“Just because you can’t walk, it does not mean you can’t use your arms and play the violin. You know, we have to – as I always say – separate our abilities from our disabilities.”
– Itzhak Perlman
We all have parts of ourselves that we don’t always like. Psychotherapy can provide the safety that enables people to accept their vulnerability and develop compassion for these wounds and scars that they had dismissed. These truths inform my work and I am committed to them. When we honor how we managed to survive our own life’s struggles we can be more fully open to others and to life itself.
I think that all effective psychotherapy involves the hypnotic process- a special relationship between two people.
Deep change can occur only when people allow themselves to experience the vulnerability that they learn to hide in childhood.
“In each of us lies sleeping beauty, wasted potential, dying dreams. We sleep and live in dormant twilight, never knowing what it means to live, to love the bits of heaven that we can unearth deep in our hearts; not recognizing that our salvation is ever-present in those parts that we have disowned, denied, forgotten. The thorns of fear thwart faint attempt. The prince is courage, the kiss believing and then with these our life begins.”
– Kay Thompson’s Student
