Dr. Marilyn Sorensen, Selected as “Top Author of the Year” by the International Association of Top Professionals (IAOTP)!

EUGENE, OR – 11/8/2016 (PRESS RELEASE JET) — Dr. Marilyn Sorensen, Published Author, Mentor, Counselor has been named “Top Author of the Year” for 2016-2017 by the International Association of Top Professionals (IAOTP)! 

While inclusion with the International Association of Top Professionals is an honor in itself, only a few members in each discipline are chosen for this distinction. These special honorees are distinguished based on their professional accomplishments, academic achievements, leadership abilities, longevity in the field, other affiliations and contributions to their communities.  All honorees are invited to attend the IAOTP’s annual award gala at the end of this year for a night to honor their achievements.

With over 38 years of professional experience studying low self esteem, Dr. Sorensen has certainly proved herself as an accomplished professional and expert in the field.  She has published 5 books, starting with her first book published in 1998, Breaking the Chain of Low Self-Esteem, which caught fire and has sold in over 30 countries.  It has been considered by many who have read it as the “Best Book” ever written on the subject.  Publishers in Italy, Japan, Greece and Korea quickly purchased the rights to translate Breaking the Chain of Low Self-Esteem into their own languages and Wolf Publishing Company has also published the book in Spanish. She has developed a recovery program for low self-esteem that continues to spread throughout the world and be adopted by therapists globally.  She has travelled to over 60 major cities in the US and Newfoundland, Canada to present workshops to other mental health professionals and has been invited to speak.

It started in 1990 when Marilyn became a Clinical Psychologist.  After receiving her PhD in Clinical & Counseling Psychology from Western Conservative Baptist Seminary, she started a counseling center in Portland, OR, that grew to be the largest private counseling center at the time; the Montavilla Family Counseling Center.  In 1995 she closed down the center and decided to disassociate herself from insurance membership.  At that point, she saw the growing epidemic that the majority of people suffer from low self esteem, and she decided to open The Self-Esteem Institute.  She remained licensed up until May of 2014 after turning 71 years old, and still continues to work with her clients all over the world thru Skype.  She is currently in the process of writing a DO IT YOURSELF SELF-ESTEEM RECOVERY PROGRAM and her life story, both of which will be available by the holidays.

Dr. Sorensen has been recognized worldwide for her achievements and has received numerous awards.  Before she received her doctorate, Marilyn was honored by being selected as one of the “Outstanding Young Women of America” in 1997.  She was also selected to be included in both the 1996 and 1997 Editions of Who’s Who, the Executive and Professional Registry,  and as an Honored Professional in the US Nationwide Register of Who’s Who in 2000.  In 2014, Dr. Sorensen was selected to be featured as Outstanding Professional of the Year by Bristol Who’s Who for her perseverance of excellence in the industry.  She has been interviewed on many radio programs and has appeared on television in Newfoundland, California, Oregon, Las Vegas, and on OPB, and has been quoted in over 125 major newspapers, magazines and websites which include: Newspapers–The Boston Globe, The Chicago Tribune, The Baltimore Sun, The New York Daily News, The Washington Post, Newsday (NY), The Bronx Beat (NY), The Tennessean, The Dallas Morning News, The Arizona Republic, The Toronto Star (Canada), The Hamilton Spectator (Canada), The Advocate (CT), The Buffalo News (NY), The San Antonio Express, The New Times (CA), The Newark Star-Ledger, The News Journal (DE), The Connecticut Post, The News Press (FL), The Ashville Citizen Times (NC), The Columbia Missourian, The Daily Times (Ottawa, IL), The Orlando Sentinel (FL), The Village Voice (NYC), The Seattle Times.

At her graduation from Western Conservative Baptist Seminary, Dr. Sorensen was given a standing ovation by the student body, faculty, and those in attendance, and it was the only time that has ever happened in the history of the school.

Looking back Dr. Sorensen attributes her success to her perseverance and passion for her work and for her patients.  The most rewarding part of her job is that she still gets emails and letters from people she worked with thanking her for guiding them to new realizations, better choices and more contentment with themselves.  Dr. Sorensen says for the future she hopes to continue working with people and to continue to make a difference in people’s lives.
