Cohan is author of For Better, For Worse, Forever: Discover the Path to Lasting Love, which she co-wrote with her husband Elliot, and writes an Ask Beatty column for numerous papers. She's a public speaker, operates a private practice and was appointed to Florida's Commission on Marriage and Family Initiatives by Governor Jeb Bush.
