About Susan Allan

As a certified Mediator and communication expert I created The Marriage Forum, Inc. as a 501 c 3 nonprofit corporation so that people around the world can successfully navigate relationships and create peaceful, loving intimacy with loved ones. Having developed Heartspace®, a unique system of proven and tested skills, clients receive relationship coaching, marriage coaching, reconciliation training or divorce coaching and mediation to co-create the relationships they desire and you may also use me as your mediator to keep your family together. Heartspace® offers you a Recipe for A Happy Marriage & Committed Partnership!


I’ve spent $1 million on workshops, intensives, seminars and trainings so that you don’t have to! Are you're looking for intimacy skills so that you can find or develop a new wonderful relationship that nourishes and delights both of you? Do you need relationship advice to transform your marriage? Are you looking for support so that you can learn how to create an amicable divorce without court?  IN the state of California the average cost of a divorce is $50,000; don't you want peace and cooperation and passion instead of expenses and suffering? 

I offer one complimentary telephone session to discuss your needs; please let me help you! 


An expert in various Western and Eastern methodologies I am a certified mediator of the Los Angeles County Bar Association, Companies, I am an expert in Nonviolent Communication®, studying with founder, Marshall Rosenberg, Ph.D. and I am a certified trainer for the Herrmann Brain Dominance™ thinking styles used by 90% of Fortune™ I have also made 57 trips to India including attendance at The Oneness University and I’m a meditation teacher for Sixth Star cruises. Find the lifelong love that you desire with these breakthrough skills that really work whether you need a dating coach; marriage or divorce coach and/or certified mediator.

Heartspace® has been called The Rosetta Stone for communication; the place to begin if your goal is peaceful and effective connections between partners, lovers, coworkers, neighbors, friends or family.
