Re: Can you email your therapist?

When I first met with my therapist she gave me a writing assignment ("tell me about the women in your life.") When I asked her how to send it she gave me her email.

I used to write a lot and send a lot. Now I pretty much limit it to dreams--nightmares--and only the more intense ones or ones that I can't figure out.

She responds to aknowledge the email and usually to say that we'll discuss it next time we meet. She likes to keep things "in the room" vs. doing therapy outside of it.

I think writing about your feelings can be therapeutic but not fully. I think that if you get carried away, writing can be a way of detaching from your feelings. I find words numbing at times.

> Those who do correspond that way, how often do you email? I don't mean "therapy" over email, I just mean regular email.
