An Introduction

The process of therapy is an odd enterprise in that two strangers come together, and you are to share intimate information with me with little mutual sharing going on. I am always aware of this imbalance in the relationship, but this odd dynamic is what makes therapy work. More specifically, by the conversations being focused on you, you do not have to take care of me; it is my job to take care of you.

Therapy is also a business in that you pay a fee for my services. The money that you provide guarantees my time. With my time comes my long years of experience, my willingness to engage with you at a deep emotional level, my unconditional respect, and my readiness to engage with you in a common effort to resolve your issues.

I share these thoughts with you as an introduction to my blog. I am admittedly ignorant of such social media, but I chose to incorporate this work in my web site in an effort to make myself known to you in terms of how I view the world, elements of my sense of humor (which is an integral part of my personality and my work), and sometimes a discussion/reflection of important issues regarding emotional concerns, relationship difficulties, and other elements of emotional health.

What I will discuss in my blog will usually come from my observations of the world, cartoons that catch my eye, and important words of wisdom provided by various people. I also encourage you, as readers and potential clients, to pose topics as well. I do caution you that I will not give advice because each of you are unique and, unlike other therapists who are willing to give canned answers, I believe that each of you deserve responses that come from knowing you intimately.

All of the above said, I hope that you find the blog informative, sometimes entertaining, and at times meaningful. Enjoy.
