Recommended Reading

I want to share my collection of books with you. I have gathered these over the years in both my personal and professional life. I have included books that clients have recommended and shared with me over the years as well. I guess you could say this recommended reading section is a collective effort between myself and clients I have supported! I hope you find some of these readings useful in your own journey. Happy Reading!
