Burbank, CA (PRWEB) March 06, 2014
As a professional therapist with 25 years of experience, Dr. Nicki J. Monti observed that people tended to hide behind self-protective psychological defenses which hold them back from the lives they were meant to live. With her book, “Stuck in the Story No More: Breaking Down the Defenses,” Dr. Nicki helps readers identify, understand and address the defenses that resonate with them and, ultimately, guides them to a more productive, enjoyable and fulfilled life.
“Stuck in the Story No More” is based on Dr. Nicki’s foundational book of the same name and its companion workbook. This course offers a unique, breakthrough examination of the devastating impact that unconscious psychological defenses can have on individuals—and how the crippling patterns of those defenses can be identified and broken. At the core of Dr. Nicki’s work is her genuine desire to make a difference and to help people improve their lives.
“It is a universal desire for all humans to feel at peace within their hearts and minds,” says Dr. Nicki. “This book tackles the mystery that we all feel inside as to how we can manifest the best person we can be.”
Dr. Nicki is well-known for her no-nonsense approach, combined with her extraordinary compassion and good humor, in addressing different problems and issues and these remarkable qualities shine through in this practical handbook.
A blueprint for building a life that is free and full, “Stuck in the Story No More” features Dr. Nicki’s unique voice, her hard won wisdom and insights that are both high-minded and intensely practical.
