“Vulnerability in this process is going to be the source of your power because there is no controlling it.” (17:58)

“There was a before and after in my clinical practice, where I now am able to taper individuals in the space of months what took years before.” (25:09)

“If that's all it takes, what parent wouldn't want to try that, especially in today's age where it is so easy?” (32:42)
