About Jodie

“Aside from practicing as a LMHC in the state of Massachusetts, where I grew up, I am an active mother to two boys and enjoy pure barre, walking, gardening, reading, HGTV, baking, drawing and painting; supporting the boys in their karate journeys, teaching them creativity and art, and writing and illustrating children’s books.  Check out one my oldest son and I have written, here, illustrated and published; all based 100% on a true story! I am also a published author to many blog articles, a self-help book, and more. I have spent many full summers living in Clearwater, Florida, a summer living in Los Angeles, CA and lived in Long Island and along the Hudson River in Westchester County, NY for many years. I currently live in metro-west with my husband, two sons, and four pets.”           family photo for website
