It’s great to meet you!

Hello! Thanks again for visiting Healing Press. I am so glad you found your way here. I live in upstate New York with my husband. My life has gifted me with many roles as mom, nona, wife, nurse, grief educator, coach, teacher, and author. Gardening, creating art, loving on my grands, and connecting with nature add even more joy to my life. 

As a grief educator, coach, and nurse, I am an advocate of grief literacy and compassionate end-of-life care in children and adults. Life’s peaks and valleys encourage me to grow in body, mind, and spirit to serve my healing and to be of healing service to others. 

Working with those healing in grief; supporting teachers dealing with grief in the classroom, and working with children’s grief camps, continue to teach me about the power of connection in witnessing grief.  Children are the best teachers when it comes to speaking from the heart. We have much to learn from their insights.

The Cardinal’s Gift is my first children’s book and I  look forward to many more. (New release in Spring 2023!)
