For Dr. Von Glahn, Jessica’s therapy was the most challenging, the most profound, and ultimately the most personally satisfying experience he has encountered in forty-five years of practice. If someone had explained to him ahead of time the actual nature of Jessica’s problem, he would not have believed that it was possible for a human being to have such a psychological condition.
A 100% true psychological case study, Jessica: The autobiography of an infant, is a pioneering adventure into unexplored psychological territory. As Jessica grew up, she became increasingly fearful that something had gone dreadfully wrong when she had been “made-up. That was the only explanation she could think of for why she felt that the needing, wanting part of her – the “I” part of her psychological make-up – was dangerous and that she had to stay away from it. In her therapy as an adult, she discovered that her inexplicable fear of spontaneously being her natural Self was from fateful events she had experienced during the earliest days of her life.

Jeffrey Von Glahn, Ph.D., has been a psychotherapist for 45 years, and counting. That experience has been, and continues to be, more exciting and fulfilling than he had ever imagined. Whether it’s the first session with a new client or the hundredth one with the same client, this intimate way of engaging with another person continues to have the same mesmeric appeal for him it has always had. On occasion, he has been known to suddenly exclaim, “If I believed in reincarnation – which I don’t – but if I did my fondest wish would be to come back as a therapist.”
