Every day I read and learn things that help my clients and myself. I have done this for as long as I can remember. When I first became a therapist , I used to stay late at my job so I could photocopy information from my supervisors office. This was in the 90's when computers weren't as much of a thing as they are not.
I was always a voracious reader. I am usually reading several books at a time. I collect bits of information, look for themes and patterns, am constantly looking for ways to help my clients think about their lives so they can be free from their suffering.
On these pages, I am just share bits of information that I find cool and interesting that you may or may not find helpful. Some are my thoughts and some are notes on other's thoughts.
