Life. Pared Down.

For Folks with Everything Except Peace of Mind

Start Here

Do you have it all but instead of feeling Successful and ‘At Peace’ you’re just OVERWHELMED?

I know how you feel.

I also know that it doesn’t have to be that way.

And there IS a way out.


Simply by getting your life Pared Down so you can achieve INNER CLARITY and focus on things that matter most!

You’ll be more energetic, motivated, effective, & focused and less distracted and stressed out.

Imagine that!

Here’s what you can do to get started:

Step One – Take a good, honest inventory of an area in your life that needs fixing and write it down.

Step Two – Examine your inventory.

Step Three – Do one little thing to adjust it.

Or as Third Century A.D. Roman Plotinus stated:

Withdraw into yourself and look. And if you do not find yourself beautiful yet, act as does the creator of a statue that is to be made beautiful; he cuts away here, he smoothes there, he makes this line lighter, this other purer, until a lovely face has grown upon his work. So do you also…Never cease chiseling your statue.

If you need some help digging deeper, Contact me. I can hold up that mirror for you by asking the right questions.

My Story


‘Swimming’ in our ‘Pared Down’ pool during those very ‘Pared Down’ (short) summers!

Originally a New Yorker (the Upstate version), I grew up in an Irish-Italian, Catholic family and loved hanging out with my siblings, especially during those long, cold winters when we were all stuck indoors driving our poor mother crazy.

Author, speaker, coach, radio contributor, former teacher & lifetime lover of all things literary, I can be reached at I’d love to hear from you!
