Meredith views writing a means to explore inner life. Process journaling, collage and mosaic work, as well as jewelry making help deepen her ideas, many of which come from fragments she's collected, or from a word or two written on a scrap of paper or the palm of her hand. Her essays have appeared in the Washington Post, JAMA, PsychologyToday.com, Los Angeles Times, Newsweek, Motherwell, Santa Monica Review, Purple Clover and others. ALL THE LOVE: Healing Your Heart and Finding Meaning After Pregnancy Loss, which she's co-authored, will be published by Keylight Books in 2021.
The Writer's [Inner] Journey and the 5-Question Interviews are based on Meredith's interest in the creative process and the individuality each writer draws upon when they create.
Meredith worked in direct healthcare for over two decades but was destined to become a writer. Trauma-informed healing through the expressive arts is the intersection where her career paths meet. She's written extensively on recovery from the effects of a narcissistic person or family. My Voice Can Speak is devoted to humanistic, organic and authentic recovery—with empirical grounding—from trauma. The site will officially launch later in 2020 but you can watch it evolve: My Voice Can Speak.
