Latest Media Review:
Over the past 12 years in hosting and interviewing hundreds of guests on several different talk shows, Shari Botwin LCSW Therapist, Speaker and Author came on my radio show, "The Way Home with Laura Smith" yesterday and I couldn't have been more impressed or pleased with introducing her to my audience as she spoke so eloquently and compassionately about her new book, "Thriving After Trauma---Stories of Living and Healing". Shari's grace in sharing her own story of thriving after trauma gave listeners the ability to trust her research and methods of healing and recovery in addition to her decades of work with her clients. I felt that Shari's warm and understanding delivery of often difficult topics was equal to her expertise in leading people beyond their difficulties into a life of meaning and joy. Some guests throughout the years have stood out as being exceptional and Shari Botwin is definitely one of them. I highly recommend having Shari help inform your audience as soon as you can. Thriving After Trauma is a phenomenal resource and guide to a better life, by a trusted voice
