Back In Therapy

Our Apple Tree

It was ten years ago that I first saw a therapist, and today I began therapy again.

The first time I drove forty-five minutes into Saratoga Springs and sat across from Selma for an hour.  Today I sat in my studio and talked to my new therapist on the phone.

I began to feel relieved when I started the process of getting help last week and now, after an hour of talking to and getting to know my therapist, I feel better than I have in a long time.

I can already see that my problems are common enough to be well understood and documented.  This gives me hope that I can get to a better place.

I’m dealing with family issues, but I’m not going to write about it, not yet.

Maybe when I understand it all better and feel more secure about how I handle it I’ll be able to share what I’ve learned.   I know this is an important decision in my life and I’m looking forward to it manifesting in many positive ways.

And I have no doubt that it will become visible, one way or another, in my art.

  1. Maria, Have been dealing with family issues for the last 6 years and I have to say that therapy has been so good for my husband and I. We had both reached the end of our rope with our family member and could not see our way out of our bad patterns of behavior. Our therapist has been such a support for us, happy for you that you have reached out. Wishing you a good outcome.

  2. Family issues are not easy sometimes. Yay you for taking a positive approach to what you are dealing with. Blessings, peace, and joy to you Maria as you begin your new journey.

  3. Well done on being proactive, and glad you already feel that you know it’s going to help.

    No need to share all your life with us. Hope creating in the studio, more bellydancing, harvests from your garden and hanging out with the animals helps too.

  4. Good luck with your therapy Maria.
    I worked with people who knew a lot more about life and the human condition than I did. It was life changing.
    By the way, my wife thinks the “housewives” magnet is awesome. Me too.
