This is the personal story of a psychologist living with an emotionally abusive partner and her struggles, both personal and institutional, in leaving. No Room to Breathe: A Memoir of Emotional Abuse, Motherhood, and Resilience is a cautionary tale that reveals the often publicly unseen and underestimated dynamics and patterns of emotionally-abusive relationships. It also highlights their potentially far-reaching consequences, particularly when attempts are made to leave the relationship, and children are used as pawns.

As a licensed therapist for more than 30 years, Dr Coha worked with many challenging people. When it came to her personal life however, her professional credentials as a clinical psychologist and clinical social worker did not help her to avoid entering into an emotionally-controlling relationship. Lorettas experience speaks to many peoples lives. Her story covers many complicating factors and powerful forces, such as health, children, the involvement of the judicial system, and the fact that her partner was a public figure. Although her significant other was a woman, the life-impacting results are the same for anyone who has ever been involved with a controlling partner. No Room to Breathe is ultimately an inspiring account of a woman using her personal strength to break away and create a new, healthy life for herself and her children.

Dr Coha is a clinical psychologist with over thirty years of experience helping people deal with mental illness, substance addiction, and workplace threats of violence. Despite her wealth of professional and psychological knowledge, she found herself in an emotionally abusive and controlling relationship with her partner. After adopting her two children from an orphanage in Kazakhstan, Loretta was forced to face the truth of her relationship. Her book, No Room to Breathe: A Memoir of Emotional Abuse, Motherhood, and Resilience, is a cautionary tale that is both gut-wrenching and relatable. And it needs to be shared.
