THE GUNFIRE AROUND US makes it hard to hear. But the human voice is different from other sounds. It can be heard over noises that bury everything else. Even when it's not shouting. Even when it's just a whisper. Even the lowest whisper can be heard - over armies - when it's telling the truth.
-Silvia Broome (Nicole Kidman) in The Interpreter (2005)
Having been in recovery since 1996, I have personal awareness of what contributes to people making choices that limit their potential and make their world a smaller, seemingly less threatening place. I appreciate how challenging it can be to face the experiences that have shaped a person and to begin to move beyond the limiting beliefs many have adopted to protect themselves from the pain, fear, and abandonment they have known. The transformation I experienced, and experienced countless others having over the years, has offered me a unique perspective on both sides of the therapeutic process. It has provided me insight and compassion for those struggling with the challenges of life and continues to inspire me to be of service to all people as we seek a more authentic and reassuring awareness of who we are.
