Good job on the marriage counseling it has helped a lot.
I have had the honor to work with Bob (or Dr. Shafer) for 16 years now. Our work has enabled me to go from being a frightened, anxious, selfless being making many detrimental life decisions out of a desperate need to feel safe… to becoming confident, calm, relaxed and comfortable. In the past, I needed anti-anxiety medication to sleep and sometimes to make it through the day. I just wasn’t comfortable in my own skin and had very low self-esteem. Therefore, I wanted to hide my true self from people and was afraid if they saw the “real” me, they would not approve. Now, almost never do I feel the need to sensor myself before i speak or act. I no longer need to gain approval from people out there the world because I now approve of myself being exactly who I am regardless of the cost (and sometimes it does cost.) Bob has helped me gain the inner freedom and self-respect that allows me to be spontaneous and free to be me in my work and in the world at large. I love my life now and the freedom I feel…and I have Bob to thank for that.
Prior to counseling I had several relationships end badly. Many complaints were failure. So Dr Bob, I came to see you in order to find out why I kept making the same mistakes. Your caring way and depth of understanding was not always easy but very productive. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
