My Writings

DSC_0993 400I’m not a guru. I don’t have all the answers, and you definitely won’t find me on the back of a self-help book, with a smug smile on my face, perfectly conditioned hair, and gloating eyes that say, “you only wish your life were as awesome as mine.” (In reality, my eyes are usually saying, “we just hope we’re not blinking right now.”)

If I seem wise in the ways of relationships and life in general, it’s only because I’ve made pretty much every mistake imaginable. That’s why I became a Marriage and Family Therapist and created Social Savvy Sage, a coaching service to help you refine your social skills. I also run Musings on Live and Love, a group blog where people can share their life lessons, and LemonVibe, a now-retired anonymous advice site. My mission is to allow ourselves to learn from each other and, in the process, get a chuckle or two out of our collective ineptitude.

The Frisky

Note: In the early 2010s, The Frisky was one of the hottest women’s lifestyle websites on the internet. Unfortunately, the site was sold in 2016, and over the next several years, its budget was slashed and the site itself effectively gutted. Eventually, all of its original articles were taken down and replaced with clickbait. Fortunately (for me), I saved all the articles I wrote and have republished them on my own blog.
