Victor Bloomberg's bio

This content was provided by Victor Bloomberg "A therapist license does not guarantee empathy and compassion. These flow out of life challenges that led contributed to maturity, a community of caring mentors, and persistent effort to learn. This is what a therapist needs to work well with a person: A well-rounded life of working with a variety of people facing different kinds of challenges is essential. It grounds the therapist in the dignity of each person and creates curiosity about each person's point-of-view.

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Victor Bloomberg "How did I get good at this?

So many people from many walks of life have been supportive, shared their lessons-learned, been role models, and provided opportunities for me to learn-by-doing. My own spirit has given me a stick-to-it attitude and my family taught me to strive for excellence. At this time of my life, I want to pass forward the good will and knowledge — and that is why I supervise interns and write books. My admiration for persons who successfully heal their wounds (so that they also provide for and protect others), this respect for achievement through a heroic journey is my motivation to continue my career as a psychotherapist.

You want to convert emotional pain into power guided by love. The comments about grief of Vice-President Joe Biden applies to many extreme life events:

There will come a day, I promise you ... when the [past] brings a smile to your lips before it brings a tear to your eye. It will happen. ... [The] day will come sooner or later. … it will come."
