Freelance writer specializing in health, happiness and the intersection of the two
WEB CONTENT, BLOGS, MAGAZINE ARTICLES, BOOKS

Doctors mend the body, therapists tend the mind and researchers mind the scientific evidence. But who gathers information from all these sources, brings it together and distills it into engaging, thought-provoking content?

That's where I come in. A veteran journalist, I specialize in writing about health, medicine, mental health and psychology. I'm a blogger for Psychology Today, and my work has also been widely published on other major websites, such as Healthgrades, Healthline, Lifescript, MSN, Prevention, WebMD and Yahoo! Health.

In addition, I've written a host of print articles (I lost count somewhere around 3,000), and I've authored or coauthored 14 books. Along with a lengthy list of writing credits, I have a master's degree in health psychology.

Media Mentions

REPORTERS SEEKING A SOURCE

As a journalist, I've interviewed scores of health and mental health professionals. Now and then, however, I switch hats and become the interviewee. If you're a reporter seeking information about the health benefits of practicing mindfulness, managing stress, spending time in nature or savoring the simple things in life, let's chat. I'm always glad to help, and I definitely understand your deadline concerns!

EDITORS SEEKING A WRITER

I am a full-time freelance writer, and I'm always interested in discussing new projects. My articles about health and happiness are packed with down-to-earth advice, uplifting role models and the latest research findings. I'm a friendly voice of support for readers. But I'm also dedicated to bringing them the most up-to-date, evidence-based information available. If that sounds like just what your editorial team needs, let's talk.

oN A PERSONAL NOTE

Exercise-wise, I enjoy hiking and biking, and those enthusiasms are reflected in my writing. Diet-wise, I love veggies and cookies in equal measure, but I'm trying to tip the balance in favor of the former. When it comes to sleep, I'm a pro. But when it comes to stress management, there's plenty of room for improvement. In short, I'm like my readers: already doing many things to take care of myself, but motivated to do even more in the future.
