About the Book

Jess Kolbe, an experienced therapist, takes on the medical and pharmaceutical philosophy of prescribing pills and labeling people with a fierce compassion for trauma survivors.

She calls herself the naughty therapist because she proposes that people suffering from posttraumatic stress disorder and other forms of trauma should search outside the confines of the profession to solve their problems.

Without rejecting either therapy or medication, she argues that people don’t heal solely from professional interventions; they need much more than a pill or sitting down in a chair listening to a therapist’s soft voice.

Weaving in details from her own life and examples from therapy sessions, she reveals positive steps that you can take to regain control of your life or help a loved one regain control of theirs—toppling myths about PTSD, depression, and other conditions in the process.

Spark an honest conversation with yourself and others, and get practical help in recognizing and working through trauma with incredible insights from The Naughty Therapist.
