Thank you for visiting my website! I am 42 years old and live on Eastern Long Island with my two children. Maura is 13 and Nolan is 10. I have a master's degree in social work (L-MSW) and have been a school social worker for the past 12 years. I started writing about 6 years ago.
After getting divorced, about 6 years ago, I started reading about the Law of Attraction. I was struggling with depression, anxiety, being a single mom, working full-time and trying to raise my kids. I was trying to feel joy and be grateful for the things I did have, instead of focusing on what I didn’t have. Feeling down wasn’t serving me. I read The Secret, I read Louise Hay’s You can Heal your Life, Marianne Williamson’s Return to Love, and a lot of Joel Osteen and Wayne Dyer mixed in. I started to feel better. And I started to write a book.
Fast forward to 2014. Good things were happening in my life, but I still felt….unfulfilled and stuck. I dusted off the Law of Attraction books I read years before (and a few new ones), and I started paying attention. I started getting quiet and just listening. I began visualizing what I wanted my life to look like and feel like. I created a vision board, I prayed, I practiced gratitude daily and my path started to become clear.
I picked up the book I started writing a few years prior and I started writing again. I attended a Hay House writer’s workshop and that was the birth of the new me. As scary as it is sometimes to put myself out there as a writer, to share personal stories and feel vulnerable, I never consider turning back.
