Dr. Donna Marks has been a licensed psychotherapist and addictions counselor for over thirty years. She is also a certified gestalt therapist, psychoanalyst, hypnotist, sex therapist, and teaches A Course in Miracles, along with sharing her methods with hundreds of thousands of listeners on podcasts and radio shows.

No matter what someone is addicted to—alcohol, prescription or illegal drugs, smoking, working, gambling, and so forth—loving yourself is the key to recovery. This doesn’t mean the road is easy or a few acts of self-care will do the trick; the journey to true self-love includes delving deep into your past trauma to understand where your addiction began, addressing those fear-based traumas with compassion and forgiveness. Marks believes every addiction is a substitute for love. She will discuss her upcoming book Exit the Maze: One Addiction, One cause, One Solution. where she teaches people how to replace addiction with love, allowing love to guide you through the maze of addiction and back to living your best life. Her most recent book, Exit the Maze: One Addiction, One cause, One Solution.
