Hello, and welcome to my psychotherapy practice.
You might be looking for some relief from grief, panic, or sadness, and ready to feel better-- enjoying more depth, meaning, satisfaction, or joy in your life.
Maybe you're concerned because your child, teen, or family is having a tough time.
Or it's a tangle of all of it, and you're not sure which end to begin from.
Please read on to learn about me and my practice, and contact me for more information.
--Mary Oliver, 1992
You do not have to be good.
You do not have to walk on your knees
for a hundred miles through the desert repenting.
You only have to let the soft animal of your body love what it loves.
Tell me about despair, yours, and I will tell you mine.
Meanwhile the world goes on.
Meanwhile the sun and the clear pebbles of the rain
are moving across the landscapes,
over the prairies and the deep trees,
the mountains and the rivers.
Meanwhile the wild geese, high in the clean blue air,
are heading home again.
Whoever you are, no matter how lonely,
the world offers itself to your imagination,
calls to you like the wild geese, harsh and exciting —
over and over announcing your place
in the family of things.
