Hi, I’m Joey
Relationship Expert, Wellness Consultant, Social Activist and Writer— dedicating my insight, creativity and wisdom to help you expand joy and success in love, work and life.
Thought Leader. Change Agent. Healer.
For more than 20 years, I’ve written a relationship advice column read by over 300,000 people weekly and I’m a go-to expert for TV and radio. As an award-winning poet and author, I lead creativity and writing workshops in the U.S. & Belize. I’m trained in the healing arts, including meditation and yoga.
In my previous careers as a corporate executive, journalist and educator, I met so many people who felt stuck and unhappy. They wanted passion, a clear purpose, better relationships. They tried to contribute to the goodness of the world but somewhere along the line, they got derailed. Some even gave up.
It’s Your Turn to Shine.
The world needs the gifts you were born to give: your talent, your message, your legacy. I’m here to help. Let’s get started —
- Teens Need Parents with Boundaries October 20, 2017 - Adults learn how to be parents by engaging in the experience of parenting, but they aren’t experts going in. Parents might try to mimic or avoid attitudes and behaviors that their own parents engaged in, but ultimately, it’s a hands-on job. Mistakes, and ill-informed arguments, are common. Reading books on parenting helps to build knowledge, but knowledge informs the intellect, it doesn’t necessarily inspire wise parenting. The key is for parents to be self-aware regarding their own emotional triggers, and to have the self-discipline to respond, instead of overreacting. That’s incredibly challenging, of course, and that’s why good parenting is a truly a spiritual practice. But teens can help their parents learn how to parent wisely. Here's how...
- On my Birthday, the Gift of Reality October 17, 2017 - Ever argue with reality? As in: “This shouldn’t be happening!” or “You can’t do this to me!”
I have—too often. Life has handed me experiences—each one a valuable lesson, an education in learning to embrace what is. Sometimes, I resist. Resistance often prolongs my own suffering and stress. But I'm learning another way to live, and it's powerful secret I want to share with you.
- Staying in Love with the World Despite Tragedies in the News October 16, 2017 - If you’re feeling hopeless, angry, or stressed, please don’t withdraw from intimacy with the planet. Yes, the most common prescription is to fast from the media and the Internet. Popular sayings like: “You can’t give what you don’t have” justify pulling away. But a habit of withdrawing from reality can mean the loss of an opportunity to evolve. Here's how to care for yourself while also staying conscious and available to heal the planet.
