Today I interview Paul Quinlivan, a therapist in the Seattle area. We begin by talking about the potential dangers of engaging your story alone. Then, Paul shares a story of himself as a boy… a boy who was a deep feeler. Paul’s story reminds me of a quote from the late Brent Curtis who said, “Perhaps you grew up in an atmosphere too fragile to bear the weight of your unedited soul.” Paul and I talk about the paradox of a parent who can be physically present for sporting events and the like, but emotionally absent in day to day life. And we also explore the crucial category of one’s posture toward oneself as a younger boy or girl. 

Consider a Counseling Intensive in stunningly beautiful Fort Collins, Colorado!

For help with engaging your story in a group setting, consider the Allender Center’s Certificate Program.
