Teaching therapists with passion

Change the rules.

I've built a career out of helping people change the rules. 

My counseling work has helped individuals and couples challenge the often-unspoken rules that had left them unsatisfied.

My advocacy work has created a better environment for therapists and the clients we serve.
I've challenged rules that held our profession back -- and won.

My teaching has prepared hundreds of new therapists to practice ethically and effectively without losing the essential qualities that brought them to the profession in the first place.

Now, at SimplePractice Learning, I'm changing how we find and learn from continuing education.

I believe in big, bold, transformative ideas.

I work like hell to make them into reality.
