Ron’s Story: Do It Yourself Cancer Recovery
Ron was a lieutenant in the Vietnam War. He drove a truck, transporting war materiel. He was never injured, but was often sprayed by Agent Orange. He finished his tour and returned to Minnesota, opening a small repair shop on W. College Drive in Marshall. I owned a Toyota at the time, and Ron was my best Toyota mechanic. He was a happy guy, and folks could hear his cheery voice a block away. In early July 1991, I came for service, but the shop was quiet. The foreman met me, “Ron’s in the hospital with cancer!” I didn’t know anything about medicine in those days, so left a few self help books for him. I heard nothing more until mid November, when he called one evening. “Hi, this is Ron! I bet you’d like to know what happened to me!” He had had a bowel problem in late June, went to the local hospital where they found a huge, malignant mass in the lower abdomen. The cancer was so entangled with the rest of the organs that they couldn’t remove it without “gutting him like a fish”, as they told him after the surgery. They sewed him back up, then […]
Lucy Cures Her Migraines, With a Story
HAVE YOU EVER HAD A MIGRAINE? A really throbbing headache that will NOT go away? Lucy stopped at our clinic, with just such a story. Nothing that she did made a difference. This was in my early years, when I knew even less than I know now, and I didn’t know what to tell her. Since she didn’t have a migraine at that moment, I asked her to call me when another attack occurred. The phone rang Saturday morning. I quickly drove over and attempted to quench the pain with a tool called “EFT”– sometimes described as ‘acupuncture without the needles’, for it uses only light finger tapping. It soon became clear that my first technique wasn’t going to cut it. Listening as carefully as I could to my inner guidance I asked, “Lucy, did you ever play “LET’S PRETEND” when you were a little girl?” She painfully nodded, remembering the 1950’s radio program sponsored by Cream of Wheat cereal. “Now, close your eyes, and think of a “Pretend” story of a lady, your age, who had terrible migraines….” Lucy closed her eyes. There was complete silence for the next several minutes. I waited anxiously. Then Lucy began, “This […]
A Therapist of Therapy
Some years ago, as a result of my personal vulnerability from “less than ‘good-enough’ therapy,” I began to offer a service to patients and therapists: acting as an interventionist to the therapeutic alliance. If there is a powerful impasse in a “treatment” or some kind of stoppage to the therapy’s progress, I’m called in. At times, a patient may rage at a therapist for something quite human – such as when the therapist can’t understand, won’t listen, is tense, or interrupts the patient’s flow of speech. If the therapist is not vulnerable enough – personally within his or herself – to handle the patient’s “onslaught” – his or her anger, lengthy silence, hostility, manipulative or sullen behavior, and the like – then there can be a rupture in the work. The therapist blames the patient, and the patient blames the therapist. All work stops – it’s a stalemate! Patients must be able to emotionally use therapists just as a child uses his or her caretaker; patients may also try to control the therapist/caretaker similar to when a youngster constantly demands attention from a ‘Mom.’ The young child behaviorally frustrates the parent – sometimes crying for hours or sullen in crib […]
Unmaking My Eating Disorder
It would be extraordinary for a grown woman to spontaneously ration herself to 300 calories a day or vomit after every meal. Odds are that the skeletons pacing your average ‘Eating Disorders Ward’ have not had a short-term relationship with celery and self-loathing. Slowly, the flirtatious ecstasy of weight loss mutates into a full-fledged affair based on corporal punishment, maladaptive emotion regulation, and a false ideal of perfection. There’s a process – one that often begins in childhood. tweet By the time I was officially diagnosed with a purging sub-type of Anorexia Nervosa at the age of twenty, I’d been torturing my body for eight years. Eight years of midnight crunches, thinning hair, and fat-free taste-free yogurt. And for what? A label. A paragraph in my psychiatrist’s diagnostic manual. It was the same deflated feeling I had at the end of my senior year in high school when all the agonizing math assignments and hours spent color-coding geological diagrams were boiled down to a single score: 99.55. The sum of my life so far. But eating disorders can never be simplified to that extent. There’s a time when you’re just learning the ropes. You need a way to cope with […]
Magical Locks: Confessions of a Compulsive Hair Twister
It’s been about three days since I last had to cut out a knot of hair. It was a good one too, right on top and always accessible; whether my hair was up in a tousled bun or loosely pinned back, I knew just how to find it. But because it was on top and not underneath and to the side like the usual knots, I had to cock my head to get to it, which was awkward, and I got caught doing it. “BFB,” my boyfriend says to me — our code phrase to let me know that I’m drifting off into an episode of “Body-focused Behavior.” Every time he says “BFB,” I always respond with a confounded, “What did you say?” partly because he snaps me out of my twisting, knotting trance, and partly because I think for a moment he’s calling me his BFF. Hair twisting has been pervasive in my life for the past 10 years or so, but it grew out of other tactile hair fixations. In middle school when my hair was pulled up in a ponytail, I enjoyed searching for the little lumps and bumps between my hair and my scalp. I discovered that loading up a perfumed puff of […]
East Meets West I have moved along from my 40-year mainstream practice in psychotherapy to founding an alternative, non-profit institute, the Tao Studies Center, in Framingham, MA. The therapy work here is the study and practice of Chinese health and self-healing, especially through the wisdom of the Tao, as put forth in the Tao Te Ching by Lao Tzu, an early and unwitting purveyor of Taoist philosophy — and also through the study and use of the many Tao-influenced disciplines evolved and practiced in China and throughout the world for centuries. Some of these practices include the popular self-discovery art taught in I Ching: the Book of Changes; the practices of Tai Chi and Qi Gong; the immense body of knowledge comprised in Chinese Medicine, Acupressure, and Acupuncture; the relational and loving arts in the Kama Sutra; and the elevation of music, poetry, and visual arts so that they are key elements in modulating states-of-consciousness and states-of-health. Those who are musicians and artists may find this arts/self-discovery work to be especially deep, exciting, and self-revealing. “Taoism” is not a religion, or some god that requires worship and prostration. It is a philosophy for health in daily life, minimizing or moving through conflict, and harmonizing with nature, often in surprising ways. […]

