In order for anything to grow it must first break apart. It will then transform into something new, stronger, beautiful and better than before. It is only when the brokenness becomes your life that you stay stuck in the brokenness. When you do that you become bitter, angry and resentful of whatever you think you should have had and didn’t get. You begin to look at your life as having been cheated out of something that was probable never yours and you missed out on what is yours. Being grateful for every experience that comes your way, whether that is good or bad, should always be practiced. It will open you up to what comes next in your life. Hanging on to the negative emotions will only keep you stuck in that negative place. Being grateful for the experience will allow you to learn from it and move on with your life and to the next step that needs to be taken in order to reach your goal in life. The purpose you were sent here to accomplish. This will help you to relax and get rid of all of those things you have no control over. Click here for the link to the video’s. 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. View all posts by dtoomey2015
