Profile Information

Member Bio
I am a clinical psychologist and founder of WomenSpeak.com, where we provide resources that empower women from trauma to triumph. I speak to groups all over the country helping people recover strength and health after traumatic experiences such as divorce, death, major illness, violence, job loss, or weather emergencies.
As a Nationally Certified Traumatologist, Nationally Certified Crisis Responder and Crisis Team Leader, and a member of National Organization of Victim Assistance. I worked in NYC after 9/11, in Louisiana after Katrina and in Joplin after the 2011 tornado.
I am currently collaborating with 22 smart amazing women on a new book, “Powerful Women Change the World…and How Men Can Help Them” scheduled for release in 2013.
I love speaking to groups, give radio and TV interviews, publish professional articles, and have presented my research at a national conference of the American Psychological Association. For four years I have conducted weekly interviews, designed to help women lead their best lives, which are available as podcasts on WomenSpeak.com. I co-authored the self-help book, Timeless Women Speak: Feeling Youthful At Any Age, based on a decade of research with more than 1,200 women.
I’m honored to have received a Missourian Award in 2010 for my community service; I continue to chair Female Leaders in Philanthropy, a United Way Women’s Initiative; and participated in the 2011 United Nations Commission on the Status of Women. I work consistently in my community and my state to uphold professional standards in the practice of psychology, to lessen the impacts of hunger on children, and to help women improve their personal and professional situations. In addition, I serve on the boards of directors or steering committees for Central Trust and Investment Company, am a Senate-confirmed member of the State Committee of Psychologists Board of Directors, and Board of Trustees member of the Breast Cancer Foundation of the Ozarks.
One of my great experiences was to travel as a People-to-People Ambassador and Wellness Delegate to Beijing and Shanghai, China for Health Providers in Holistic Medicine. I am a member of American Psychological Association, National Wellness Association, Primary Care Network, American Counseling Association, American Association of Marriage and Family Therapists (clinical member), and Psi Chi National Honor Society (Psychology).

What To Do When Your Holidays Will Never Be The Same Again

Posted on December 13, 2012 at 4:22pm 0 Comments

Are you facing the season with dread this year because some event has changed your holidays forever? Perhaps the loss of a loved one has left a large hole in your family portrait, or the loss of a home has removed the setting that gave you all such security. Or perhaps, like me, you have recently gone through a divorce.

A single traumatic event can change every…

We had a modest reprieve here in NYC yesterday - temp hit about 60, I think, and it felt positively balmy outside!  Then, huge wind/rain storm overnight. Now the sun's coming out but temps are predicted to go down to about 40.  Still tolerable, in my view, but i sure hope it doesn't get down into the teens again for any prolonged period.

Where in FL have you been?

Hi Nancy,

I was "featured" a month or so ago - and not one comment came my way!  So, I figured I'd at least congratulate you, and perhaps you'll get even more than my one lone response!
