My conversation this week is a very deep dive with one of the wisest people I’m privileged to know. Ruthie Portnoy is a Couples Therapist, EFT Practitioner and Life Coach. She’s also mother to nine kids! 

Ruthie's dream is to empower individuals and couples to find their best selves and to enjoy a more loving, rich and meaningful life.

She is the person I turn to whenever I have a struggle that I need help with. She’s the person who helped me when I got very stuck in grief when my Dad passed away. She is a teacher, a guide and an inspiration to me - and to countless others. I hope you’ll be as inspired by her as I am.
