CFS OCD Lending Library

There are so many great books out there for people who suffer from OCD and anxiety.  I often recommend to clients that they read sections of various books to help them in their work between sessions.  To make it easy for my clients to get started reading right away, I offer a lending library of books that I often recommend.  Clients can check out books for a week at a time, and if they like them, they can buy them from the library at any time.  I am always adding books to the library, and our current selection of books includes the following:
