From Miracles by Walt Whitman
To me, every hour of the light and dark is a miracle,
Every cubic inch of space is a miracle,
Every square yard of the surface of the earth is spread with the same,
Every foot of the interior swarms with the same;
Every spear of grass--the frames, limbs, organs, of men and women,
and all that concerns them,
All these to me are unspeakably perfect miracles.
This fragment of Whitman's poem conveys my orientation to the work of therapy. I am committed to a life that feels to you...at least in some moments...miraculous!
My aim is a collaborative relationship with you that is informed by evidence-based treatment. It lasts as long as it takes to achieve your goal. That might be...finding "the one" and falling in love or leaving a painful, unfulfilling relationship, deciding to give birth to a child, or taking up a new, deeply authentic career path, starting a company based on a great idea you have, or throwing in the towel and traveling the world...whatever feels most right to you after you've done the work of getting in touch with your deepest values.
Anything that gets in the way of your goal - whether it's depression, anxiety, addiction, symptoms of OCD, PTSD, etc., or just fundamental difficulty with communication in relationships - these can be addressed to alleviate the barriers to greater freedom and happiness. Acceptance and commitment are fundamental to achieving these.
