Kathleen Sullivan

has been a practicing psychotherapist for forty years, a poet for only a quarter of that time. She believes there are many similarities between the work of the therapist and the poet. Her great surprise in participating in the poetry and police project is in finding how similar the policeman’s work is to both the therapist’s and the poet’s. She is grateful for the chance to have poetry be the instrument which introduced her to her Portland police poetpartner, Tim Farris.
