"I fell in love with it! I would like it to be the gift we give to our day treatment programs throughout the country. We'd like to buy 100 books." Dawn Theodore Clinical Director Eating Disorders Center of CA "Our psychologist loves these. In the past we have provided each ACUTE patient with a blank journal and she would assign them topics based on what was happening during their stay. We'd love to use the Ritteroo Journal instead going forward and will give this journal to every patient who comes to ACUTE Center for Eating Disorders. Thanks so much!" Rachael Harriman ACUTE Program Manager Denver, CO "I received the Ritterroo Journal last week and I can"t thank you enough for that. I have already ordered 2 more for 2 of my clients and have passed on the information to several people. It was beautifully done and will touch many lives." Suzanne Rubinetti, LCSW Summit, NJ "I just got the Ritterroo Journal and it's FAN FLIPPING TASTIC! Your efforts, which I know were extraordinary are clearly reflected in the end product. I want to give one to all my clients!! BRAVO!!" Beth Hartman McGilley, PhD, FAED, CEDS Wichita KS
