It’s been quite a while since I wrote in this blog. A new year’s resolution for 2011 for me will be to keep more current with this writing. For now, given that it is the end of the year, it seems a good time for reflection. And appreciation.
There is so much to be grateful for. I am thinking of the clients who this year sat with me and engaged in the courageous work of psychotherapy. The process of psychotherapy is often painful and can be long. But it can be deeply rewarding as well. I am thinking of those who confronted old rigid behavioral patterns and negative beliefs about themselves and the world. I am thinking of those who battled destructive habits and belittling critical internal voices. I am thinking of those who worked on improving their relationships, their communication, their commitment to leading a more authentic life. And I am thinking of those who dealt courageously with losses, those current and those in the past.
To all of my clients I am grateful for the courage you have shown and for allowing me to accompany you on these journeys. I look forward to continuing our dialog, or relationship, in 2011.
And to those who may come to my office in the new year, I welcome you in advance. And I look forward to our work together.
To all I wish a very happy and healthy holidays.
