Dr. Joni Frater & Esther Lastique did not start out as relationship experts. After graduating from Columbia University and Tufts Dental School, Joni taught clinical dentistry while beginning her private practice. Dr. Joni focused on helping patients conquer extreme fear of visiting "The Dentist". Her research and study in this area yielded a unique approach employing humor, patience and sensitivity. She became known as the specialist for phobic patients for over 20 years. Joni's previous experience helped her to refocus her talents to employ those same skills of understanding to educate and change lives through her work as an author, speaker and health advocate. Esther Lastique has spent her life as an educator, fighting for women's rights and gay rights. While in college at SUNY Stony Brook, she served on the board of the Student Government, the Women's Center and The Gay & Lesbian Alliance. In 1989, she was chosen as one of Glamour Magazine's Top Ten College Women for her commitment to activism. After graduating, Esther established Passions Gallery, an eclectic art collection that specialized in the beauty of the human body, for 14 years in Provincetown, MA which is how she and Joni met. And the rest, as they say, is history.
