Writing & Editing

I produce original writing and editing services in several formats including academic journal articles, textbook chapters, and through online formats. I edit manuscripts (mainstream and APA style) and assist authors in clarifying their messages.

My Approach

I use evidence-based practices to ensure excellent sessions.  I specialize in helping high achievers gain insight into the way their experiences, thoughts, behaviors, and emotions relate to mental health and wellness. 


This psychodynamic perspective helps people understand how their past experiences, both positive and negative, play a role in their current personal and professional relationships and circumstances. Understanding these patterns helps people learn how to lead even more successful lives.
