Thanking My First Therapist


--by lindariebel, posted Mar 26, 2020
The story about thanking a teacher reminded me of something I did recently. My first therapist (not the one in college, total waste of time in the 1960's before they knew anything) made such a difference in my life that I often wanted to thank him.

Every couple of years I would do a Google search without success. This year I found him -- after 40 years! I emailed and also sent an article that I published in which I praised his work (not by name). We also spoke over the phone. Completing a circle!
