Greet the New Year with a Gratitude Journal

Feeling down?

Why not greet with New Year with a gratitude journal?

You can start by putting a reminder note on your bathroom sink mirror that says, “Add one item to your gratitude journal, no matter how small.”

Symptoms Are Not People

light at the core 512px-Švejcar.Světlo.křížeIf you suffer from an eating disorder you most likely do not know the difference between your symptoms and who you authentically are.  Our culture doesn''t help. Yet knowing the difference is vital as well as delightful for your recovery. *

Professional Confidentiality and Blogging

               Blogging is public and psychotherapy is private.

Sharing my knowledge with you is a challenge. 


               My deep learning and knowing come not from books and lectures

but from intimate meetings with courageous and determined people who

have given me their trust.  The work takes place in what I consider sacred space.


               In fact, I think the work can only be successful if the time and space my

patients and I share is impenetrable to others and solid for us.


          So please understand, when I give examples I am describing people who are not

and never have been patients or I am creating a fictitious person who represents

what I have seen and heard over many years of being in the field of eating disorder

recovery.


               What I say in these blogs will be as true as I know truth to be. At the same time I

will be honoring the confidentiality of my patients - past and present. I hope you

understand and can appreciate this aspect of my blog.
