A note from your (human) therapist

It turns out that your therapist has a few--*gasp*--expectations! Deep breaths, everyone. Peel yourself off the floor if you fainted. I can wait... "Expectations" is practically a dirty word, isn't it? Therapists aren't supposed to have them. We're supposed to be unconditionally supportive, allowing you to be as you are in any given moment. Yes... and I... Continue Reading →


apparently I’m a therapist

I stumbled upon some new (to me) remote job search sites. So I started looking. I think it would be nice to have another revenue stream that doesn't revolve around getting more therapy clients.

I started this blog to motivate myself to write about the things that inspire me. I haven’t posted since October. I assure you this does not mean I have lacked inspiration or that the world has ceased to entertain and enlighten me. It means creating the blog as a motivational tool has not been entirely...

Faith is taken for granted. It is taken for granted that someone who grows up in a particular religious context will be religious or faithful. That faith is part of your heritage. No. Religion and its accoutrements are part of your heritage. What you feel inside, how you internalize your family’s religious traditions is a... Continue Reading →
