Question: Who is the intended audience?
Answer: This book is intended for anyone who realizes that their life is not bringing them the joy and satisfaction desired. Though it is likely to appeal to those at midlife who are questioning the meaning of their lives, it is truly applicable to anyone who is self-reflective.

Q: What is the book about?
A: Each person is entitled to have “the good life.” Most don’t experience this because they are caught up in reacting and continually recycling old patterns that keep them stuck and emotionally frozen. By practicing the simple tools in this book, the reader will learn how to live mindfully and create a great life.

Q: Why are you the best person to write this book?
A: Not only am I a psychologist in private practice, but I have had a personal journey that was quite difficult. From my own life, I realized that one does not have to be a prisoner to their past. The tools in this book are ones I’ve used — to help myself and others. Old knee-jerk reactions can be changed and emotional wounds can be healed. I lived it and I teach it and know what works.

Q: How is this book different from other books on this topic?

Q: Is there anything else we should know about this book?
A: You can change the way you have been doing things — even the things that have been automatic. The feedback from others has been overwhelmingly positive because it works.
