Book List

Here is a book list of psychology, personal growth and self-help books. After many requests from clients and therapists for books worth reading, finally I am happy to begin this list. I will be adding to it as time goes on.

This list is in no particular order:

  • The Body Keeps The Score, Brain, mind and body in the healing of trauma. By Bessel Van Der Kolk. Many of my clients found this book very valuable.
  • It Didn’t Start With You, How inherited family trauma shapes who we are and how to end the cycle. By Mark Wolynn
  • Letting Go. By David Hawkins
  • The Courage to Heal, A guide for women survivors of sexual abuse. By Ellen Bass & Laura Davis. 
  • The 5 Love Languages, The secret to love that lasts. By Gary Chapman
  • Practically Shameless, How shadow work helped me find my voice, my path, and my inner gold. By Alyce Barry
  • The Artist’s Way, A spiritual path to higher creativity. By Julia Cameron
  • Learning To Fall, The blessings of an imperfect life. By Philip Simmons
  • Healing From Trauma, A survivors guide to understanding your symptoms and reclaiming your life. By Jasmin Lee Cori
  • Man’s Search For Meaning. By Victor Frankl
  • Complex PTSD: From Surviving to Thriving. By Pete Walker
  • Discover the Power Within You. By Eric Butterworth
  • A Course In Miracles. I have done this yearly course and read the whole book at least 4x. I believe this did as much to transform my life as anything else. Even though many people can’t get past the difficult language, religious references, etc. No matter your spiritual beliefs or none at all, this book is well-worth your time. In the beginning many things made no sense. Though eventually nothing made more sense and is more enlightening than what this book communicates. 
  • What To Say When You Talk To Your Self. By Shad Helmstetter. This was his first book and a bit wordy. Check out the many he has written since, they might be better. This is a very important key to achieving a healthy emotional and mental state.
  • Be Heard Now, End your fear of public speaking forever. Tap into you inner speaker and communicate with ease. By Lee Glickman.
  • Nonviolent Communication, The language of life. By Marshall Rosenberg 
  • Trauma and Recovery. By Judith Herman
