You have found the website of Erin Carney Moline. Nice to see you here. I've been practicing depth psychotherapy for over 10 years in Portland, Oregon, and work with clients under the LPC license in Oregon.
Wherever you are, I'd love to support you on your journey. I bring a combination of supportive counseling and depth therapeutic techniques, as well as beautiful tools ranging from yoga to Image-making in my work with all of my clients. Whether we begin with talking or moving or making, you are one person and together we will work to help you find your healing and your own soul encouragement.
You can also find support in the blog on this site where I share music, art, poetry, and other things that I find and have found meaningful. Art feeds us in a way nothing else can, whether the creation of our own and that of others.
I hope you enjoy this poem by Mary Oliver. May you feel inspired today. Please call or email me if you are interested in exploring doing therapeutic work together.
by Mary Oliver
You do not have to be good.
You do not have to walk on your knees
For a hundred miles through the desert, repenting.
You only have to let the soft animal of your body
love what it loves.
Tell me about despair, yours, and I will tell you mine.
Meanwhile the world goes on.
Meanwhile the sun and the clear pebbles of the rain
are moving across the landscapes,
over the prairies and the deep trees,
the mountains and the rivers.
Meanwhile the wild geese, high in the clean blue air,
are heading home again.
Whoever you are, no matter how lonely,
the world offers itself to your imagination,
calls to you like the wild geese, harsh and exciting —
over and over announcing your place
in the family of things.
