Sharon Martin’s new e-book– Navigating the Codependency Maze: A Path to Freedom and Healthy Love  is a wonderful tool for anyone who struggles with wanting healthy relationships but doesn’t know how to begin that journey, either on their own or with a trusted therapist or coach.  Sharon’s language is kind, non-judgmental, yet never shies away from being straightforward. This book takes the reader from an understanding of the concept of what is co-dependency through chapters that carefully lay out steps to begin the healing journey, to resources and worksheets that will support the work.  If you are looking for healthy relationships with others and most importantly yourself, this is a wonderful place to start.

If you’re someone who worries about how people will react when you express your opinion or say no to a request, I highly recommend this workbook from Sharon Martin, LCSW! Sharon clearly explains setting boundaries and describes the factors that get in the way of being comfortable with speaking our truth. This workbook will help you identify what’s getting in the way and make changes so you can stop worrying about what other people think and speak your mind.”
