“Mixed Emotions is a valuable tool for everyone. Your feelings are your guide to an authentic and healthy life. If I could, I would give every child a set as a gift because it is in childhood that we are taught how to think and, in the process, forget how to feel. Mixed Emotions can be literally life saving.”

“Mixed Emotions is an outstanding tool that helps bereaved adults and teenagers articulate thoughts and feelings that would otherwise be hard for them to describe. The visual images on the cards evoke an emotional state that helps people more deeply express their grief. The cards provide a safe way to identify and verbalize emotions that are often disturbing or confusing, so they can then be processed.”
