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.
