Does life imitate art or does art imitate life? You decide.   

Sometimes poetry and prose put what we feel into words. Suddenly emotion without definition finds itself on a page. Each book was written to draw attention to the importance of mental health care, raise awareness, call us all to greater compassion for ourselves and others, and a call to end the stigma.

Each of Dr. G's books are for anyone struggling with their mental health or for those who love someone who struggling with mental illness that they'd like to better understand.

Whisper Screaming in the Middle of a Crowded Room

G.G Knoth (also known as Dr. G) released her third poetry collection as a small sampling of her most popular poems, some reworked and new. Also on the top 100 bestselling books on Amazon, this book explores the human condition good and bad.

“I don’t have the appropriate words to express how much this collection of poetry speaks to me. I’m not exaggerating when I say, that no piece of writing has ever made such an immediate and profound impression on me. This is a must read.”

“Somehow, G.G. has managed to take all of my feelings, the light and the dark, and put them into words that make me feel understood, supported, and frankly, that I'm not alone.”

    “Dr. Gianina is incredibly relatable, nonjudgmental, understanding, intuitive, supportive, smart, and kind. After seeing many counselors throughout my life and not finding the help and guidance that I was seeking, I finally found Dr. G. She has helped me in more ways than imaginable and I am so thankful for her. I am lucky to have her in my life and would recommend her to my closest family and friends.”
