Relationships are where life really happens. Through relationships, including our relationship with ourselves,…we connect, we grow and we learn to be our best.

Healthy relationships are foundational to a happy life, but they require a complex set of skills. And because we develop these skills over time and to varying degrees (and we all goof up), relationships get messy.

I live in the beautiful mountains of Colorado with my husband and two daughters. I have a Bachelor’s Degree in Business and a Master’s Degree in Social Sciences. In addition to research and writing, I visit classrooms and groups to teach about friendship and mindfulness. I also teach undergraduate courses at Colorado Mountain College.
