I’m a psychotherapist, author and speaker, dedicated to helping people heal from betrayal trauma and heartbreak, so they can in turn create authentic, meaningful, and emotionally connected relationships in their lives.

Whether we work together in therapy, coaching or through my book, online courses and workshops, you have an inner resource INSIDE of you, which I call HOPE (see more on that below) and I want to help you find it.


Because I believe the world becomes a better place when people have the tools they need to always do their personal best, and always follow their hearts!

My “HOPE” for you boils down to three simple things.

I want to help you:

New book has hit the shelves!

Not only can you survive heartbreak and betrayal…

You can thrive in your life because of it!

You Can heal your heartbreak and learn how to thrive in your life after it!

I wrote this book to help people heal from the shattering pain of heartbreak. Whether that pain resulted from a breakup or divorce, affair, co-dependency or abuse, this book shares clinical case studies, historical stories, mythology and even sports iconography to teach people about their attachment style, which I call your “relationship map”, and how that map often leads people down the road of “Love’s Labor’s lost”. The good news is,  you can heal your attachment style, and rewrite your relationship map to help you take a U-turn onto the road of Love’s Labor’s won!

Are you ready to change direction in your life and find the love you deserve?

If so, preview and oder the book below
