The Short Version: Dr. Jamie Turndorf — also known as Dr. Love — uses psychotherapy to help her followers and clients heal childhood trauma and form stronger, less contentious relationships. But in the decade since her husband’s unexpected death in 2006, Jamie has started to explore a new kind of interpersonal healing: reconnecting with loved ones in the spiritual plane. With her new therapy — called the Trans-Dimensional Grief Resolution Method — Jamie spreads a message of hope through healing issues with loved ones who have passed away. Ultimately, Jamie’s mission is to connect souls on earth and spirit planes, but now she’s offering strategies for better communication with loved ones — both here and beyond.
Dr. Jamie Turndorf — also known as Dr. Love — is a case study in the idea that our lives are predestined. Born premature and underweight, Jamie shouldn’t have survived her birth, but she did. Still, her earliest experiences were in isolation.
“I spent the first three months in a preemie hospital all by myself. And that disconnection continued when I went home. From when I was a baby, my family abused me verbally and physically,” Jamie said. “A psychic I know said, ‘Your ministry to connect souls was born in the preemie nursery. I didn’t want to see other people suffer the pain of disconnection that I felt.”
That early struggle gave Jamie her purpose in life: to remedy the disconnection from others that her clients felt. As a psychotherapist, Jamie thought she could stop the kind of desolation she had felt as an infant and throughout her childhood. Today, she offers strategies to help her clients, visitors to her website, and the readers of her books to make stronger connections.
Until 2006, Jamie thought her role was only to give her clients and readers tools for building effective communication with loved ones on earth. But when her husband died from an allergic reaction to a bee sting in 2006, she began to reconsider her role. She began offering her followers methods for connecting with those who have, as she says, “left their bodies.”
Jamie hasn’t always believed in the afterlife, but her husband did everything he could to prove to her his soul still existed after his death.
“The minute my husband left his body, he started making his presence known to me,” Jamie said. “He started moving things, turning lights on and off, turning machines on and off. I have posted many videos on my YouTube channel, AskDrLove, of him making some amazing manifestations. He did this to show me that we don’t die, we just leave our bodies.”
Jamie has been helping others improve their relationships for 35 years. When she began her psychotherapy practice in 1983, she didn’t know where it would lead her.
“Back in the 1980s, I had a premonition that I would bring relationship advice to the world through computers, long before the internet was born,” Jamie said. “I had the vision of giving relationship advice through the internet. In the early 1990s when the web was born, I realized that was what I was seeing. So, I launched Ask Dr. Love in 1995.”
Early on, Jamie developed her unique brand of psychotherapy, called Core Therapy, which gives her clients methods for healing childhood traumas that create negative behavior patterns.
“When I help you uproot the original issue, it fixes your life in the present. Any repetition is indicative of trauma. So, let’s go back to the source, your deformative years — that’s a joke, get it? You unconsciously repeat the trauma you suffered in those deformative years to try to heal it,” Jamie said. “If we uncover the core issue and heal that, you become freed up to stop repeating the trauma in your adult relationships.”
Jamie explains her method in her book, “Kiss Your Fights Good-bye: Dr. Love’s 10 Simple Steps to Cooling Conflict and Rekindling Your Relationship.” The book offers a practical take on conflict resolution. It suggests that disagreements occur in all relationships, even healthy ones, so couples must develop effective methods for dealing with issues.
“For example, a husband and wife are out to dinner, and he keeps checking his watch to make sure he feeds the meter on time. But she doesn’t get why he’s doing it, and she blows a gasket, and she says, ‘Why do you want to get rid of me?’ Why was she so pissed?” Jamie said. “Her old scar was that her dad didn’t have time for her. The way we overreact is connected to these wounds that haven’t been healed.”
Though conflicts arise perhaps most often in romantic relationships, Jamie’s strategies are effective for all types of relationships.
“My conflict resolution method works for people who are single, married, gay, straight, young, old, romantic partners, family members, and friends,” Jamie said.
Ask Dr. Love’s motto is “Connecting Souls on Earth and Spirit Planes,” but a little over a decade ago, Jamie wouldn’t have thought of herself as someone who’d be interested in the metaphysical.
“All my life, I never believed in God. I didn’t believe in anything,” Jamie said.
But, as she explains in her No. 1 international best-selling book, “Love Never Dies: How to Reconnect and Make Peace with the Deceased,” her husband’s death changed her. Now, she is an advocate of the thinking that people don’t die; their souls simply exist in another space.
Jamie uses quantum physics research to prove that souls don’t leave the earth; they simply leave the bodies they once inhabited.
“My quantum physics research shows that 95% of our universe is made up of dark matter, not because it’s evil, but because it doesn’t reflect light,” Jamie says. “When we shed the turtle shell of our body, the energy of our soul essence remains. Energy can’t be destroyed, as Einstein said. So, the short breakdown is this: When we leave our bodies our souls move into the dark matter.”
Jamie offers strategies for connecting with loved ones in these new spaces they inhabit.
Learning to reconnect with your loved ones in spirit means tuning to the spirit channel in your brain, and sending and receiving energetic signals to and from what she calls the spirit channel.
“Once you learn how to tune to the spirit channel, you discover that your loved ones are right here. They have never left you and never will leave you. Reconnecting and staying connected is the key to lifting grief,” Jamie said. “In addition, since I can’t think of a soul alive who doesn’t harbor unfinished business with someone who’s left his or her body, my method also enables you to heal the traumas and unfinished business that still remains between you and any spirit being.”
But the relationship with deceased loved ones doesn’t have to end there, either.
“As you heal your unfinished business, you can then use your relationships with your loved ones in spirit to obtain guidance, to fulfill your destiny and prosper beyond your wildest dreams. Our lives become very prosperous when we allow our loved-ones to become our guides,” Jamie said.
Jamie is on a mission to spread the message that you can heal the pain of grief, heal unfinished business and prosper big time by reconnecting with loved ones in spirit. She does this, in part, by coaching small groups through her online “The Love Club.”
“We all need help, so one of the things I do now is offer The Love Club online” Jamie said. “I work with small groups of people who are grieving — generally widows — and guide them to reconnect and heal their unfinished business.”
To spread her love revolution, Jamie now trains and certifies coaches in her revolutionary new method.
“Individuals who are successful in The Love Club often want to become coaches, so they can spread the message that we don’t die, and that the only way to heal the pain of grief is to reconnect and stay connected” she said. “That’s why I now train and certify coaches in my Trans-Dimensional Grief Resolution Method.”
Ultimately, Jamie has transformed the pain of her childhood and husband’s death through helping others.
“My purpose in life is to connect souls,” said Jamie. “Whenever I help someone reconnect, lift the pain of grief, heal unfinished business, and experience great joy and prosperity, it’s very gratifying for me.”
