1) Who am I and why do I feel so crazy*?
2) Who is that other person I thought I knew, and why is s/he driving me so crazy?
3) Why do I keep doing the crazy stuff I do, even though I want to change?!
4) In the face of all of all my flaws how do I become the person I want to be?
5) How do I get that other person over there to be and do what I want?
6) Why does life/God/the universe either a) seem so crazy that the way the world works makes no sense, or b) hate me personally so much that I get punished again and again no matter how hard I try?
7) Why bother to ever do anything? What is the point?
Over time, I found I was creating metaphors and parables to translate seemingly complicated human behaviors and patterns into simple and practical concepts that my clients could use to feel empowered and create change in their own lives. When people were able to see the problems and solutions more clearly, therapy became a more efficient use of time and money. I often joke with my clients about the fundamental irony of being a psychotherapist, i.e. I am in the business of trying to put myself out of business! It’s true though. I want you to get free of all the unconscious baggage that weighs you down and keeps you from being your finest self -- from living your most excellent life. I want you to acquire an adventurous sense that there might be a lot to know about you that you don’t already know. And even though it could seem scary and dangerous to learn about yourself, until you see yourself clearly, you will never be free to be the author of your self, your life, and your own destiny. That’s what The Marble Game is about. I will let you know as soon as I have a release date!
