About the Book

Affirmations are thinking tools that can enhance our lives if we use them effectively. In fact, every thought we think shapes how we see the world. Often times we want all circumstances to change before we can be happy. This book is meant to support you no matter how you are feeling. We hope after you have taken some time to reflect that even when you are having strong feelings you are still "ok" and loved very much.

About the Author

Zhenique M. Israelian was raised on the north shore of Long Island, New York where she developed a botanical interest by helping her father maintain beautiful home gardens. These gardens, the beaches and sunsets on the The Sound made indelible memories that sparked her curiosity in biology and the arts. She practiced drawing from life, oil painting and clay sculpture with note worthy artist, Joe Mack at Mack Studio in Huntington, New York. Zhenique attended the State University of New York at Plattsburgh, New York where she earned a bachelors in psychology and studied art with distinguished artist, Rick Mikkelson. Zhenique's interest in biology led her to working on a neuroscience project investigating Alzheimer's disease with Dr. Jeanne Ryan, a published researcher in Asperger's syndrome, Adolescent Psychiatry and Mental Health. After living abroad for a few years, Zhenique chose Boston to start her professional life. Her father, whom she admired and loved dearly, worked as a Senior Project Manager for New York City's Health and Hospitals. He died in August of 2001compounding the trauma of the World Trade Center attacks for her. She resolved to help herself and others by earning a Masters in Counseling Psychology at Lesley University in Cambridge, MA. Zhenique is now a trauma specialist maintaining a private clinical practice in Salem and managing a school based health center at the Marshall Middle School in Lynn, MA.
