CHARLES J. UNGER Here is a situation that combines my careers as an attorney and as a psychotherapist. Generally, when a client comes to see me in my capacity as a therapist, that which he or she says to me is protected. The client knows what they say stays within the four walls of the counseling office. Throughout history, there have been two, or more appropriately 1 1/2, exceptions to that rule. The first exception is if a client comes in and tells me that he is getting ready to murder another individual.

Edward Han Sticks and stones might break bones, but what causes general aches and pains? It is a question that too many people don't know the answer to, according to Laura Stewart, who is the founder, president and chief therapist of Wellspring Therapy. As a result, Wellspring is hosting a series of free seminars starting July 13 that are designed to educate the community on the most common hand, back, joint and other problems. "Patients who come in here have had pains for years, and only go to a doctor when they absolutely can't do anything else," said Stewart, a certified hand therapist who has been an occupational therapist for nearly 20 years.

I'm not currently in therapy, but if I were, I think one session might go a little something like this. Me: "All the grammar Nazis are driving me nuts. I can't take it anymore." Therapist: "What grammar Nazis?" Me: "The ones I keep finding on the Internet." Therapist: "How do you keep finding them?" Me: "Well, I'm searching for them. I'm googling terms like 'grammar' and 'peeve' and 'makes me grate my teeth' and 'stick an ice pick in my ear.'" Therapist: "Why would you do that?"

Gretchen Hoffman NORTHEAST GLENDALE -- Efren Saldivar's guilty plea refocused attention on Glendale Adventist Medical Center, but hospital officials say community trust is still high. Saldivar pleaded guilty on Tuesday to murdering six patients and trying to kill a seventh while working as a respiratory therapist at Glendale Adventist in 1996 and 1997. He injected them with Pavulon, a drug that causes breathing to stop. As part of his plea to avoid the death penalty, the clock on the statute of limitations will start ticking anew: Victims' families have a year to file a civil suit.

Laura Stewart is a no-nonsense therapist, a mother of two, a fan of the Lakers and president of Wellspring Therapy. At 53, Stewart is not merely a basketball fan. She competes in three-on-three half-court games in an adult league that attracts women in their 80s and sideline paramedics who are quick on their feet. It is her love for therapy and basketball that sync when Stewart explains what Wellspring Therapy is to a potential employee during an interview. These times call for Stewart to spin Laker metaphors — if the interviewee is a Lakers fan, she noted.

At first glance, the Play to Learn Center does not seem to be associated with a hospital. Many of the rooms in the center have been turned into gymnasiums, filled with swings, toys and playground equipment. The center is Glendale Adventist’s off-campus pediatric therapy center and works with children who have mental or physical disabilities, using play as a key therapeutic technique. Glendale resident Edwina Clorina has been volunteering at the center through Pacific Oaks College in Pasadena for a semester and said she learns something new from both the therapists and children every day. “I like learning from [the children]
