Types of Counseling

You may be going through a specific crisis or difficult life transition. Maybe you're suffering from a chronic long-term dysfunction and want to finally make some healthy and/or necessary changes in your life.
Couples / Marriage
Only within the last half century has couples or marital therapy become a distinct discipline of its own. (Notwithstanding, some of the secrets of good marital counseling have been around for hundreds or thousands of years.
Children / Adolescents
Counseling Children and Adolescents is a distinct therapeutic art in itself.
I have known Jane Kimball for over 30 years. We have children about the same age, and I have long enjoyed being a member of her extended family.

Dividing the World in order to Save It

I’ve heard preachers do it. They’ll define an enemy and then work to ‘save’ the people from it. I see so many of our politicians do it (as well as our divider-in-chief in the White House).

They say it’s the devil’s favorite tactic. Divide people from each other - and they will feel much better, ‘safer’, superior (or inferior).  

Take, for example, the debates about gun control. Personally I believe the statistics that demonstrate I’m much safer where I live in that I don’t own a gun. But I can appreciate some of those who argue otherwise. I don’t like the way the argument is dividing the world around the issue of saving it.

Thoughts for Living More Fully
The tree which moves some to tears of joy is in the eyes of others only a
green thing that stands in the way. Some see nature all ridicule and
deformity... and some scarce see nature at all. But to the eyes of the man
of imagination, nature is imagination itself.
-William Blake, poet, engraver, and painter (1757-1827)
