Shout out to therapist

Not up to a full blog entry, but really felt the need to say how blessed I am to have such an excellent therapist. She continues to go above and beyond what she has to for me while at the same time maintaining such good boundaries that our issues don't become her issues so much that she gets pulled down with us. She's seen us through our worst periods and our best and put up with a lot of crap from us b/c of being burned by previous therapists and a HUGE lack of real trust in anyone's dependability/reliability. She is undertaking current tasks with me and we talk about ways to handle upcoming tasks. 3 1/2 years into our working relationship and she seems no less committed than that first day when I asked her if she thought she could handle us and help us. Actually, I believe these days she's even more committed to seeing us through whatever this road we're on brings. At the beginning, I thought she was too naive to know better. Now I realize she is just that awesome, and I am so happy to say she proved me (all of us) wrong! Even in all the lonliness and depression we've been dealing with the past couple of weeks, she has been a constant. It's amazing how much a reminder from her that she's only a phone call or e-mail away, relieves our anxiety and makes us feel less alone.

We are so blessed!!!

  1. I could have written this post. There really are good, dependable, trustable, knowledgable, reliable therapists out there. For all the people who haven't found them yet, or haven't allowed themselves to trust, yet, this kind of reminder is hope.
