With the coming of the new year, I have spent a fair amount of time reflecting about my practice as a new decade begins.

I realize that for most, the holiday season started at Thanksgiving and will now stretch into this New Year's revelry.  I personally see Thanksgiving as it's own event, and when December actually arrives does the Holiday season begin for me. So I resist decorating the...

This is my own quick essay, so it's just my thoughts about therapy after having been in it from time to time, and what it means to do it as a professional for the past decade. I could back it up with citations for the women and men that I have read and have learned fro...
