Why is my approach to therapy different ?

Because it is not simply learned from some dry textbook of case studies. I don’t just talk the talk, I have actually walked the walk.
I grew up in a chaotic home and in later years my dad became a deputy sheriff. I was in my teens and able to witness first-hand what a toll that took on my very empathetic and kind father. I watched and listened to my dad and his close work buddies & family friends as they tried to work through the stresses of their day to day work. I am/was related to or friends with several police officers. I was married briefly to a deputy sheriff and was witness to how he and his fellow officers dealt with their work related stresses.

The robins start at 4am, followed by sand hill cranes and a flock of swallows that have been busily trying to build nests on the house. My roosters also start carrying on around 4:30 and then we can randomly hear coyotes, woodpeckers and all sorts of critters. My commute to my new office in town is approximately 40 minutes and I am fortunate enough to be able to do a lot of work from home now too. Most of that work so far has been getting the horses and chickens settled in, gardening, and maintenance around the yard. As I continue to heal from my own health journey…
