WELCOME

 

As you consider the sometimes intimidating but always promising and courageous step of entering therapy, I welcome the opportunity to help you find the relief and change you are seeking. To make an initial appointment, email me at sherry.shokouhi@gmail.com or call/text (917)846-6692.  

 

This being human is a guest house.
Every morning a new arrival.

A joy, a depression, a meanness,
some momentary awareness comes
as an unexpected visitor.

Welcome and entertain them all!
Even if they’re a crowd of sorrows,
who violently sweep your house
empty of its furniture,
still treat each guest honorably.
He may be clearing you out
for some new delight.

The dark thought, the shame, the malice,
meet them at the door laughing,
and invite them in.

Be grateful for whoever comes,
because each has been sent
as a guide from beyond.
