The Mission of Dr. Love

"Welcome! If you're looking to create lasting love, look no further!

For the past 30 years, I've helped millions of people cultivate passionately loving relationships through the web, my books, radio and TV. Connecting souls is truly my life's calling.

My calling was born in the crib--literally!

I was born 3 months early and remained alone in the preemie nursery for the next 3 months of my life. I've been told that my calling was born out of my own pain and the desire to help others avoid the agony of isolation and disconnection.

In my first family, pain continued for me, as fighting was the norm. From my earliest days on earth, I acted as in-house mediator. While still in diapers, I swear I'd already earned my Ph.D (more like pee h.D!) in mediation and conflict resolution!

But seriously, I did, indeed, go on to earn my Ph.D. in psychology. Soon afterwards, I created my Center for Emotional Communication where for the past 30 years I've been conducting observational research and perfecting my life changing relationship advice methods with real people.

Here at, I've been sharing my cutting edge research and methods, for free, for the past 19 years. My methods have literally helped millions of people create lasting love. (Don't believe me. Just read all the unsolicited testimonials.)

Just so you know, I'm not some ivory tower doctor who doesn't walk the walk. I was married and passionately in love with my husband for nearly 30 years until he died of a bee sting eight years ago. Our bond was so strong that our relationship didn't end in death. You can read more about my spiritual experiences with him on my grief therapy page, which is accessed by the contact drop down menu. My story with my husband in spirit form will soon be released by Hay House under the title Love Never Dies: How to Reconnect and Make Peace with the Deceased.

You should also know that my methods create loving relationships with friends, family members and also yourself.

If you want to learn my proven method for transforming conflict to connection and turning any relationship into an overflowing oasis of love, order your copy of my latest Hay House book Kiss Your Fights Good-bye: Dr. Love's 10 Simple Steps to Cooling Conflict and Rekindling Your Relationship. My book is endorsed by #1 NY Times Bestselling authors Jack Canfield (Chicken Soup for the Soul book empiret), John Gray (Men are From Mars Women are from Venus), John Bradshaw (Homecoming), and Harvard Professor of Psychiatry, John Mack, MD.

If you've already separated or begun the divorce process, Make Up Don't Break Up: Dr. Love's Five-Step Plan For Reconciling with Your Ex will show you how to bring your relationship back from the brink. My proven make-up method is down-to-earth and easy to follow and will put you on the road to reconciliation right away.

If you're ready to create love that lasts a lifetime and beyond, welcome! I'm here to guide you every step of the way.

I wish you all the love in the world.
