In the following blogs there are numerous examples of clients in therapy struggling, coping and overcoming different mental health issues. I offer them to illustrate points, to add some interesting ideas, to make the whole enterprise of working in therapy become more real for you, the reader. None of the examples use the names of actual clients. So, if you think you see yourself (as a former or current client) or someone you might know (who is a former or current client), I am glad you can relate to the example, but be assured that I have added, removed, and modified some parts of actual client issues to make the situation different to some extent than it really was.

If you have run out of things to read on my blog page, or just want to learn more about mental health and personal growth, I have many more ideas and writings available in my book. In fact, many of the chapters in the book are modified versions of previous blog posts on this website. It is available at here at Amazon.com. in both print and Kindle format. This announcement might seem like a shameless plug. I suppose in a way it is. I want people to buy the book because I really think it is pretty good at getting to some of the thorny issues that keep people stuck in difficult places in their lives. It brings most of my previous writings and some new material all together in a single place. It doesn’t need to be read as a “book” because each of the chapters deal with discrete issues like Anger, Depression, Anxiety, Relationship Conflict, Shame, Guilt, Forgiveness and letting go, that you might find value in reading as needed, when needed. I hope you will check it out.
