What’s up Girl? Healed a little, eh?

My writing has become sporadic. My LIFE is more chaotic. But for (ultimately) a good reason – I’ve gotten a job.

Changing therapists – what to consider

I am evaluating if I should change therapists. The information gatherer in me wants some concrete advice to make the decision. Part of me wants to stay, and another part wants just as strongly to go.

Changing therapists is a difficult decision for anyone. But it becomes even more challenging if you are a multiple.

This article is about my research in order to make this decision. That maybe will help you with the decision as well.
