About the Author

Nella Coiro a trained and experienced counselor, and she holds both undergraduate and graduate degrees in psychology, and a certificate in alcoholism and addiction counseling. She is also a Certified Life Coach, a Certified Mindfulness Practitioner and a Certificated Reiki Master Practitioner.

However, her greatest joy has always been writing.  She shares, “I have always loved to express myself through my writing, and I’m very excited to be publishing my first book, The Forgiveness Journey.”  Nella has been writing for several decades, and her articles and poetry have been published in Studio East Magazine and Supervision Journal.

Nella has overcome much adversity in her life, and was able to rise above it. However, she struggled with forgiveness. Her own journey of forgiveness has completely transformed her life. She shares,  “I  embraced certain resentments for two decades, 175,200 hours, to be exact! Wasted time, wasted energy.”

Aside from writing, she is a musician, plays several instruments, has performed in bands, and has composed music. She also enjoys painting,  and she finds it relaxing. She has donated some of her art to charities for fundraising efforts. 

Nella was born and raised in the city, and currently, lives in the country with her husband, Kenny, her basset hound, Penelope, and her  mixed-breed foxhound, Alex. When she’s not writing, she can be found strumming  the guitar, curling up with a good book, volunteering to help those who are grieving the loss of their animal companions, or simply relaxing with her hubby and their two fur kids.
