Hello and Goodbye

by Shlomit Gorin, MA
We would like to say goodbye to Ripple Patel, our Psychoanalysis in the News contributor, who is moving to Massachusetts for her internship program. Thank you, Ripple, for your steadfast selection, over the past four years, of so many interesting articles from a diverse range of publications, and for your commitment to Impulse.
Welcome to our new Psychoanalysis in the News contributor, Molly Merson, MFT. Molly is a relational, psychodynamic psychotherapist in private practice in Berkeley. She works with adults and adolescents of all genders to approach uncomfortable feelings, work through stuck patterns, and create room for joy and desire. Molly is also a Summer Sessions Wellness Lecturer at UC Berkeley and a contributing writer to PsychedMagazine, where she writes about social justice, psychoanalytic psychotherapy, relationships, and the universe. She is currently working on a series of articles about healing from the death of a mother, which she hopes to expand into a book. When she's not writing or being a therapist, Molly loves being active in her CrossFit and weightlifting community, hiking, and daydreaming.
