Growing up in Oklahoma City, I didnâ€™t have a childhood dream of becoming an author, but I did love to read â€“ a lot! From reading the backs of cereal boxes to books from the local library, I developed an appreciation for the power and impact of the written word. However, I didnâ€™t write my first book until years later.
After working for many years as an Administrator in a large multi-specialty medical clinical, I returned to school and began a second career. I earned a Masterâ€™s Degree in Counseling and am licensed in the state of Colorado.
Since then I have spent many hours encouraging, motivating, challenging and inspiring individuals, couples and families in my private practice.
That second career prompted a move to Denver, Colorado, where I established a counseling division at a large church. Iâ€™ve also conducted a variety of workshops and I remember well the one I called â€œApproval Addiction.â€ So many participants craved more information about setting boundaries that I decided to write â€œYes! I Said No!â€
My goal was to create an easy-to-read, and more importantly, an easy-to-implement book to truly change lives. This book is designed to help people become free from such issues as negative family patterns or a mistaken belief that pleasing others is a spiritual gift.
I still enjoy reading, and my husband Jerry and I also like to travel and get away to the mountains to enjoy one of my favorite hobbies, photography.
Book Review :
Iâ€™ve read multiple boundaries books through the years and although each one was helpful, none of them were packed with as much practical application as this book, â€œYes, I Said No!â€. I read it from cover to cover on a business flight between Nashville and Denver and began putting it into practice immediately. Over the next few months, everyone noticed a difference in my life and I realized I was happier and more content than I had ever been. Now I know my emotional cues that let me know when I need to set a boundary! It is so empowering! As my confidence has grown, many new opportunities keep opening up for me, taking me to higher levels in my career. All of my relationships are getting healthier. I am in awe of all the good things that are coming into my life as I have stopped trying to please everyone and learning when to say â€œNo!â€
