In the age of modern love, where people long to live authentically, many find themselves in a crisis of  lost love. Whether they are going through a divorce, dealing with infidelity, trying to manage a manipulative partner or find themselves alone again and starting over, there is an anchor of hope inside of them and creative solution to their crisis. Utilizing the age old art of storytelling, this book shows the reader through clinical case studies, historical stories, mythology and even sporting events, how psychotherapy can help them find their inner hope and courage, so they can take a U-turn off the road of Love's Labor's Lost and travel down the road of Love's Labor's Won.

Wonderfully authentic. Maura Matarese has written a book that emphasizes the importance of the Socratic message with all the excitement of opening day at Fenway Park. If you read this book, you will feel that the game of love, loss and courage is definitely worth playing.

A terrific book. Maura Matarese shows us how psychotherapy is not for the fain of heart, yet no matter what the crisis, there’s always hope.

Healthy, Happy and Authentic Relationships Matter.


I am passionate about inspiring people to make courageous, bold and authentic choices in their lives and relationships.  


Because your life matters. How you live it matters. And who you share it with matters.

Happy, healthy, fun, playful and passionate relationships are the cornerstone to health and wellness. The quality of them, what we bring to them and what receive from them makes a difference in the quality of our lives. This includes first and foremost, the relationship we have with ourselves.

This site is dedicated to educating and creating conversation about relational issues and all matters of the heart. I invite you join me in this conversation as we open up new doors and avenues that shape our understanding of what living authentically really means and how to do that with the ones we love.

I look forward to meeting you- whether it's at a talk, online or in my office.
