I often recommend bite size pieces of homework to maximize therapeutic process and get more out of investment you’re making in yourself. Often as a client you will hear me reference resources such as books, podcast you tube links, apps for your phone or blogs/websites to follow up with after our sessions. I have compiled comprehensive curated list of resources by topic to support your healing and recovery.
