Challenging My Path

Birds chirp and the wind blows; the perfect blend of spring sounds and smells. The setting awkward for a therapists office. Shouldn’t there be more bricks? Less pristine landscape? Fewer kayaks floating down the perfect waters? More books on wellness? Dark walls? Large tissue boxes and inspirational posters? When I started going to sessions my…

Wait… You’ve Changed.

You’ve been quiet since you got back. I had food poisoning. You’ve had it this long? No, just last week. Oh, I mean since you’ve been back from Mat leave. I’ve been back for over a year. Yeah, you’re not the same. You used to come and visit us in our offices all the time,…
