Praise from a client

"I know these are just words on a page from someone you probably will never meet.  But, I hope to tell you from my heart how Dr. Sorensen has made a difference in my life.  I struggled mightily, for a long time, before meeting Dr. Sorensen.  Before working with her my anxieties and self-doubt crippled me.  Adult life, career and a relationship, seemed impossible.  Working with her, week after week (sometimes day after day), helped free me from the intensity of my thoughts and feelings. 
     She gave me tools that no therapist had given me before. Email after email we worked on correcting my thoughts; I read her emails constantly as I uprooted my hard-wired beliefs.  I don't know where I would be in my career, or in my relationship (now married), without her.  I was even able to do things because of  my work with her that were so far out there that I wouldn't even day dream about doing them. 
     Now, years later, looking back on my work with her I grow in my gratitude; not just for the things I now have in my life.  But, for the values that she taught me that I think make me a kinder, stronger, and more respectful human being
     Lastly, thank you Dr. Sorensen for pouring your life in your work.  Your words to me were and continue to be powerful and beautiful; filled with perspective and insight that have made a profound difference in my life."
               Sincerely, Tony

Recovery Program in Action

Dr. M:

October 1st I had a session with a client that had the most precise suicide plan I had ever heard in 22 years of counseling. I, with some other professionals, took the steps to try to make sure that didn't happen.

However, as I met with him today, seeing such incredible change that I know, with reasonable surety, that the suicide will not occur and that his life track is going so much better, I had to thank you for your book.

Breaking the Chain..., along with your workbook, has absolutely turned this guy around. Now, I had him as a client before, around some business coaching, so I am not running off just a six week data base. Your writings and insights have impacted him to the point that his life is no longer in jeopardy.

Just thought I would let you know of the impact you make.

A Client who wants others to know about this “Secret to Life”

Dr. Sorensen,

I came across your website while researching to help my young daughter with Social Anxiety. As I was reading your website, I was answering yes and nodding my head connecting with everything on the website. I immediately bought the digital downloads for "Building Healthy Self Esteem in Children" and "Breaking The Chain". I'm still reading the latter and felt compelled to email you now instead of waiting till I finished. Reading your book is like finding the SECRET TO LIFE. As you already have guessed, I have LSE and didn't understand how and why people behaved a certain way. I'm hopeful for myself and more importantly for my daughter.

Unfortunately, my daughters problems are the sum of her father’s and my LSE. I was extremely worried about how to help her since she didn't want to go see a psychologist, and the school counselor has been a disappointment. With your books, my helplessness has given way to new hope. I have the knowledge now to help my daughter little by little each passing day. I feel so blessed I discovered your website at the right time in my daughter's life. She is old enough to understand what I'm teaching and yet young enough so there is plenty of time to change her harmful inner voice. As for me, I wished I had discovered all this wisdom in my early twenties.

THANK YOU so much for you work. I don't know if you realize how important you are to people like myself. I knew nearly everything you said about LSE, but was absolutely clueless as to the mindset of high esteem people. This is the nugget of gold that all LSE need to improve ourselves. I've been reading self help books all my life. I can not stress enough how important your work is.

THANK YOU again from the bottom of my heart, and on behalf of my daughter. A week before finding your website; I hit a low, totally frustrated not having the answers to help my daughter. She was in a lot of emotional pain. Now I have hope she'll come out of her shell and blossom one day. When that day comes, I'll be reminded of this crucial turning point.
