The reason I am so passionate about what I do is that I have not only the professional experience but have gone through a personal journey of my own. I really understand how empowering a transformation can be. After practicing as a therapist for over 10 years, I moved to California with my now ex-husband and young children and was blind-sided with divorce. I was forced to suddenly make a lot of changes internally, externally and professionally.
After losing a lot of pregnancy weight, I got a new colorful wardrobe with better fitting clothes and started feeling better about myself. As my confidence grew, I started attracting more people (men included) and opportunities. I decided to focus my career on helping others with the same painful issues I had gone through and encourage their own personal transformation.
I was a University of Chicago-trained therapist for over 10 years, then I moved to California and trained with one of the top Image Consultants in Los Angeles, Ashley Rothschild at The Rothchild Image. I obtained a certification in Style Coaching through the Style Coaching Institute in the UK which teaches the unique combined use of life coaching, NLP and styling.
Today I run the VIP division at one of the largest nationwide matchmaking companies, Elite Matchmaking in Beverly Hills, CA. I infuse image consulting and dating coaching as part of this unique matchmaking process.
My specialty is helping people with dating after divorce. I am a regular contributor to the Huffington Post Divorce and you can see my other articles and videos as an expert on YourTango.com, Yahoo Shine, AOL and Fox News Magazine.
