I loved seeing all of the creative designs. I didn't like having to pick! I would have liked more advice about what kinds of comments to make. It made me feel uncomfortable to ask for revisions if I wasn't likely to choose a given design but I also wanted to see how things might evolve. I didn't feel I had a grasp of what the shared ground rules are for this kind of situation. But overall it was a terrific experience.

The work I do is a bit complicated – ergo the long description below. So here goes. Technically, you can call my field Relational Psychobiology. I am a therapist and workshop presenter for couples and families. Most of my clients come to therapy with relationship problems. I help them understand what happens to the brain when relationships sour and how to use that knowledge to break out of negative patterns with one another. I teach them a way of listening that contains defensiveness so they can actually hear what is being said rather than what they fear is being said. This dialogue process elegantly and effectively sidesteps the brain’s typical reactive patterns and sets the stage for genuine communication – something that doesn’t go on many relationships!! What almost all clients realize is that the pain they experience in their relationships is not imposed intentionally, but rather is the collateral damage caused by their partner’s survival mechanisms. When this concept is understood and integrated, they experience a paradigm shift in the way they view themselves and others – what I call a Mindshift. What science is discovering is that these shifts in thinking have a neural basis. Hardened, older and defensive pathways can be disrupted and replaced with newer and healthier patterns of thought through the mechanisms of neuroplasticity. This is what happens when therapy is successful. Last year, I hired a graphic designer to create a logo for me. She was given a description of all of the elements of my work – the brain, relationships, conflict, emotions, etc. I didn’t particularly like the designs she came up with but I also realized that it may be too hard to try to capture the gist of my work into a simple logo. SO… I would like to see what can be done with Mindshifting but I am also open to the idea that the logo should simply be something using my name.
