"Conflict, sadness, confusion, anger, grief, worry, shame, fear, phobias, nightmares: They can arise in our lives like scary monsters. Children, adolescents, and adults all experience these feelings as unwanted and unwelcome. What if, instead of pushing these feelings away, we listened to what they have to say to us? This might sound just too, too scary, but that's why I'm here! When an unknown part of ourselves looms like a monster in the closet, we must coax it out with patience and kindness. This is very difficult to do alone (especially for young people!) "
