  • Show at the Beach

    I went for a walk at the beach. I do this often, but it was Thanksgiving Day—that’s partly what made this walk meaningful. What really made it special was that I didn’t just walk, and I didn’t just listen to podcasts (like I usually do). This time, I recorded a podcast. I’ve had my podcast for about six years or so, and I was real […]

  • When You’re Just . . . Stale

    I had a client in my office recently (let’s call him Jared) who didn’t seem sad or depressed. He wasn’t even down. After some pleasantries and him not saying much of substance, this just fell out of my mouth before I had a chance to weigh or filter it. “You seem . . . stale.” He looked up at me trying to figure out what […]

The majority of people who call to set an appointment with a psychotherapist have no idea who they’re calling.  Sure, they’ve looked at a profile on an online therapy directory, and some have read a bio on the therapist’s website, but most have no idea what they’re doing when choosing a therapist.  Here’s some of my ideas about […]

  • I’m Not Psychic

    Nowhere in my education and training as a psychotherapist was I bestowed with the magic ability to see inside people’s thoughts or discern their core motivations.   ‘Well duh!’ you may be thinking.  But I’m still surprised at how much this notion persists—not so much among my clients, but among acquaintances I make who only half-jokingly show hesitation about engaging me in friendly conversation lest […]
