I’m an author, journalist, developmental editor and ghostwriter who loves helping clients get their messages across with a maximum of clarity and a minimum of fuss. I have decades of experience writing about psychology, societal issues, marriage and family, complementary/holistic health, and Jewish spirituality. My goal is to make my clients’ work accessible and clear, in the appropriate voice for the intended audiences.

My essays and features have been published in the Wall Street Journal, Chicago Tribune, Boston Globe, L.A. Times, Jewish Journal, Aish.com The Wisdom Daily, and many other media outlets.
My clients return to me and refer others because I deliver outstanding, detail-oriented work on time. I work enthusiastically and diligently, and am flexible in meeting changing parameters of various projects.