I am an empathic human being and a highly trained Certified Psychoanalyst, Licensed Clinical Social Worker, and Credentialed Alcoholism Counselor. I help others manage and resolve difficulties of the heart — love, loss and work during significant life changes; for example, career change, death/illness in family, divorce, early “recovery,” relapse with addiction(s), criminal arrests, loss of work, etc. I am committed to providing high-quality professional assessment and counseling/psychotherapy to people who have not accessed or have had prior unsatisfactory experiences with psychotherapy. I am also committed to travel the lengthy road of psychoanalysis with people who want to take this voyage. A second arm of my private practice is “Second Opinions”: Some consumers are in a “stalemate” in their present “therapy”– where there is a serious impasse and “work” is forfeited. I consult with individuals who can no longer productively work in their current therapy, oftentimes beginning to resolve major impasses. On occasion, the individual’s therapist volunteers to be part of this process. In some cases, fruitful work is resumed. In other instances, a decision to leave the current therapy ensues. My interest in psychotherapy is borne by helping clients learn about themselves in seeing things differently—not changing their world, but having new eyes. By engaging […]

Developed by John Pierrakos, MD., Core Energetics is a marriage of Body Psychotherapy and Spiritual Development. The work brings consciousness to how we block our energy and recreate defense patterns adapted in childhood that keep us limited and disempowered. The core process helps us see how our world view is to a large extent a function of many of these blocked energy patterns, and so we keep recreating similar situations and relational dynamics that leave us frustrated. Awareness is not enough, we also need to mobilize our physical energy (life-force) differently in order to make lasting changes in both our inner world and our outer experience of life. Work with the body is critical in changing our experience of embodiment, because our defenses, belief systems, coping mechanisms, and typical emotional responses are not just psychological, they are also somatic and powerfully anchored in the physical body. Targeted body techniques open consciousness to suppressed feelings and engage the energy system in ways that allow us to go beyond our “comfort” zone. The Core work taps into blocked sources of energy that can then be integrated and grounded. This creates an expanded sense of who we are to more fully embrace our […]

Majica Phillips is a creative visionary who’s passions led her to explore art, music, and dance as a therapeutic vehicle. She works with couples and individuals who have a desire to have deeper connections, intimacy, and communication with their loved ones. “Sex Positivity isn’t about liking sex, liking kinky sex, having a lot of sex, or having a lot of partners. Sex positivity is about respecting other people, whether their sexual choices are the same as yours. It’s about not judging people because of their sexual desires, practices or histories. It’s about celebrating people’s courage in creating the sex lives that work for them in the face of cultural myths, shame, misinformation, and trauma that are used to control us. Sex-positivity is the belief that the only valid measure of a sexual act is the consent, pleasure, and well-being of the people who do it or are affected by it. Anything else is your own projection.” — Charlie Glickman, Ph.D
