Pretty much everybody experiences heartbreak at some point in their lives. Oftentimes, this experience leaves us feeling abandoned, hurt, and betrayed. Because of this trauma, we find it hard to enter into a new relationship without feeling anxious. 

Our guest, Monica Parikh, is here to show us that no matter how broken we may feel, we can still attract a positive relationship. She hopes to help women build practical skills that can enable them to de-escalate conflict, set boundaries, break codependency and interdependence, and find their life’s purpose. 

About Guest/Topic

Monica Parikh is a lawyer, teacher, writer, healer, and love coach. Despite having an Ivy League education, she discovered the greatest lessons in life from her coaches and psychologists. This led her to begin her mission to build a love revolution through the School of Love NYC. Nowadays, Monica helps women attract all of life’s riches from a place of higher consciousness.

Like most of us, Monica experienced a very traumatic heartbreak after her husband of 10 years walked out of her life. She was left alone and in tears without any explanation and closure. This urged her to take her game to the next level, which she admitted was hard work. Through this ordeal, Monica was able to create meaningful conversations about the real worth of a woman.
