It is customary today to give thanks for all the opportunities this wonderful country affords us to be all that we can be. As a relatively new immigrant, I also bow my head in gratitude for having been allowed to fulfill some of my most cherished dreams.
I am grateful to all my teachers and mentors who along the way expanded my intellectual horizons, strengthened and galvanized my mind and soul and sent me off to a challenging and fulfilling career.
Most of all, I am grateful to my patients who through the years invited me along their wonders-full journeys of self-discovery and trusted me with the most sacred parts of their minds, their growth and healing are inextricably linked to mine. They have been my best teachers and to them I offer my heartfelt thanks.
