Here's my disclaimer: I'm here to let you know that you alone are responsible for what you do with the information found in this website. What I offer is information, not medical advice. I'm not a registered dietician. I'm not a nurse. I'm not (technically) a therapist, although I've been trained as one. I've also been trained as a health educator and a minister. I've got several degrees that make me a bonafide smarty-pants, but whatever information, tools, and ideas I share with you are not a substitute for medical advice or treatment. I do hope that you will help yourself to anything you find useful and that feels safe for you. Because while I may not be a doctor/ lawyer/ nurse/ whatever, I do know some stuff and I am here to help.
