Approximately eight years ago, I thought I had it all: a terrific husband, a fulfilling career and a beautiful home. Until one day my husband proclaimed that he no longer wanted to be married and walked out the door. No explanation. No fighting. No drama.
Without answers or closure, I was heartbroken, confused and devastated. I cried until I had no tears left. Despite an Ivy League education, I was failing at the thing that mattered most to me — a loving and happy relationship.
My heartbreak became
the catalyst for a better and
more authentic life.
I got busy — figuring out my part, undoing old habits that no longer served me and studying attraction and communication from relationship experts. I also dated prolifically, putting these principles into action to figure out what works and what doesn't.
Now, I teach women and men how to:
- Transcend heartbreak, using it as a catalyst for self-analysis and improvement;
- Date effectively by tackling limiting thoughts and ineffective behaviors;
- Develop emotional intelligence to identify and attract high-caliber candidates;
- Cultivate emotional stability, so that intimacy between partners deepens over time; and
- Resolve conflict utilizing non-violent communication techniques.
My clients report feeling stronger,
more confident and empowered.
They also attract healthy
and available people.
Many fall in love for the first time.
A graduate of Northwestern University and Cornell Law School, I have learned that school does not prepare us for relationship literacy. My writing weaves together dating advice with positive psychology and spiritual truths. I try to keep it simple and real, so I can help others achieve a healthy relationship—the most important factor for a lifetime of happiness.
I write for international publications like MindBodyGreen and Bustle.com, coach private clients and give motivational speeches. My work has been featured in Marie Claire Magazine, The New York Post, and The Jenny McCarthy Show on Sirius XM radio.
In my free time, I enjoy international backpacking, gourmet cooking, and hip-hop music. Before sunrise, you can find me boxing, biking or standing on my head. My relationships are the most valuable asset in my portfolio and the yardstick by which I'll measure my life's success. If you see me in NYC (or any other far-flung locale), stop and say hi. I've never met a stranger.
In 2017, I will finish "Take Back the Power"—my guidebook for those surviving a breakup.
