Election day

Today is election day and I do not feel like I know what each candidate is going to do for me when they become president.  I do know what each one has done in the past, I am unsure what they will be doing in the future for the American people.  I know some things that they’ve said they will do, what they will try to do.  All of that depends on the cooperation of a congress and senate that may or may not go along with it.  This is a scary place to be in this country.  We seem to have made a mockery of this process and forgotten how important being President really is. It seems to have become a TV reality show.   The congress and senate seem to have forgotten that they are elected by the people for the people, not special interests.  They can be removed that way also.  It is scary because we seem to be dealing with an immature person on one hand and someone I cannot completely trust to do the right thing on the other.  So I am going to the polls this morning to vote for the lesser of two evils.  I do not like that feeling as I am sure a lot of the American people are feeling the same way.  Whatever the result of this election, I will accept the results and work with whomever is elected.  The prospect scares me this time more than any other time I have voted.  I am encouraging everyone to vote because it is important for everyone to do so.  Especially this time.

I will watch my own videos this morning before I leave to vote and try to relax about the potential results.  I have no control over the results, but will accept them and whatever outcome they will bring.  I will pray that not too much damage will be done to this country I love.  I would like it to still be free for my grandchildren to enjoy when today is done.  God please be in this day.

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.
