Tell us about yourself and how many books you have written.
I’m a psychologist with over 20 years of experience in couples counseling and individual psychotherapy. So far, I’ve written two books, both of which deal with couples’ issues.
What is the name of your latest book and what inspired it?
It’s called ”Healing from Infidelity”. Infidelity is a very universal issue that all of us go through it or deal with it in one way or another. In addition, it’s one of the most common subjects that I have worked on in my counseling experience.
In this book, I seek to chart the path forward, allowing couples to come to terms with the affair and overcome the pain, no matter what kind of betrayal they have suffered or the depth of the wound inflicted.
Do you have any unusual writing habits?
I can contemplate and write anywhere as long as I have coffee and my laptop, be it on the plane while I’m traveling or late at night while everybody in the house is sleeping!
What authors, or books have influenced you?
There are many writers that gave me inspiration, but I should mention three of them as the most influential: John Gottman, Gary Chapman and Esther Perel.
What are you working on now?
At the moment, I’m working on my third book which offers easy to follow solutions to repair an unhappy marriage.
What is your best method or website when it comes to promoting your books?
I’m trying different methods and ways to promote my books and I have not decided yet which one to choose as the most suitable for my books.
Do you have any advice for new authors?
What I can say is that you should read a lot, you must take your time and find a subject that really inspires and motivates you personally, so much so that when you write, it feels like your making a dream come true!
What is the best advice you have ever heard?
Don’t let the bad days make you feel like you have a bad life!
What are you reading now?
I’m reading Alain de Botton’s Art of Travel and I’m loving it.
What’s next for you as a writer?
Finish writing my next book soon, on which I’m really working hard, and then send it to my editor and publish it.
If you were going to be stranded on a desert island and allowed to take 3 or 4 books with you what books would you bring?
For sure, ”Three Essays on the Theory of Sexuality”, ”Man’s Search for Meaning” and ”Love’s Executioner and Other Tales of Psychotherapy”.
