A patient wrote this to me: "You are someone who knows the song in my heart, and could sing it back to me when I had forgotten the words." In my over 27 years of psychotherapy practice, I have learned several things: one is, in meeting with patients, to clear my mind (at least to try hard!) of all the theories and clinical orientations I have absorbed and to allow my emotions, mind, body, and considerable life experience to be present in our interactions.

It feels like nobody really knows how you feel on the inside. In many ways you're successful, accomplished and have your stuff together. But privately you are aware of your personal struggles. It could be any of a number of things: low self worth, lack of confidence, pervasive negative thoughts, explosive anger, isolation, intense anxiety, or deep feelings of sadness or self-hate. You have tried to handle it, control it or change it to no avail. Something has to give; you're tired of the struggle and ready for a change.
