    TEDxCU Talk April 2, 2022

    I did a TED talk!! What a wonderful experience it was to speak to over 1000 people at Macky Auditorium at CU Boulder. I learned so much from the process and met some incredible people who are all striving to break boundaries. Here it is!!

    Let's work together

    After 40+ years of working in child development, parent education and psychology I have created a unique heart-centered approach called Authenticity Architects. I work with individuals, couples, and families using many different tools and techniques that help you excavate your authentic self. Do you want to find more ease, joy, hope, contentment, compassion, tenacity, vitality, and connection in your everyday life? Authenticity Architects can help you create a life made by heart.

    Are you feeling anxious, stressed, overwhelmed, depressed, hopeless, helpless, or sad? Are you grieving the loss of someone you love? Are you a parent overwhelmed with tasks and responsibilities? I’d be honored to help you walk through the challenges you are facing.

    Letters to Freedom is now available on Audible and ITunes

    After many months of recording, the audio version of Letters to Freedom: From Fear to Love to Grace is now available. I poured my heart out writing this book several years ago and I am so grateful to now read it to you. I wrote this powerful story of love, loss and grace to help you get though the arduous task of grief and find the grace that surpasses all understanding.
