There are moments when the universe is on our side and we are in the exact time and place for a blessing. Three years ago that blessing was Dr. Kaushansky. My life was in a very turbulent state filled with family conflict and unresolved traumas, I wasn't expecting much from going back to therapy because I was in a real depressive place and I had lost hope in the direction my life was going. Now, Daniel insists that all the work and progress I have accomplished up until this point, is all me, however, I will have to disagree. As someone who has dealt with depression for more than a decade, I have had my fair share of therapists, and while they all helped me in some way or another, none of them have ever come close to Daniel’s kind and generous demeanor and his level of positivity that has impacted my life. From the very first visit, I felt his warmth and kindness radiate throughout the room, immediately putting me at ease and allowing me to begin the hard work that needed to be done. With his continuous validation, emotional support and mindful practice, I was given the tools and confidence to make the world my own, find my calling and ultimately fall back in love with myself. While I continue to find new things to work on with him, I don't think I could ever find the right words to capture everything he has done for me; he is truly a blessing.
