We call it Bibliotherapy in our profession.

I will be continually updating this list with books I have found to be helpful for a variety of issues. If I've mentioned a book in session hopefully you will find a link for it here.  7fef9ea6660a98907dbefa23e62f394d


Individual / Self Work

People Pleasing, Emotional Sensitivity


This is a small book with a very deep, intense experience. I'm giving it a warning label. I recommend this often for certain people. "Gifted Child" meaning here is not referring to intellectual abilities and education. 






 Rick Hanson is easy to read. I really like his ideas and approach. He is currently a leading expert in brain science- aka- the neuroplasticity of our brain's resilience and how we have the ability to change old wiring (old thinking, patterns not serving us, etc).

Excellent book!! I recommend this at any stage in your relationship. You also don't need to be in a relationship to read this and have it be very worthwhile. Feel free to check out other books by Harville Hendrix. (Please note- he has recently updated his research findings which have affected some of his tools- I would order books that have been printed in the last 5-10 years)
