"The Fear of Doing Nothing by Valerie Hazanov … a deeply moving recounting of a young therapist’s days as a psychological intern in clinics in New York City. A good read for anyone interested in the human process of living a life in its many forms. In the first chapter, I found myself personally and totally engaged by the author’s vulnerability and presence to the story he was telling and to me, the reader. He told a number of poignant stories of people he saw during his couple of years of internship. He told those stories with passion and empathy, but then he shared his reflections about his own barriers and judgments, his impatience at times, his wonderings about best answers and forms of treatment. In the end, I am left with a sense of intimacy and of increased compassion".
