I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this new book written by my friend and fellow therapist, Julie de Azevedo Hanks -  The Burnout Cure: An Emotional Survival Guide for Overwhelmed Women! What a great title!

This book is a great complement to the work I do with people who are struggling to develop healthy emotional boundaries. It is going to be very helpful for women everywhere! So glad this book is available!
