How Women Can Heal Their Sensitive Hearts and Live and Love as Their True Selves

by Andrea Paquette, MSN, APRN, Holistic Nurse Practitioner

About the Book

“A transformational journey for women!”

12 million women’s lives are affected by depression in the US and 23.4% of women in the US suffer with anxiety. Traditional treatments like medication and therapy are failing to provide the high quality of life women deserve.

Lovable shines a light on a little-known underlying cause of these conditions, childhood emotional neglect, giving women new hope and strength to heal from these diagnoses.

Lovable is a guidebook to full, authentic self-expression for women.

Includes a multi-layered holistic healing plan for women suffering from low self-worth, shame and emotional dysregulation

Case studies highlight emotional neglect experienced by young girls that is normalized in our culture.

Extensive Healing section combines well-researched psychological and spiritual concepts, practices, and tools to support nurturing and self-healing.

Readers’ Comments

What’s not to love when a book starts with “I met Amy Gray at the bar…” The Healing sections after each chapter in the book guide the reader in her search to find true self. You too can be lovable, like Andrea!

—Julie Pelletier-Rutkowski, MS, RN, Feng Shui practitioner, WSMN radio host of Wicked Healthy Radio.

Lovable has an extensive Healing section, providing a well-researched, evidence-based roadmap of tools and practices to support self-healing, self-compassion and self-expression. These include mindfulness, heart-brain coherence exercises, visualization, breathwork, body scans and journaling. 

—Kathleen M Miller, PhD, RN, AHN-BC

The messages in this book are powerful… My favorite is the Daily Mindfulness Practice list.

—Holly Wright, PhD, FNP-BC, Family Nurse Practitioner

I read the book in a matter of hours because I couldn’t put it down. Now I am able to go back to it and utilize the helpful techniques. 

—Vicki Kirby, MSN, FNP-BC, Family Nurse Practitioner

Refreshing, powerful and beautifully written…. This is the kind of book that has the power to change lives, permanently. You will want to share it with others, so perhaps it’s best to buy a few.

—Pipa Gordon, Writer and Broadcaster


When Andrea wrote, “this book will break your heart and then help you mend it,” she wasn’t kidding…

—Alice Kelly, Writer
