Have you ever woken up in the middle of the night

and tried to get back to sleep?


You toss and turn. And toss some more. And finally you give yourself permission to just lie there wide awake. It’s amazing the kind of stuff that comes up when you are alone and have no other distractions!

Well that was me a few months ago. I was suddenly awake and alert at 3:00 AM. And I was just about to celebrate my 59th birthday!

I slipped out of bed, groped for my glasses, and climbed the stairs to my office. Pausing on the landing, I gazed up at the full moon. Silent shadows danced on the earth below.

A sacred moment in time.

Reaching my office, I quietly shut the door. I switched on my desk lamp, pulled out my journal and sat down. With pen in hand, I pondered the next season of my life.

How do I want these next ten years to look like? What do I need to start doing now to make that happen? When will I know it’s time to make a change?

I shared my dream with a few of my closest confidantes. Their enthusiasm and support confirmed my decision to go for it.  And so, at this time, I will remain in private practice as a Registered Clinical Counsellor and devote the bulk of my energy on writing. Oh, and drawing too (Have fun checking out my cartoons on my site)!

I invite you to make yourself a cup of tea, cozy up in your favourite chair and browse through my website.  Feel free to start anywhere by clicking on the menu tabs at the top of this page. This will give you a better idea of who I am and the work I do.

Wishing you peace and purpose as you awaken to your own dreams!

And see you on the blog!
