My Philosophy

Life is abundant and for celebration.
— Dr. Brenda Schaeffer
The past, present and future are all really one; you are only looking at the past that is present now in your psyche, and interfering with your future.
— Dr. Brenda Schaeffer



I approach both life and work with sincerity, honesty, and compassion. To me, there is nothing more rewarding than seeing a client making healthy changes.



With over 600,000 of publications in print and in eleven languages, best seller Is It Love or Is It Addiction?, Loving Me Loving You, Love’s Way, The Healthy Relationships Series,  and  Love or Addiction?
