“Because every one of us, from childhood to the grave, has to deal with hurts, sadness, anger and fear, the sooner we learn to recognize these for what they are -simply feelings- the sooner we will learn to cope with the many changes, blessings, and unexpected events that come our way. Kathy Dempsey’s approach in supporting children to do just that is a gift beyond words, and one that may happily prevent them from spending unnecessary time in an office like mine as an adult.”
