Transformations…

 

Palmer-PicI found this note in my inbox tonight from a patient I took on battling drug and sex addiction involving a fetish that ultimately took hold of his existence. After seeing over 24 therapists in the past and a history of several inpatient treatments with no resolve, he more recently found himself in intensive therapy at the Renew Center. My work with him is not yet done but he is already transformed in ways he could only imagine.

 

 Dear Dr. Palmer: I can safely say that i walked into this experience without much faith in myself, life or the affects of theraputic treatment. I can also safley say that this experience has changed me forever. I have grown as an individual, and i am exceedingly impressed with my experiences within the renew center as well as my life. as soon as i walked into your office, my life suddenly started to change and i started to grow. i kept growing into new territories with a firmer internal foundation within me. i think what’s great about this experience, is that i was never encouraged to do anything i didn’t want to do. i was never asked to change. i found myself wanting to grow and naturally doing so. my life was in ruins, and i was exhausting myself from my addictions and psychological cycles of self-defeat. when I came to the renew center, it was like pressing the “on” button out of the hopelessness and pain that consumed my life. there is truly a back door out of a destructive life. i now believe i was intended to open it. most of my life in therapy, i had dealt with reason and ended with reason. here, it has been one revelation after another. when I got over my illness and addictions i found myself at a heightened state of awareness and self-potential. it’s a beautiful thing, stepping into yourself. constant mind-numbing therapy that didn’t work was part of my defeating lifestyle, until i came here and everything changed in the most riveting natural way. i went from hopeless to eager to motivated to driven. I went from angry to questionable to accepting to loving. i am so grateful for this spiritual journey. i came so lost in the dark and what i saw from my experience was the most beautiful thing, i saw me. Who could ask for anything else? what happened here was nothing less then a miracle.

Palmer-PicThis is my life work. This is what inspires me. It is what I am meant to do. Some people call me a “shrink”, but my patients dont shrink. They grow and expand and strengthen. To have my hand in that and to witness these miraculous transformations is one of the most amazing life experiences you can ever imagine. So never give up. Believe. And remember…change is possible…recovery is possible…balance is possible…

 Dear Dr Palmer,

I wanted to take a moment to thank you for opening my eyes to new ways of dealing with my daughters. I feel amazingly strong, even though I know I will still face battles resisting the motherly urge to “do for” them. But tonight I was successful once again…. I now realize I can fix NOTHING for these two girls, thanks to you. So through my strength I am empowering THEM to make the change!….Plus I really enjoy the laughs you and I have together. Thank you for sharing the fun with me! You are wonderful!” So as I lay in bed wondering how I would do this day of mine ahead and find the energy to push through, suddenly and unbeknownst to her, this patient’s words to me became my spark because hard work and dedication do pay off.

Palmer-PicI don’t do what I do for the compliments or applause because this work is not about me. I am an instrument of change and like an artist I truly enjoy the art of my practice of being a physicist of change in peoples lives. But I have to say that to hear about my patient’s own breakthroughs and victories is transformative and inspiring. It makes me feel, especially at my toughest moments like this morning that I am luckiest girl in the world!
