Priscilla Griffin had been a psychotherapist for more than 25 years when a woman entered her office seeking treatment to cope with her husband's death. Over time, Griffin uncovered that Francine was actively suicidal, coping with extreme depression, and struggling with multiple personalities, a secret she didn't want anyone to know.
Griffin’s memoir “Lifting the Veil,” is a candid look at Francine’s deepest, darkest thoughts and feelings, and how her multiple personalities clashed and ruled her world. The book also offers an intimate look at Griffin’s personal journey, as her work with Francine forced her to question her fundamental personal and professional beliefs.
“Although I was the therapist and Francine was the client, I learned as much from her as she learned from me,” Griffin said. “My psychotherapy experience with Francine, and my own spiritual awakening, changed my views profoundly.”
Before treating Francine, Griffin practiced traditional psychotherapy and was a devout Roman Catholic. While working with Francine, Griffin found hypnosis and past life regression allowed her to reach a deeper level of Francine’s consciousness, where true change could happen. Fostering this mind-body-soul connection became integral in Francine's treatment, and ultimately in Griffin's future professional practice and religious beliefs.
"The book will help people understand life and their true selves on a deeper level," Griffin said. "Francine taught me that there's a deeper consciousness in all of us; a place where the dark and the light battle for our souls."
“Once we can tap into that area, we can understand our lives more clearly and make more profound decisions.”
