With this new insight into Dr. Birken's perceptions, experience, and ability to synthesize his years of clinical practice into poignant stories, I feel safe for the first time in years that I am in capable hands. I am impressed by his depth and breath of knowledge. He seems to the real deal: authentic, well-rounded, and just downright nice.
I know I will carry the memories of "Amy", "Betty Joe "and "Dr. Raymond", as well as the other intriguing characters, close to my heart for years to come. I can't wait to gift this to other women in my life!
