Synopsis

In more than 25 years of private practice, Dr. Dan Briddell has worked with patients from all walks of life, with problems that range from everyday to extraordinary. With great empathy, humor, and a sometimes unorthodox approach, he connects with with his patients, earns their trust, and guides them through the dramatic process of self-discovery and healing.

Among the stories in this intimate, inspiring collection are an articulate teenage boy who thought of himself as "the most disgusting person in the world"-and had the filth, body odor, and dark secret to match; a 70-year-old woman who compulsively washed her hands and everything else in sight; a 29-year-old marketing executive who couldn't stop a tide of disturbing and terrifying thoughts, and others.

A book about the soul and the heart as much as the mind and "the couch," this is a deeply human, empowering, and hopeful book for our disconnected, troubled times.
