On Samantha's Bookshelf-
- You are a Badass by Jen Sincero- This book is my most favorite book to recommend to my clients. It is full of real-life scenarios and of course, just enough cursing to make it as real as it gets!
- The Gifts of Imperfection by Brene Brown Ph.D.,L.M.S.W.- This one really speaks to the importance of owning yourself, being authentic in the world and gives some great guidelines on how to live your life through embracing your imperfections.
- Attached by Amir Levine, M.D., and Rachel Heller, M.A.- This is a great book for anyone who is struggling to understand their relationships. It speaks to three different styles of attachment (important information for those who want to deepen their relationship and understand how they interact with their significant other) and gives great insight into how to adjust yourself within the context of intimate relationships. Great for those out in the dating world!
- The Five Love Languages by Gary Chapman- There is a whole series of these books (for kids, teens, etc) that talk about how to discover your love language, what your love language means and how to help yourself and your loved one give and receive love effectively. You can take the Love Language Test HERE and pick up the book to learn more!
