About Me

I’m American, and my husband’s from Amsterdam. He saw my photo one day and traveled 4,000 miles to find me. So 25 years later, we straddle the ocean to keep up with work, family and friends.

I write about effective living through my books and this blog, plus websites like Thrive Global, The Good Men Project and HuffPost. My inspiration comes from my blended bicultural family that’s spread over three countries on two continents, my lifelong study of the mind-body-spirit connection, and my coaching and teaching with couples and children.

The list of reasons to not feel good about ourselves and our lives is endless – and the decision to not go there is life-changing. And my writing is all about why and how to make that decision.

Thanks for finding us!
