Christopher Keffer Prompt:
One of my clients told me, “When I said I feel lonely, I am utterly all alone.”
This client lives at home with his parents, with whom he has at least a neutral relationship but they have all grown into patterns of son-parent interaction. He has symptoms related to anxieties, including social anxiety, and depression. He has one friend whom he sees roughly every othe
Victoria Pignato Anxiety #3

McKenna Burns-Smith Prompt:
I had a patient who came to seek therapy for his depression and anxiety. While talking to him, he shared his feelings about how he viewed himself. By the way he was talking, I could tell that he has a very low self-esteem and view of himself. He said…
“I can’t even look at myself in the mirror. Whenever I walk by one I try not to look at it. But whenever I do catch myself
Title: From the “Weltschmerz Suite” #1
Portrait of the sadness of feeling one's being to be abnormal, unfit for the other’s gaze, undesirable, without gifts or talent, with hideous asides, that is ruin against a backdrop of beauty, that is silence against a backdrop of song, that is gray against a backdrop of color, that the world will not reach out and hold, that the sun will not shine upon, that
Jon / Prompt:
One person described what it was like for them in the thralls of their active addiction, specifically touching on when they would start experiencing withdrawal symptoms. I thought it was a good description and that it might be cool to capture it in a graphic:
"I would wake up in the morning feeling sick, knowing I had to do something to make myself feel better. It was con
