What People are Saying About This

Sallie Foley

"This book will give you what other books don't—the understanding of why, despite going to therapists or reading other books, you haven't been able to get out of the 'same old loop' with your partner. I use it in my own work with couples and it is required reading in my sex therapy graduate courses."

Pat Love

"A powerful must-read based on years of research, clinical experience, and riches of the heart, this is a comprehensive work you'll refer to again and again. Coming Home to Passion gives you compassion and competence to manage the most difficult of life's challenges."

Bessel van der Kolk

"I highly recommend this as an insightful and incisive book that describes trauma and its consequences in new and original ways."
