My work life is multi-faceted.
I have an active international psychotherapy practice in which I work with clients both in my lovely Montreal office with a fireplace and by phone or Skype worldwide.
I’m the founder and director of the Sedona Counselling Centre of Montreal, where we have thirty therapists offering a full range of wellness services to our community.
I’m also an international guest expert on television and radio on issues related to mental health and emotional well being, notably appearing on NBC’s The Today Show and Oprah radio. I was featured in Time Magazine and Maclean’s (Canada), among many other media appearances.
I write a blog called Schlepping Through Heartbreak for Psychology Today magazine that has had over 1.5 million views.
I have written three books and edited a fourth. My first book is about sister relationships and the other three are about divorce and divorce recovery. As a result of one of my books, Runaway Husbands, I lead a worldwide community of women supporting each other through recovery from sudden unexpected divorces (learn more at the Runaway Husbands website.)
I’m a New Yorker but moved to Montreal in the 80’s and feel at home in both places! I practiced Buddhism in my twenties so eastern thought informs my practice. I love nature, puzzles, walking, yoga, my little dog Chloe, world music and anything that makes me laugh.
