Nobody comes to therapy who hasn’t lost something. The heart is injured. Limping. Constrained by psychic adhesions. Aching, either obviously or just behind the curtain of consciousness. The therapeutic relationship is the MRI. It reveals what’s torn. What’s exhausted and worn out. We dig in. We clean things out. Sew things up. Then, just like the physical therapist, I push folks to work the injury. To face discomfort in service to wellness and liberation. To go one inch farther than they think they can. Hold it for five seconds. Next time for 10. You can do this. And now your heart can love again. Live again. With all the depth and range of motion a human heart is intended to have. — Steven Kalas
