I find myself dearly grateful to be able to still meet with my beloved therapy clients online. I emphasized with one of them today the importance of matching the intensity of our self-care with the intensity of our stress. This pandemic is a time to be bold with finding ways we can connect to loved ones and ways we can tend to our internal lives. Everything is difficult and everything is possible.

Shared with love and thankful for being alongside one another, xox rachel

“No one listens, they tell me, and so I listen…and I tell them what they have just told me, and I sit in silence, listening to them, letting them grieve. ‘Julian, you are wise,’ they say, ‘You have been gifted with understanding.’ All I did was listen. For I believe full surely that God’s spirit is in us all.”
From my book “all i did was listen”‘s initial quote by Julian of Norwich and photo from my therapy room.
