Three-Time Bestselling Author
Sex for Grownups: Dr. Dorree Reveals the Truth, Lies and Must-Tries for Great Sex After 50 (HCI Publishers, 2010). Sex for Grownups delves deeply where other books only peek: between the sheets of adults having sex (or wanting to) in their 50s, 60s, 70s and beyond. Learn how to open yourself to new ways of thinking, feeling, and enjoying great sex after 50. More than 80 million American women and men over fifty are facing a number of very common yet rarely talked about challenges in the bedroom—from low libido to unrealistic expectations, from waning hormones to physical limitations, from repressed desires and fantasies to performance anxiety. With humor and judgment-free advice, Dr. Dorree shows women and men how, with a little attitude shift and some adjustments to life's inevitable changes, the best really can be yet to come.
When the Man You Love Is Ill; Doing Your Best for Your Partner without Losing Yourself (Marlowe & Co. /Avalon Publishing 2007. This break-through book is an emotional survival guide with a pragmatic approach, providing timely advice that is candid, compassionate and holistic. The book focuses on the caregiver’s dilemma, how to best care for your partner while also taking care of yourself. Care giving is a challenge, but not one without rewards. For the first time in history, census statistics show that over half of the US population will be over fifty years old. The good news is that we live longer, and the diseases that used to kill, don’t anymore. The truth is that most of us will eventually either need, or be, caregivers.
Getting Sane Without Going Crazy (Xlibris 2000) is a consumer’s guide to psychotherapy. “Most people take greater care looking for a new suit or dress than seeking a therapist. I wanted to do something to change that,” says Dr. Lynn. The book’s purpose is to act as an antidote to the stigma attached to psychotherapy and as a guide through the perplexing labyrinth of psychotherapy schools and other healing modalities.

The Reason I Became A Helping Professional
When I was 7 years old I wanted to be a raindrop. I came from an era where men wanted to be doctors, lawyers and Indian chiefs, and women wanted to be teachers, nurses, and secretaries. However, when I was seven I had just learned about the cycle of water--from sky to river and back again--and I understood that water was eternal and could be used for evil or for good. In class one day, when it was my turn to say what I wanted to be when I grew up, I said I wanted to be a raindrop.
It was clear that I had more depth than I realized at the time and I was fortunate to have a teacher who stopped the class from laughing. She took me seriously and encouraged me to follow my dreams...a path that included traveling the world, learning about different cultures and different people, and finding my niche for helping others lead more fulfilling lives.
I later became a psychologist and I mean it in the original sense of the word. Psyche meaning "soul" and "therapist" meaning "healer of the soul."
I was a pioneer in my field for over 40 years. When I started, there were almost no women (believe it or not) in the psychology field. It occurred to me that most people could live better lives if they understood themselves better and were given additional tools and greater abilites to navigate the sorrows, stumbles, and joys of life.
After traveling around the world and experiencing so many different cultures, there was nothing else that I wanted to do except help people grow, and in-turn, I would grow with them.
The best way to sum up why I decided to become a helping professional is to go back to The King and I, by Richard Rogers & Oscar Hammerstein, when Anna sings:
"When you become a teacher, by your students you'll be taught..."
I first heard Gertrude Lawrence sing these words when I was young. It took me all these years to finally understand what they meant.
