Solitude is something that is in short supply these days. We don’t seems to have time enough in the day to find solitude. When life becomes too busy and we don’t have time to connect with ourselves we lose ourselves in the midst of all of the motion. Taking time every day to reconnect with ourselves, to ground ourselves in each moment. That means we have to take the time to meditate, pray or just be silent for a little while. To allow ourselves to reconnect body, mind and spirit. To listen to what our inner voice is saying so we can follow it. Letting go of those things that are keeping us from taking the time to listen to our inner voice is not always easy. Changing our routines to make the time is also not always easy. If we don’t want to become overwhelmed by life it is a necessity. The following link will help you to let go of what is holding you back. It will help you to calm yourself enough to let go and reconnect with what is important for your life to move forward.
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
