My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
WARNING: THIS IS LONG!!!! BUT, I AM WELL WORTH THE READ!!
Maybe I should just send you the link to my published thesis from graduate school entitled Birthing the Soul through Loss: The Mythopoetic Life; it might be easier than this "self-summary." LOL
After graduating from high school I married and had three children: two daughters and one son. Our son died at the age of 19 months. I have been married 3 times: 12 years, 2 years, and 9 years, to two different men (yes, I married and divorced the same man twice). After one divorce, I completed one degree, after the second divorce, a second degree, and after the third, I completed the third degree. The demands of life, for me, have seemed aplenty, though I have come to understand their worth and life has begun evening-off.
I entered college when i was 35 years of age. From the point I first entered it took me over 25 years, many starts-stops-and-start-back-up- agains, to complete three degrees: an Associate in 1989, Bachelors in 2006, and Masters in 2012. Matriculating and completing my masters degree from Pacifica Graduate Institute was a profoundly wonderful experience.
I have had a love for psychology and spirituality for all of my life. When searching for a graduate program in psychology, I discovered depth psychology at Pacifica. My sojourn there was not only of rigorous academic worth, but of psychic worth! There I found my sine qua non, the "training analysis" as Jung called it, and my life has never been the same.
And so it is that I have been married and in relationship for probably as many years as I have been single. I understand the worth of both states. The jury is out on what I am truly best suited for; however, my heart leans toward a committed, loving, reciprocal relationship. I understand the responsibilities of being single and of being married/in-relationship!
I continue to consider the pros and cons of matriculating into post-graduate school at Pacifica. Maybe a pipe-dream, not sure.
Most of my adult life I have been committed to wellness, and I still am. I used to be a long-distant runner, teach aerobic dancercize, and stretch. As the years moved forward, priorites and goals changed, and now, I am lucky to get outside or a walk once a month. I do have an impressive Schwinn bicycle that I honor on and off again. And so though I enjoy exercise, my commitment to exercise is not what it once was. I am 40 lbs. overweight, and would love to recommit my life to exercising. I do stretch, yoga, and meditate daily. A mindful way of living is very important to me.
Maybe I will cross back over....after all I was foretold (I had my fortune told when I was visiting Chennai India in 2006) that I would "live to be 116 at which time I would gladly greet death." And so there is still time to train for the marathon I never ran but aspired to, in my more physically fit days.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I am licensed as a Marriage and Family Therapy Associate and a Chemical Dependency Professional Trainee. In July of this year, I opened my own business as a Depth Psychotherapist, specializing in grief, loss, trauma, addiction, education of the heart, and process groups. I work for a local drug and alcohol treatment service inpatient facility for women (and their children) as a counselor.
In the last 10 years I have been busy completing my educational goals towards living a life of passion. As I settle into my work, devoting my life to my destiny, it is my desire to find more time to fun activities. I look forward to meeting a compatible other who enjoys similar activities, political, spiritual, and intellectual views as me. I am not looking for a clone... or someone who will agree with me; I am looking for someone I can learn from, be best friends with, and enjoy life with.

Oh, depth psychology and everything related to it!
