More About the Author
PO Box 2082, Fort Bragg, CA 95437
I was born in Santa Rosa, CA in 1948. After earning a BA in Community Studies at UC Santa Cruz, I moved to Alaska for a year. Too cold for a California girl. Then injuries from a car accident helped me see my path: to help others seek positive change from difficult experiences.
The Masters program in Social Work at UC Berkeley has given me the experience and license for a private practice, and I now live on the Mendocino coast of northern California with my husband of 30 years, Marshall Rogers. In 2006, a remarkable 12 year old named Peter Alexander Norman Clere Dorn Ravlin, who is an aspiring filmmaker (with one zombie movie already done)was added to our family after the loss of his own.
For 35 years I've worked as a social worker and therapist, volunteering with hospice, Red Cross, and bereaved parents. My own background has given me absolute confidence that anyone can overcome addiction and childhood abuse, and make big changes to achieve desired goals.
My book, "The Courage to Trust: a guide to deep and lasting relationships," (2005) shows how to find trust in yourself and speak with compassion and honesty. My tape (mp3 file), "Embracing True Prosperity", is based on my own evidence that believing in a positive future will bring out the meaning and purpose of your life, just as it did in mine.

I am in a process of exploring this issue with my women's group this year; it's a very rich and scary topic. The Courage to Trust is a valuable, compassionate guide for us in this exploration. I think anyone who has ever been betrayed or disappointed by someone will find helpful support in this beautifully and thoughtfully written book.
