HI! I am Ana Loiselle. My struggle began as a young child in a dysfunctional home, barely able to understand what was happening and why.
As an adult, I continued to experience fighting, blaming, and way too many ups and downs in my relationships. My marriage was, ultimately, a sad one. We needed communication and conflict resolution help that simply wasn’t available at that time. Sure, there was therapy, and we tried it, but the harsh truth is that 80 percent of couples in therapy don’t make it.
Not long after our therapy attempts, we were nothing more than a statistic… and I was in very deep despair. Ultimately, after my denial dissolved, I realized it wasn’t about changing my partner or finding a better one—it was about CHANGING me!
Once I was able to pull myself out of bed, shower regularly and pick up all the empty ice cream containers, I began to realize that something inside of me was shifting. I couldn’t stop thinking about helping others in my situation. Although my marriage couldn’t be saved, perhaps I could find a way to help other drowning unions. I swapped ice cream for research… and I’ve never looked back.
