Great book cover designer, speedy tweaks to the design to arrive at what we wanted quickly. Great job!

I could not be more satisfied with her work and cooperation. From the first sketch to the completed painting, her work progressed exactly as I ask and beautifully. A great experience. One I would repeat should I write a second book, which is, indeed, possible.
A highly-talented graphic designer, with a keen eye for detail. Lila works promptly and with great skill. We would highly recommend her services and look forward to working with her in the future.

Superb. Very happy. Thank you.
I had a wonderful experience collaborating with mslmisko on my book cover. He really paid attention to every detail of my brief, and was so patient with me throughout the whole process. Every time I suggested a change to the design, he paid thorough attention to the notes I sent him and showed me exactly what I requested, often sending me multiple iterations so I had many options to choose from. He was incredibly responsive, super respectful, and showed such dedication to making sure the end result was nothing short of amazing. I look forward to working with him again.
Once again CanDesigner knocked it out of the park.... a grand slam. Great talent, great speed, great customer service!

I give you creative freedom with the cover design. I do have an idea but this is only a suggestion. I have given you some pictures and these are not to be used, just a guide. If stock pictures are used, it is best if they are free are very cheap as I would prefer not to pay royalties.
My idea is for a plain cover with a silhouette of a therapist and client similar to picture 1 but in more comfortable chairs as in picture 2. I do NOT want a couch in the silhouette. I like the shape of the chair in picture 3. Maybe include a standard lamp or clock?
I am interested in how you can use color with this cover, though I really want a clean looking cover.
These are just my suggestions but I am very open to all ideas- surprise me.
The AAE logos are for use on the back cover and the spine.
The back cover will contain the blurb as described above and the photo of the author.
The back cover and the spine can bleed over the design from the front to give a continuous feel.
I have included some book covers that I quite like but these are just ideas.
