Q: Why are you the best person to write this book?
A: I am a psychotherapist in private practice for 25 years in Connecticut.
My first book, From Ex-Wife to Exceptional Life: A Woman’s Journey through Divorce won an honorable mention award from the Independent Publishers Association. It has helped thousands of women recover from divorce and find joy in their new lives.
When they began dating again, their stories of internet dating became the inspiration for this book. Profileactics assists the reader in developing a more discerning eye, not only about what not to write but also about whom not to date.
Q: How is this book different from other books on this topic?

Q: Is there anything else we should know about this book?
A: Profileactics will help single Baby Boomers craft a better profile and assist them in finding the love they want; it will challenge the reader to look more deeply into themselves—beyond childhood dreams and stereotypical expectations of gender and relationship. This self-reflection will result in a heightened self-awareness and a clearer picture of what they long for in a relationship.
