Recommended Books

Atomic Habits by James Clear- Highly Recommended for ideas on setting up better habits to build better routines

Tiny Habits by BJ Fogg, PhD- Another favorite for helping build routines into your day to day life.

Stop Walking on Eggshells by Paul T. Mason and Randi Kreger- A great book if you or someone you love is living with Borderline Personality Disorder or those traits.

Faster Than Normal by Peter Shankman- I really enjoyed this book for more than just the ADHD tips but for getting motivated and staying productive overall.

The Bullet Journal Method by Ryder Carroll- I recommend trying bullet journaling to most of my clients at some point as a way not to just track their day but also mental health symptoms, habits they want to improve, and much more. It’s a favorite of mine.

The Year of Less by Cait Flanders- I really like the idea of minimalism and this book is about someone living it for an entire year and the ups and downs that comes with it.

Digital Minimalism by Cal Newport- I feel digital minimalism and taking “digital detox” breaks can be essential to mental health, especially in a world of overwhelming social media.
