Welcome to my website. My name is Dr. Bonnie Bull. I was born in San Francisco, and, along with my sister, lived my childhood in the Marin County, California area. I am an experimental psychologist, author, and jazz singer. I was in private practice in the Pasadena, California for over 30 years, specializing in anger management, depression, and anxiety. I have helped many people deal better with these issues, and learn to live much more productive and happier lives. I have a deep love of people and mixing with them.
My main point for writing my book, The Road Most Traveled, My Journey with People of the Lie, and my album, Bad Girl, are to help people become more giving, loving, kinder persons who dedicate their lives to serving others. Showing love towards your fellow man will lessen any anger, anxiety, and depression that you feel. I have long been a supporter of people's right to choose on how they wish to live their lives, be it straight, gay, lesbian, whatever. As the late Rodney King said: "Can't we all just get along?" Loving is living!
I wrote The Road Most Traveled - My Journey with People of the Lie because of all the shocking and powerfully tragic changes I have seen in this culture on my journey. The blatant discrimination I experienced early on is minor in comparison to the trends I see today.
A great deal of honor, the tenderness and humanity I witnessed throughout my life starting with my profound encounters with Dr. Erich Fromm (The Art of Loving, Escape from Freedom), Dr. Eugene Burdick (author of The Ugly American, Fail-Safe, and The Ninth Wave), and Dr. William Glasser (Reality Therapy), seems to have been lost. Using the narrative of my deeply personal, painful and costly life experiences I have written a book that hopefully and vividly demonstrates the path we are on and offers a profound analysis and insight into these trends. My dream is that the book will touch deeply some fellow travelers. I love the quote by the late President, George H.W. Bush,: "A kinder, gentler nation"; he has always touched me. He dedicated his life to the service of others, which is what I believe we all need to do.
One of my other heroes is Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. His quote: “Love is the only way” has always touch me, and also reflects how I believe we all need to live our lives.
When I was a psychology student, I, along with other selected students, was honored to meet in a private class with the social psychologist, psychoanalyst, Erich Fromm. It is an experience I will never forget. I have read all Dr. Fromm's books. One of my favorites was, The Art of Loving. I have always been touched by the quote from the book, "Love is the only sane and satisfactory answer to the problem of human existence."
