Psychologist's Library

Here is a list of self-help books and interesting reads as general suggestions for informational purposes. These are books that I have found to be particularly thought-provoking, helpful, and uniquely insightful. 

A book is an opportunity to learn and explore in a general manner, rather than a specific treatment in and of itself. When a book is given in conjunction with treatment it is called Bibliotherapy (which this list is not). By providing a list of books and links my goal is to help provide information about the best resources I have found. 

I encourage you to approach the selection of your reading material in a manner characterized with diligence and honoring of your unique circumstances. Consultation with a mental health professional can help assist you to choose between the options provided.

If any of the books lists peak your interest I am available to meet and begin a bibliotherapy service agreement with you. If you are working with a mental healthcare provider already I suggest you collaborate with them in regards to choosing the best books for you and your specific needs in your particular circumstance.
