Keeping focused

In today’s fast paced world it is difficult to find the time to think about what your purpose in life might be.  It is also difficult because most people today do not believe that they have a purpose or identify their purpose with what they’ve been doing for a living, their work.  That may or may not be their purpose.  That really depends on if it is what makes them happy, gives their life meaning.  It will also depend on if they actually believe that they were born to this world for a greater purpose.  Something other then what they do for a living. If you are not spending time looking for and listening to that small voice inside, then you will not find your purpose.  Things will continue to go wrong for you in your life or you will be unhappy with what you are doing because you are not paying attention to the small voice and are doing what you want instead of what your were sent here to do.  Your greater purpose.  Your dream.  What you may not think is possible but would make you very happy to be doing. What people may tell you is impossible and will not make you money or you can’t live and support yourself doing.  If it is on your heart, you will be able to do it.  It would not be on your heart if you could not do it and be happy while doing it.  If you do not believe that we have a soul, then you will not believe that we have a higher purpose, that we were sent here for another reason other then our parents made us.  If you do believe in the soul, then you will be looking for what you came here to accomplish so you can go back to where you came from having accomplished that goal.

Relax! Enjoy!

I became a therapist in an attempt to understand my own childhood and what happened there and how it made me who I am, exhibiting the behaviors that were not always positive, very often self-destructive. I used Art Therapy to help me understand things in my past that were stopping me from making better decisions in my present day. I used Behavioral Science to help me understand underlying causal factors, roots to the present day behaviors that I was seeing in myself. Both help me to change those behaviors/thoughts that were causing me to make self-destructive decisions that were causing pain in life. I have been a therapist since 1985 and have an undergraduate degree Art and behavioral science (double major) from the University of Maine. My graduate work was done at Marywood university and I have a degree in Art Therapy. I have certificates in Forensic Interviewing and Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavior therapy. I have 22 out of 30 credits toward a degree in Trauma Therapy from Drexel University. I started out as a Community Support Worker, Program Manager/Clinical Supervisor, Family therapist and Outpatient therapist.
