My Skeletons Have Names is an intensely powerful book filled with stories and tools to help us survive and cope with some of the most challenging moments in our lives.
When we experience trauma, loss, grief, and a whole suite of different emotions, the pain can feel like it will last forever. Our emotions and thinking can lead us to damaging behaviors and poor choices that compound our problems. We might even question if we will ever feel "normal", or if we will ever feel real happiness, hope, or joy again.
If you feel like your emotional wounds are preventing you from fully embracing life, this book will help you. Using real life stories and experiences, the author will share how she rediscovered herself to live a life she loves and give you insight to how she did it.

"The book’s invitation to think differently, innovate regularly, and “meet your skeletons” resiliently after encountering stumbling blocks is based on her many decades of experience with dealing with addiction, guilt, and pain—experiences that she says came at a cost. In a frank and conversational tone, she shares descriptions of unbelievable personal hurdles. These anecdotes give credence to the book’s suggestions for unloading the weighty baggage left by unsettling experiences."

"Vulnerability at its finest. Shari is both informative and inspiring. She taught me that, “You accept the love you think you deserve and reject the love that you think you do not deserve. “Extremely insightful."
"What a great read, brave authenticity throughout each page! I am inspired, filled with gratitude and grounded with the power shared with your book."
"What a fascinating and insightful read! This book is a testament to the promise that when traumatic events happen to us and we change our behaviors as a strategy to deal with pain and fear and to protect ourselves there can also be a time when that changes and we have a new path to transformative healing and growth that ripples out to the world and changes things for the better. It takes courage and tenacity and Shari has both in abundant supply. I also celebrate that Shari endorses the idea that not everything happens for a reason and that we can be empowered by our past fears to break through to a new way of being!"
