Life Coach for Women
 in Alcoholic Relationships

I help women who know they should/need to leave their alcoholic relationship understand what really needs to happen to make that decision without FEAR or REGRET.

Loving an Alcoholic is Hard

And more than anything you just want to feel happy and have some peace.

But mostly it feels hopeless.

You think you should have left this relationship long ago.


You think they have given you every reason to leave,

yet you still stayed.

You have left before, but only to return and recognize that

nothing has changed.

You think about all the time you have lost.

You think that you should have done something by now.

But you haven't. And you think maybe you never will.

Worst of all you think maybe this is just your destiny and you will need to ride this out til death due you part.

But if you do, will you ever truly feel happy or will you always wonder, what if?

I want you to know something…
it is NEVER too late to change your life.

You may think your too old or too tired and that nothing will improve or that you may never find someone to love you again.

It's just not True! 

The way you are thinking about your ability and future is the only thing causing you pain and keeping you stuck. 

And once you realize why you haven't been able to move on from this relationship, you will see that the answer is so simple.

And it comes down to the answer you have for only 1 Question!


The Truth Is...

YOU have done everything you could to try to save this relationship.

YOU have stayed for the kids and for your partner.

YOU are tired of doing for others and you want to start enjoying your life.

YOU want to be happier, but you worry about making the wrong decision.

YOU want to know when is YOUR TIME to start being loved and cared for?

YOU know that if you don't do something now, nothing will change and you will be living in the same situation for the next 5, 10, 15 years.

You want to leave, but tell yourself "it's too hard", but isn't life hard for you now?

Hi, I'm Deanna

I want your life to be filled with happiness and love and if you want that too, I can help.

I understand what it feels like to be in an alcoholic relationship.

I was married to an alcoholic for almost 20 years.  During that time I tried everything I could to save our relationship. 

I suffered in that relationship just like you are suffering now. 


I had the same feelings and thoughts that you are currently experiencing right now.


I was embarrassed, ashamed, humiliated, discouraged, angry and beaten down from living with an alcoholic.

And on top of that I beat myself up with guilt and disappointment, telling myself how stupid I was to have stayed in this relationship and how I should have "known better".

But even during this dark time there was always a part of me that knew

I deserved better.

So I started to get help, first with Al-Anon and then therapy and slowly my life started to change.

I learned to create boundaries, I no longer accepted lies, I found my voice and it started to build my confidence.

It took sometime, but when the time finally came to choose between taking him back yet again or putting my kids and myself first, I chose us!

It was the hardest and best decision I ever made.

The one thing I recognized in that period of my life is how few resources there are for women in alcoholic relationships and how many there are for the alcoholic.

So I got certified as a Life Coach to offer women another option beyond Al-Anon and Therapy.

I had searched for someone who could have helped me while I was in my relationship.  Someone who could understand what I was going through but would not judge me.  Someone who could support me and believe in me when I did not.

If I had found this person years ago, perhaps I would have recognized what was keeping me stuck in this relationship.

And it is hard to believe but it was simply... my Thoughts.

If I had known then what I know now, I would have left sooner and saved myself a lot of heartache.

Because like you, I too just wanted to be happy!

And now I am, I have a new career, an amazing guy and a life that would have never been possible if I didn't go after the happiness that I knew was possible for me.

And that's what I want for you to find love, peace and the happiness that is possible for YOU TOO!

 I liked the idea of talking with someone who lived this life with an alcoholic…. Who KNEW what I was saying and feeling…. Someone who can relate and be able to finish my sentences because they experienced the exact same thing.  Deanna showed me that life really does go on- I was never alone, and she helped me regain my self worth.  Thank you so much Deanna!
