Situational note: I graduated from the Muscular Therapy Institute in
Cambridge, MA on 2/6/00 and am now an LMT. My private practice "Mindful
Massage Therapy" is open for business, with treatment space near Davis
Square. I am taking new clients, email me if interested!
At the graduation I gave a talk about

profession), which I was very happy with.
In July I had an article published in the newsletter of the Association
for the Development of the Person-Centered Approach, titled "On Not Knowing How To Do It." The insights
are drawn from my massage therapy practice -- an unusual topic for a
talk-therapy association, but in this case 100% relevant.
I still haven't gotten this web-page into the shape I want it, but that
day is probably coming closer as working part-time permits me to catch
up on more and more things.
I talk about my current major
focus (Client-Centered Therapy), and bemoan how little that discipline
is understood in the states.
I consider what to put here next.
