Some people say that having powerful negative challenges in our childhood is designed to strengthen us for the work we've come to the planet to do.

This has been true for Ilene, whose early childhood was marked by the loss of her birth mother at age 3, constant moving with her military family, sexual molestation and physical abuse. Now, at age 71, Ilene is full of the learning and wisdom she has picked up as part of overcoming the challenges and obstacles of her life. A family therapist for 42 years, Ilene is also a professional speaker, coach, transformation specialist, CCFL Expert, author and has been host of her own radio show, Full Power Living, for 11 years.

Known as 'The Emotional Pro, Ilene offers her expert help with parenting consciously, mastering emotions, ending co-dependence and transforming life during these tumultuous times. She's the author of 'The ABCs of Anger,' and is here to discuss Mastering Emotions.
