Where are you at with your experience of yourself, of the world, your partner, your child? What speaks to you? What may be screaming at you? Or what may you be screaming at others? What do you need? What is precious to you? What is old and outdated? What is asking to be born?
This list is circulating around social media. I like it. Of all the things we can say to our child/children in a day, using a few of those can go a long way to make our parent-child bond strong, and encourage our little ones, and not so little, to shine, authentically. But parents, don't stop at your children!! This list is also full of connection-making, validating statements for your romantic partner or spouse.
When thinking about my "first" post on this new version of my practice website, what keeps coming to mind and heart is my fascination with OCD, the wonders of Exposure Therapy, and lately, my experience of seeing clients outside of the office, in the big world "out there". So, this is a place holder for when I can sit down for a chunk of time, and get into these topics. For now, it's on to doing therapy! Check back.
