My newest book, Object of Obsession, is now available on amazon.com as a paperback and as an ebook.
I’m proud of, What Do I Say? The Therapist’s Guide To Answering Client’s Questions published in May, 2011, and co-authored with Charlie Waehler. We wrote the book for early career therapists. We know that new clinicians experience anxiety about answering questions and this book is designed to explain the place of questions, provide examples of answers, and advance the therapeutic process.
