About Bonding Time and Holly Brown, MFT
Bonding Time is a blog that centers around the importance of attachment and emotional bonds, and how we struggle to stay connected to our partners, our children, and ourselves. It also addresses current events and social issues, because in order to raise healthy children, you need to think deeply about what’s going on in the world around us (and them.)
Holly Brown, MFT is a licensed marriage and family therapist practicing in Alameda, in the San Francisco Bay Area. She treats a host of mental health and relationship issues. Not to play favorites, but she particularly loves couples work, and is a practitioner of emotionally-focused therapy (EFT.) For more about her practice, please visit her here.
She’s also a novelist with HarperCollins/Morrow. International best-selling author Sophie Hannah has said, “Holly Brown’s novels are irresistibly readable and infused with a profound understanding of human frailty.” DON’T TRY TO FIND ME is a page-turning family drama about a 14-year-old runaway and the parents who’ll do anything to find her, including launching a social media campaign that will expose all their darkest secrets and change their family forever. A NECESSARY END explores the question: How far would you go to get what you wanted? Full of secrets and twists, it’s about a woman determined to have a child, her ambivalent husband, and a pregnant teenager with a secret agenda of her own. Her latest is THIS IS NOT OVER, about two women who become embroiled in an escalating cat-and-mouse after a vacation rental gone wrong.
