I'm a clinical psychologist specializing in women's mental health, parenting, grief/loss, self-esteem/self-worth, and maternal mental health. I have a private practice one day a week and spend the rest of my work time writing and speaking. I'm also write for my popular blog, "The Psychologist, The Mom, & Me" on my website, http://www.drchristinahibbert.com.

I'm a mom of six great kids, ages 6 to 17, which keeps me very busy. I still feel like a stay-at-home mom, since I work only when they are in school or asleep!

In my limited "free" time, I love reading, writing, songwriting and singing, and naps. Oh, and I also love dark chocolate—Ghiradelli 72%.

My first book, This Is How We Grow, shares my family's true story of loss and how we overcame and "chose to grow" through it. Already a bestseller on Amazon, it is a memoir with a self-help feel and demonstrates the power of the human spirit. I am currently working on my next book on the topic of Self-Esteem After a Breakup, for New Harbinger publications.
