  • …”I recall, I really don’t know life at all” Some mornings when I go for my walk its not quire daylight. There is just enough light to see where I’m going in the early morning fog, or rising sun. Although I’m on a familiar path there are times something up ahead looks eerily different and alarming.

  • Passion is not a quality that some people are born with but not others.  To be passionate is as natural as breathing, as being alive, the source of who you are.  And Yet...when was the last time you let that part of you out to play.  Watch a child play and you see passion in action.  They know the secret of living each moment with attention and wonder.   As adults we tend to experience a guarded participation in our feelings that leaves us lukewarm toward much of our world.  If you have turned into a bored and passionless grown up, it may be time to let the child your once were be your teac

  • In any given year more than 17 million Americans suffer from some type of depressive illness.  Many symptoms are common to different kinds of depression and are present with different levels of intensity.  It is important as mental health professionals we understand the origin and meaning of the person’s depression, and not label many states and experiences under a generic label.
