Thank you all. I appreciate everyone's support so much.

I need to clarify just a little...he will always be my "therapist" & had many clients at the time he saw me. He was more skilled in deep healing of painful memories, inner work, integration for me than the preceding 3 or 4 PhD/licensed therapists. He was gifted, had great intuition about where to go next. I could bring my artwork in for discussion. I was amazingly more emotionally healthy after my time with him & more able to live my life. He had great boundaries & helped me to develop boundaries as well.

BUT (don't laugh, ok?)

He had extensive post grad counseling including a masters in counseling...but he is actually a minister. He no longer does full time counseling, but last I know is a chaplain at a large rescue mission. With these hard times he is probably swamped with work there. He did see me during my cancer treatment...He would have seen me more but I felt too ill then.

I have had no contact since then. BTW, I have known where he lives for years...recognized his truck...on a street that I go down often. This was a weird thing for transference back when...But now that I am feeling needy of help again driving by his house is once again bizarro.

love, surfergirl
