Resources to Find Your Voice and Tell Your Story:
Learn what Finding Your Voice means, choices we make when we lose or claim our voices, and tap into ways of accessing our voices again.
Learn about the art of personal essay and storytelling, and ways to cultivate your own voice and writing practice, and explore where we might feel stuck.
Speech therapy resources
How Do I have my child evaluated for speech therapy? Can I work with you?
I currently offer 15 minute consultations by phone/email to guide you in the best direction. For clients in the Ojai Valley, I offer 15 minute consultations in person. Preschool speech and language screenings are also available in select areas. Contact me if you are interested.
If your child is under 3 years old, an evaluation may be available to you at no cost through an Early Intervention program in your state.

Resources for New Moms
Becoming a new mother is one of the biggest life transitions. It’s one of those things you can never adequately “plan” for until you are thrown into the mix of life.
My New motherhood story:
In pictures and words… Note: I didn’t do it as well the first time around. My son’s birth story is lost in this post: Choosing Imperfection: (How Not to Carve a Pumpkin) which was way too wordy and about 7 posts in one. A lesson and perk for parenting a second child: you can make up for the mistakes of the first go-around.

What advice do you have for new moms?
Be really gentle. Be kind to yourself. Know you are doing okay, even on the bad days. We only need to get it right 30% of the time, and that is enough. YOU are the perfect parent for your child. We are all incredibly imperfect at parenting. Our parents were right – it does take a village. Choose your village wisely. Love conquers all. The days are long but the years are short.
What are your favorite blogs/books/resources for moms:
I give a copy of Anne Lamott’s Operating Instructions: A Journal of My Son’s First Year to every friend who is expecting her first son. This is my all-time favorite.
The website Scary Mommy has been making me laugh out loud, and lose my bladder too many times to count.
