  • Hello Dr. Cornwall,

    Thank you so much for your reply, I found it very consoling. I’m curious how you have survived some of the mechanistic procedures of your PhD program, I’m afraid of learning “stock-like” questions and techniques, making me respond less creatively and spontaneously to each individual’s unique pain. Were there any workshops or trainings you found beneficial for you as a clinician? That were more heart-centered or spiritually-founded? Thank you very much again.

    Warmly,
    River

  • Dear Dr. Cornwall,

    How did you survive the burnout and despair? Can it be as simple as your belief in the existence of the light, and of merciful love? I am on the path of becoming a therapist, yet my fears of falling into despair are growing. I feel as though I must have some sense of God or spirituality to hold onto, or that I have to have the heart of jesus and the mind of a warrior in order to deal with all the pain. Any advice on how to sustain yourself throughout the years would be very meaningful. Thank you.

    Warmly,
    River
