2005), but we're also free
to seek out love, affection, or sex from other partners. We
co-parent a child together with another partner. It works very well
for us, but I don't think I would recommend it for everybody.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I feel that I'm on the cusp of some really cool things
professionally. I have licenses/credentials in mental health
counseling and music therapy, and I have enough clinical experience
to start some neat projects. I'm currently working full time and
present at conferences a handful of times a year. I began the
process of writing an article to submit to peer review. I've become
an internship director for music therapy students obtaining their
board certification, and supervision has been fun! I just provided
my first professional workshop with a colleague and intend to
become a continuing education provider. Yay!
I am also fully submersed in family life, and enjoy it immensely.
Parenting has so far been a profound experience, and only becomes
more fun with time. There's really no words to describe it. If I'm
not out on a date, I prefer to be with my family.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
making crawfish etouffee; creating an approachable, safe
environment for people; singing classic rock tunes; knitting;
making soap; procrastinating; generally being rad.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'd like to think that people remember me for my eyes or my quirky
sense of humor, rather than for my boobs or something.

a nice concise list for you. I like everything but new country and
contemporary sacred music. Generally speaking, I prefer music that
has a lot of emotional intensity or unconventional chord
progressions. The artists that seem to keep entering heavy rotation
as of late are: Grizzly Bear, Steely Dan, David Bowie, UGK, Tame
Impala, Die Antwoord, ELO, Kendrick Lamar, Leon Russell, El
Guincho, Slim Thug, Metronomy, and Supertramp.
Food: I am not picky when it comes to tasty treats, but I always
enjoy Japanese or Thai. Fried okra is especially delicious!
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
- freedom of choice
- the support of my loved ones
- intellectual stimuli
- authenticity, unconditional positive regard, and empathy

- a good chef's knife
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.

cocktail; making out; how to entertain myself when I find free
time; music theory; how to cull out superfluous bullshit paperwork;
how many marshmallows my dog can eat before throwing up.
