Many books claim they can rescue you from confusion, unhappiness and agitation. But Dr. Claudia Luiz says sanity isn’t where you’ve been looking.

"You can’t attain sanity by just trying harder, exercising a positive outlook, letting go, forgiving or meditating. What you need for sanity, when reason fails, are emotional experiences. Not ideas. Experiences."


In Where’s my Sanity? Dr. Luiz delivers a unique and refreshing set of stories about the experiences that have been most effective for her patients.

Here are stories about people suffering with our most common modern-day afflictions — from depression, the effects of womanizing, and having difficult teenagers, to being stuck or agitated — and then what transpires to make things better. By drawing on her more than twenty five years treating people, Psychotherapist Luiz reveals a new method for change and how you too can experience it.

How to Get Better

Claudia Luiz’s book: Where’s My Sanity? Stories that Help, was written to help readers understand how change really happens. Not by pressing a button on ourselves to “move forward” but through emotional experiences that have to power to create change naturally. Each chapter moves the reader forward towards what emotional experiences everybody can search for, and what they can do for you.

All speaking and consulting address the question: Why Can’t We Move Forward? And offer new, innovative ideas and methods to lift the obstacles to self-improvement, growth, improved mental health and deep, lasting change.
