My name is Desiree Angeline Swaen, locally known as DS Love Coach.

I'm an Aruban-born transformational coach, focused on self-development for relationship improvement.

I'm very passionate about following my calling and uplifting the people around me.

I'm a 49-year-old mom of two teenagers. 

21 years ago I met my soul mate and we've been happily married for almost 19 years now.

I bring my unique background and experience as a former lawyer and creative entrepreneur, to explore options and solutions and offer guidance and support to singles and couples from diverse backgrounds.


Before becoming a professional coach, I earned my master’s degree in Aruban law in 1997 and worked as a lawyer for a decade.

In 2007, I retired from law practice and became an independent legal counsel and entrepreneur until mid-2017.

In 2016 I found my true calling in relationship coaching.

On February 14, 2018, I started my coaching practice.

In 2022, ​I added 'author' to the list, by pouring all my creativity into ten books, which are currently available on Amazon.

In 2023 my practice expanded to include non-romantic relationships, such as meaningful friendships, family, and professional relationships.


Throughout my life and career, people have reached out to me to help them find effective solutions to their problems. As a lawyer, I was struck by the number of clients I met, who didn't want a divorce but couldn't see any other option. Back then I had a different life purpose.

Now, my mission is to provide my clients with professional coaching to overcome their personal and relationship challenges. A mission that is very close to my heart.


​I focus on self-development with the ultimate goal of relationship improvement.

And for a very good reason.

It all starts with you.

There are many reasons why you might feel unhappy or unfulfilled in life. Maybe you feel that no matter what you do, things never seem to work out and you'll never reach your true potential, or that you've been unfairly denied what you deserve, that people don't understand you, or that your friends are always smarter, more fortunate, better than you. And these things might make you feel powerless, unworthy, and even angry sometimes.

I've been there too!

The truth is: Nobody is 100% happy, even when their lives and relationships seem to be flawless or "Insta-perfect".

We all have our burdens and our struggles. We've all messed up, often in many ways.

But one thing's for sure: If we keep refusing to address our internal struggles, we will not be the only ones suffering. All our relationships will suffer. We will constantly project our negativity onto others: Our partners, our family, our friends, our colleagues; even strangers on the street.

Human beings are social beings. Our relationships will always be an important factor in our level of happiness.

If you feel that the world is against you, allow me to help you get unstuck and become the person you were meant to be. 

Stop holding yourself back. Take action towards a better life and better relationships.

​I'm here for you.
