  • From a source of abuse to a source for healing: one story about turning tragedy into triumph

    Apr 03, 2012
    It’s funny how things capture our imagination and trigger memories. I was just walking across the waiting room and noticed a smiling face in a car at the road; a client who is early for a session and looking up at the office. Now this was not one of my clients, but a client who is treated in this office. It does not have to be mine to bring about a smile in return. Her smile warmed my heart and I found myself instead of doing paperwork, feeling the need to write about the memories she brought out.

  • It’s spring time at Pillwillop Therapeutic Farm

    Apr 02, 2012
    I am back from an awesome time at the ACA conference in San Francisco. It was a great time for this small town guy as I experienced both the West Coast but also city life for the first time. Though I can do without the pan handlers, sky scrapers and tons of people but minimal trees, I have a new appreciation for those who prefer the bright lights and big city life. I found myself really getting into the concept of public transportation, small shops and maid service; all of which are not found on a farm or my town. I was also humbled by the outpouring of support and encouragement not only by the ACA staff but from my fellow members. So many treated me as if I were part of the family; hugs were plentiful and enjoyed. I can’t tell you how much it meant to me to be treated so warmly. As this was my first ACA conference I had imagined a lonely trip with me being lost in the shuffle.

  • The need to find time to consult with other professionals

    Mar 14, 2012
    It’s one of the more important things we do yet it is also the thing that many of us dread. Trying to consult with other professionals can be akin to trying to catch a greased pig with your feet; though it is statistically possible, very few of us have ever seen it. Phone tag between colleagues can last days or weeks, even when we attempt to set things up via email prior to the conversations. This to a certain extent should be expected; try to get two busy clinicians available at the same time is difficult due to emergencies, meetings, paperwork and related insurance practices and the reality that our clients need us, at times they need us a lot.

  • My heart is in San Francisco: a cool conference and memories of getting started

    Mar 05, 2012
    As you all know, the ACA annual conference is just around the corner and is in San Francisco! Now being a small town boy at heart I have never been to the west coast, in fact I believe the last time I flew it was to visit a dying relative in Arizona about a decade or more ago. I prefer staying in my comfort zone which is in my office helping others or on the farm doing the same but with the addition of “tractor therapy” for me whenever possible. This does not mean to convey that I never wanted to go to the west coast, just that I have never had the reason to do so until now.

  • Dreams Can Be Contagious

    Mar 01, 2012
    Dreamers dream while planners plan; put a dreamer and a planner together and the combination can be both stunning and amazing. When the two are actually half of the same whole, people can become very confused, which in itself can be an adventure.
