"Life as a therapist is a life of service in which we daily transcend our personal wishes and turn our gaze toward the needs and growth of the other. We take pleasure not only in the growth of our patient but also in the ripple effect-the salutary influence our patients have upon those whom they touch in life"-Irvin D. Yalom
