Peter Marino, Therapist

Everyone knows that in a crisis, a pamphlet can help.

My most recent therapy practice (Trickle Down Counseling) is temporarily not accepting new clients or serving established clients. Having lost the lease on my office space in addition to suffering foreclosure on my storage unit, I find myself with an abundance of the following short publications that I have authored based on important topics my clients have brought to our sessions over the years. Gender-neutral pronouns are used in titles for inclusion.

For a small fee of $5 each (which includes postage and handling), I can arrange for them to be mailed directly to you. Please indicate by number which pamphlet(s) you would like. Do not request downloads as they will not reduce the paper burden I am experiencing.

I have arranged the pamphlets by most popular category:
