By putting my personal story in the first couple of pages of the book, I was hoping to speak directly to the reader, and somehow say "I’ve been where you are."
Below are a few snippets from the chapter that embody my message, my honesty, and my truth.
More than two million brides
So a few months after our wedding, I founded Emotionally Engaged Counseling for Brides and focused my psychotherapy practice solely on brides-to-be.
I took a chance, starting my practice for brides with this premise:
If I felt that discombobulated during my engagement, some of the 2.3 million American brides might too
Most brides attended my workshops hoping to learn how to eliminate their negative feelings
In reality, emotions work the opposite way.
