Zanny, aka Suzanne Maiden, M.A., Family Therapist, certified grief counselor, and co-host of TheDivaCast Internet talk show, recently merged her professional experience with broadcasting to produce Dear Zanny, a one-of-a-kind virtual cozy couch where listener’s plop down their most confidential concerns. The online audio advice column offers a compassionate ear, a sympathetic shoulder, and sound suggestions to the world’s most universal relationship dilemmas.
Do you need to set firm boundaries with a toxic friend or family member? Maybe your child has suicidal tendencies or is engaging in the disturbing new trend of “cutting” (self injurious behavior). Is your spouse depressed, addicted, or abusive? Do you suspect he/she is caught up in an extramarital affair? Listeners are encouraged to email or call into the Dear Zanny hotline with their concerns. Zanny posts questions to her website, minus any identifiers for anonymity, and shares answers on-air in a radio-style format with concise considerations, suggestions, and resources.
Is Dear Zanny a substitution for professional counseling? Absolutely not. Zanny is quick to point out her show is for entertainment purposes only. Her talk show is an excellent place to touch one’s toe into the sometimes-intimidating reflecting pool of therapy, but is never intended to substitute for professional help.
To ask an anonymous question, call the Dear Zanny hotline at (678) 884-0524 or visit www.DearZanny.com.

Carrie from Words To Mouth LOVES Dear Zanny
Suzanne Maiden is one of the most compassionate people on the planet. This "Ann Landers-of-the-Internet" podcast & blog offers expert advice about everyday relationship and personal issues. I don't think there is anything one could propose that would shock Suzanne--she's heard most everything as a Family Therapist. Dear Zanny offers practical advice that helps us move in a positive direction. I love that this podcast/blog is anonymous...no one needs to know it's you calling or writing in with a somewhat quirky question. I recommend Dear Zanny highly and hope others refer the show to friends ~ What a gift--free therapy! ;)
Its extremely fun to listen you and your zanniness!!!! JP
