My name is Carmen Sakurai and I’m a Certified Professional Life Strategist specializing in Breakup Recovery and Narcissistic Abuse Recovery. I have a BSc in Psychology and I’m a Certified Practitioner of several styles of Psychotherapy Coaching, with over 20 years of education and experiences in mental & behavioral health.
But my qualifications are only relevant because I’ve experienced the horrible pain, frustration, and confusion that you’re living right now…
And honestly? After having to repeatedly resuscitate and heal my broken heart and shattered self-esteem, I was DONE. I just couldn’t anymore… I was sick and tired of feeling sad and broken. I didn’t want to feel like a pathetic, ugly failure anymore.
So I threw all my knowledge, research, and first-hand experiences to find solid methods to release the unhealthy bonds, mend my broken heart, reprogram my brain to see myself in a loving & positive light… and gain the confidence to face the red-flags and walk away (vs. tolerate questionable behavior due to fear of missing out).
I want to help you do the same.

Whether you did the breaking up, or you were broken up with, a breakup can fill your head with thoughts like:
