Am I a Therapist or a Mom? Can I Be Good at Both?

Am I a therapist or am I a Mom?   How can I rate myself well in one role without failing at the other?

In my continuing conversation with Jennifer Johannesen, author of “No Ordinary Boy”, I talk about trying to balance therapy and parenting roles.  I muse about how the expectations of therapists combined with my hope for a future full of purposeful action for Nick together, conspired to exhaust me.  I’m betting other Moms and caregivers of loved ones with therapy needs feel the same.
