I write in my journal to keep me sane. Regularly.
AT LEAST WEEKLY, SOMETIMES DAILY
in all manner of styles, settings, speeds, and sizes
My interest in journaling began as a young girl when my second grade teacher, Mrs. Thomason, handed me my very first journal. For thirty years, I’ve developed that gift into my life’s purpose: to offer journal writing to anyone as an invaluable instrument for healing, growth, and discovery, and to share the gift of personal writing with anyone who has a desire to be transformed through the power of words.

MY LIFE'S PURPOSE
Through my passion for personal writing, I’ve discovered a realm of therapeutic benefits through expressive writing that have been studied and proven to reduce stress and promote feelings of well-being. Journal Therapy, which is defined as the purposeful and intentional use of life-based writing to further therapeutic goals, is one of the Expressive Arts Therapies, such as dance, art, or music therapy. I earned my credential as a Certified Applied Poetry Facilitator through the International Federation for Biblio/Poetry Therapy in 2006 and love sharing my passion for and extensive knowledge of personal writing with beginning writers and life-long journalers alike.
