I am Dr. Edith Eva Eger. Since my childhood days in Hungary, friends and family have called me Edie. We lived a ‘normal life’, a happy life, uneventful in its quiet bliss. Then it was slowly, yet suddenly, all taken away, altering the course of my life forever.

I have helped countless others lead full lives by moving beyond their problems –no matter how insurmountable they believed them to be.

Though I could have remained a permanent victim –scarred  by what was beyond my control– I made the choice to heal. Early on, I realized that true freedom can only be found by forgiving, letting go, and moving on. So I turned my life around and vigorously pursued a career in psychology. Combining my formal education and my own life challenges, I have helped countless others lead full lives by moving beyond their problems –no matter how insurmountable they believed them to be.  This is my life’s mission and I will forever strive to help people make the choice to heal and thrive. That’s a promise!
