During our first year of marriage, a well respected therapist told us that we should get a divorce. I’m glad that we didn’t listen to her! In fact, it made me more determined to make my relationship work.This incident catapulted me on a quest to find the best way to help people achieve happy and loving relationships. Tom and I have now been together (dating, living together and marriage) for over 34 years and are extremely happy. This whole experience has helped me to assist people in healing their relationships.
I specialize in helping people have the relationship of their heart’s desire by transforming an existing relationship, by attracting a loving partner into their life, or by improving their relationship with themselves.
So many people are frustrated with dating and either don’t believe that having a loving relationship is possible for them or they are in a monotonous or problematic relationship that has lost its vibrancy.
With my help, Katey and Daniel recovered from the effects of an affair. They are now happier and closer then they could ever have imagined. In our coaching sessions, Fred felt repulsion toward his wife. After a few sessions with me that repulsion dissipated and he feels completely connected to her. Step by step, I helped Mary and Karen who were single and feeling alone find and develop loving, committed relationships. Clara and Elise were guided through the process of loving and accepting themselves–the good, bad, and the ugly!
Interviewer and business coach, Natalie Hill, described me as someone who helps people who don’t even dare to dream bring a joyful, loving relationship into their reality. She said, “Pam is masterful at locating and disarming anything blocking people from achieving lasting, vibrant love and attracting the love they want.”
I have an active lifestyle and love to move my body. For fun I dance, bike ride, hike, lead adult improvisational play groups and women’s empowerment groups. I live with my beloved husband and daughter in Tucson, Arizona. In the summers, we stay in South Jersey where my son lives.
