Conversations with a Healer
THERE ARE MANY PSYCHOTHERAPISTS IN THE WORLD TODAY. BUT THERE ARE FEW OF THE HIGHEST CALIBER AND EFFECTIVENESS.
Permit me to tell you about my singularly therapeutic experience, not even as a formal client of hers, but from just a few casual conversations with Dr. Palmer, founder of The Renew Center in Boca Raton, Florida.
First of all, I can say with absolute certainty that she was more helpful to me than a roomful of psychotherapists and a cupboard full of pills!
I was suffering from a constellation of problems stemming from two emotionally disturbed parents who terrorized me in childhood. Strangely, I thought there was nothing really wrong with me. After all, I had studied some psychology back in college. I fancied myself an expert!
Little did I know what monsters were awaiting their emergence from the abyss of my subconscious! Dr. Palmer immediately and mysteriously sensed the kind of help I needed. Something I had long suspected but had self-denied.
Out of our remarkable conversations, I experienced an exhilarating and intimate exchange of words, dreams, feelings, longings, ambitions, and fantasies. Days after my first conversation with her, I found that my mind experienced ongoing reorganization and revelation. At first, I thought it was as if she had somehow set a little homunculus in motion that was wandering around my psyche, tearing things down and building them back up again, or just making an adjustment here and there.
But in reality, it was I who was actually investigating, analyzing, experiencing, and reintegrating myself.
Throughout my life I had maintained a hatred of my parents that would periodically (and unexpectedly) well up out of nowhere for a minute or so, then pass.
But now, surprisingly, it's all gone. And it’s all because of my conversations with Dr. Palmer.
