Reader, writer, editor
As a highly romantic teen, I devoured romance novels. As a slightly less romantic adult, I am endlessly fascinated by love stories. Love is precious, messy, lopsided and almost always worth it. I’ve been a writer and editor for nearly 15 years, having worked in newsrooms, tech companies, social media and more. Relationships remain one of my favorite storytelling spaces and every story I've helped tell over the years has been a little bit about connections.
I write primarily about love that is difficult, relationships that we often find difficult to explain even to ourselves, and Bonobology offers me the space to do so with humor, depth and affection..
Breaking up with someone you love isn’t always reasonable. But there will be reasons why you’re unhappy with the relationship to the extent that you’d rather end it than stay and try and work things out.
Friends, family, loved ones rallying around you is amazing. But, there are times when a trained therapist is who you need. An impartial ear, active listening, and someone who won’t hesitate to call you out could be just what your heart and brain need.
We’ll be honest – there’s no easy or simple way to do this. You’re about to confess to a partner whom you probably still love and respect, or at least still have some warm feelings toward, that you cheated on them.
