Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I have done many different things in my life, including being an
artist, a chef, and mindfulness practitioner; and I am currently a
psychotherapist. I grew up in the South. My first college degree
was a BFA in Painting and Printmaking. I also have an AA in
English. I lived for 30 years in NYC (did textile design and became
a chef) before moving to New England to study and become a
therapist (graduated with MSW in 2005). I have an adult son who
lives in NYC. I love outdoor activities including biking, hiking,
camping, gardening, etc. I love art, dance and music. I am also an
avid reader. I am definitely what you would call a Renaissance
I am creative, resourceful, and intelligent
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I am currently a psychotherapist and I really enjoy my clients and
my work with them. I worked for many years in NYC as an artist and
a chef. I am also very engaged in meditation practice, study and
instruction, and have studied it for 37 years. I guess you could
say I'm, at heart, an artist who is extremely curious and
interested in how the mind works.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Cooking, creative endeavors, gardening, listening to people's

organizing things including social gatherings.

I love many books. I read a lot of fiction. I like Jane Austen,
Dorothy Sayers (mysteries), Barbara Pym. Mainly, I like an engaging
plot-line with interesting characters. I don't actually enjoy
postmodern stuff as much because I don't feel it has much
I enjoy many kinds of music, hard to say my favorite. I sometimes
play the piano for fun and used to play the trumpet when I was a
teenager. I like both classical, blues, rock, etc.
I go to the movies frequently. I enjoyed Crazy Heart (that's the
first movie that comes to mind). I also enjoy live theatre a lot.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Good friends come first. Then my meditation practice and study.
Books. Music and art. Good food. Flowers and herbs.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Relationships, communication and what makes people "tick." Also,
how to live a meaningful life.

Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
