About the Book
UnTherapy will speak to the heart of anyone who realizes that traditional therapy does not (or never did) help them to evolve. If you feel like therapy has stunted your growth or "working on yourself" has resulted in self-judgment, this book is for you. It is a practical guide that will help you to move beyond blame and shame.

UnTherapy challenges the notion that the suffering of ordinary life necessarily results in emotional crippling. When a person learns how, they can tap into the resilience of their own human spirit and grow through painful times.

UnTherapy offers practical coping skills to handle fears, anxiety, anger, stress, apathy, self-neglect and self-imposed suffering. It will help you to reverse compulsions like overeating, drinking, isolating, overspending, staying too busy, and even “vegging out” too much.

Unlike self-improvement “make it happen” books, UnTherapy proposes that inspiration and productivity emerges not so much from effort as from peace of mind. Self-compassion, self-hypnosis, cognitive behavioral psychology, and meditation for Westerners are the vehicles for transformation.

This is a workbook formatted into short, 2-3 page subsections for easy reference. There are self-reflective exercises to learn how to re-educate your mind, eradicate self-sabotaging patterns, and transform unwanted behaviors. It is not more information. It provokes your own internal wisdom.


We are all neurotic in one way or another. It’s just part of the human condition. UnTherapy teaches us to accept our neurosis with compassion, while not letting it rule our lives.
Enlightened living is not the absence of neurosis but rather the ability to come to peace with your humanness so that your soul can shout “this is who I am!” I encourage you to treat UnTherapy as a meditation. Make yourself a pot of tea.
Curl up in your favorite chair. Read it slowly. There are golden nuggets of wisdom contained within these pages and you don’t want to miss a single one.
