“Through compassion it is possible to recognize that the craving for love that people feel resides also in our own hearts, that the cruelty the world knows all too well is also rooted in our own impulses. Through compassion we also sense our hope for forgiveness in our friends' eyes and our hatred in their bitter mouths. When they kill, we know that we could have done it; when they give life, we know that we can do the same. For a compassionate person nothing human is alien: no joy and no sorrow, no way of living and no way of dying.” Henri J.M. Nouwen
I have been a therapist for over 30 years. I retired from the United States Air Force in 2000 where I was fortunate to travel much of this country and the world. I value the use of humor, transparency and honesty in my clinical work. I love my family, music, dancing, hiking and enjoying the beauty of this incredible country.
