A Practical Guide for Saying Yes to Life’s Joy

“Move from the bondages and safety of the dark and walk in the light. Learn strategies for moving from anxiety and anger to forgiveness and wellness. What delightful tools this book has to offer!” —Dr. Lori A. Russell-Chapin, Ph.D., LCPC, ACS, CCMHC, Co-Director for the Center of Collaborative Brain Research

Nature and nurture work together to create who we are – and we have the ability to develop the best life possible with what we’ve been given. In Happiness Calling, Victoria Mitchell helps you identify the roadblocks that hold you back, and ask why they have such power. In doing so you honor their function, allowing yourself time to grieve, then move on. 

Mitchell illustrates how the practices of self-care and mindfulness will open the doors to change. As she has for hundreds of clients throughout her career, Mitchell helps you assemble a toolbox to manage challenges, maintain peace in stressful times, and adapt to change.

This is a book of gut, grit, and wisdom gained through real-life experience from decades of psychotherapy practice. Happiness Calling is learning and self-discovery nestled in a therapist’s reflections on a career she loved. It will furnish wisdom and guidance for your own unique and fulfilling journey!
