Everything you need to know about your cartoon elephants (emotions!) has been condensed into a graphic how-to self-help book. Clinicians are using this book in a variety of settings to help their clients “get it.” The graphic design and artwork is all my own.

If you need a playful, humorous, and light-hearted approach to starting conversations about the more serious and painful things, you need to buy this book. If you have doubts, be sure to check out the reviews of this book on Amazon or check out
