Recommended Reading

Many clients find that the experience of psychotherapy can be enhanced by reading materials pertinent to the issues they are dealing with in their personal therapy.  I have compiled a list of books that some people have found to be helpful adjuncts to their therapy.  This is by no means a complete list and I encourage clients to send me the names of books or articles that they have found to be particularly illuminating or clarifying of different psychological issues.
