A dedicated, thoughtful writer crafting stories, insights, and empowerment. Infused by psychiatric expertise. Here’s to your wellbeing!

Creating a World Through Words.

For me, writing is life. I have always written—long, luxurious letters since age 8, passionate journaling from 12 or 13. And twined with writing, I’ve been a caretaker A child carer to family and friends, then a nurse, nurse-midwife, and psychiatric nurse practitioner. I cannot unbraid writer and carer, nor would I want to.

Retired from patient care, now I write—and through writing, hope to help others. I write about wellness, mental health, relationships; what seems most meaningful to humans.


For decades, Dr. Solomon’s psychiatry practice focused on mental health and wellness. She skillfully evolved into writing, strategizing state-of-the-art health and mental health policy, serving as an adjunct professor at OHSU, and mentoring the next generation.

She is a much-published expert and speaker for both scholarly and lay audiences, skills cultivated during a career as writer, editor, and provider in healthcare.
