Book Synopsis



NATIONAL BESTSELLER

From licensed therapist and popular Instagram relationship expert Vienna Pharaon (@mindfulmft, +683K followers) comes a profound guide to understanding and overcoming wounds from your Family of Origin--the foundation of how we relate to others, ourselves, and the world around us.

None of us had a perfect childhood; we are all carrying around behaviors that don't serve us--and may in fact be hurting us. But it doesn't have to be that way, says licensed marriage and family therapist Vienna Pharaon. Our past might create our patterns, but we can change those patterns for the better...with the right tools.

In The Origins of You, Pharaon has unlocked a healing process to help us understand our Family of Origin--the family and framework we grew up within--and examine what worked (and didn't) in that system. Unhealed pain (or "wounds") in that Family of Origin will manifest in our adult behaviors in surprising ways, from work challenges to interpersonal struggles. But the good news: armed with the knowledge about our past, we can actually rewire our programming to meaningfully improve our relationships and our lives, right now and in the future.

It doesn't matter whether you've been in therapy for decades, or whether therapy isn't for you. It doesn't matter if you had a great childhood, or a terrible one. You can create change and resolve things from the past that need your attention. Complete with guided introspection, personal experiences, client stories, frameworks for having difficult conversations, and worksheets to complement each chapter, The Origins of You will teach you how to break family patterns and help you liberate the way you live and love.

I love Vienna Pharaon for her thought provoking work into ourselves. Being reflective into our triggers and responses is difficult, yet Vienna helps one to dig deeper into self discovery with greater insight and respond in a way that opens and encourages understanding and dialogue. Doing this builds and strengthens our relationships with others and ourselves! I’ve been following Vienna for several years and immensely respect her and try to incorporate her wisdom. Thank you Vienna for putting together this amazing book! 💜
