Many of you know me - I’m a podcaster, author, quirky artist, & have been a high school English teacher for more than 25 years.
I've been through a lot of stuff - emotional abuse, my mother's mental illness & opiate addiction, divorce (as the child & parent), co-parenting after divorce, court battles, dating in my 20s & 40s, Illnesses, finding love again, remarriage, step-parenting, blending families, etc...
I've figured some stuff out by doing the hard work on myself, extensive research, & therapy. I'm here to answer your questions and help you on your own healing journey. You can follow along on these special Ask Me Anything episodes on my Permission to Heal podcast.
Ask me ANYTHING you want and I'll do my best to help!

Everything I do is about helping people make healthy changes in their lives, GIVING THEMSELVES PERMISSION to create a life of love, safety, peace, belonging, and deep meaning.
QUESTION 1 from Gabrielle from Florida.
“I’m answering these questions as one person who's been through a lot of crap in her life and has learned from them, not a mental health professional. So, I do strongly recommend therapy, finding yourself a therapist or a mental health practitioner to help you work through your stuff. As it pertains to you very specifically the only answers I'm giving you or my reactions to things.
So the question is from Gabrielle from Florida and she says, I think I'm in a transitional period in my life. I stopped talking to most of my friends and family members who were no longer serving me. And I started removing senseless hobbies I had. Now I only do things. I feel makes me a better person, but in the process, I feel awful. Is this what changing for the better is like, and why is it so lonely?
