“Aphrodite Emerges is an inspiring story of hope and transformation in one woman's life. The book shares all of the work that Susie, a psychotherapist for over thirty years, did to overcome her darkest struggle. From battling her inner demons as her life makes a crash landing in a horrific divorce, Herrick shares all of the lessons she learned along the way to rediscover her own feminine power. Herrick taps into psychological and historical research, embraces the wisdom of Tibet, and listens to the stories of those around her, learning, especially, to listen to herself. From the lowest point of nearly dying in a Buddhist monastery in Nepal, Herrick takes the reader into the heart of her dark night, confronts her ego, and comes face to face with her own internal misogynist. Skilled as a therapist, she is able to break this process down to its simplest forms and profoundly change her life. This inner transformation shifts how she sees the world around her, eventually touching her father and breaking down the barriers within their relationship.”
