Yes, talk therapy does leave a ton of work undone. That's a tiny part of what I do. Most of what I do is Sensorimotor and IFS therapy. Both very effective for me, very valuable for me, and I have written extensively about these here in my threads a

Long Beach, MS. That's like Paris, TX... I didn't want to put myself out there if I was wrong, but if I'd known for sure it was someone from here, I would have approached. You know that song Phil Collins recorded for the Disney movie around 2000? I

How do we forgive our Fathers? Maybe in a dream Do we forgive our Fathers for leaving us too often or forever when we were little? Maybe for scaring us with unexpected rage or making us nervous because there never seemed to be any rage there at all.
