Sharing one's story is an extremely meaningful way to connect with others, develop relationships, and to receive personal validation. Seeing one's story on the written page provides an amazing sense of accomplishment and fulfillment, and leaves a beautiful legacy to loved ones and future generations. I continue to be awed and humbled by the amazing adventures and depth of experience that constitute the lives of so many people. I love the process of examination, and to witness the "aha" moments of self-discovery, when one's memories, once subterranean, surface to their conscious awareness and onto the page. The written word has texture and a life of its own, and I love the satisfaction people feel when they see their words on a page, and they realize their lives have been full of individual experience and meaning. I love to be part of the whole process (and sometimes I can't believe I actually get paid to do it!!)
I am a psychologist in private practice in Rye Brook (Westchester County) NY, but I am also the co-founder and owner of Reminiscence, my business specializing in personal memoirs and family histories. My designer and I create one-of-a-kind books.
Love 'em! Fun, generous, bright, interesting people. Very inspiring.
