Nietzsche once complained that he had to write in order to get the thoughts out of his head, as if writing served as a decompression valve for his brain. I feel that way. I write because I read and experience far more than I consciously retain and writing helps to force the thoughts out of my brain and into the light of day. I try to force out the important ones mostly for my own reflection, but invite others to indulge as well if they find them useful.
I hold a BA in Pastoral Ministry, an MA in Theological and Historical Studies, and an MS in Counseling Psychology. I currently work as an inpatient adolescence and adult psychotherapist.
Books I’m working through:
(1) “Being As Communion,” by John D. Zizioulas; (2) “Laurus,” by Eugene Vodolazkin; (3) “Separation, Will, and Creativity: The Wisdom of Otto Rank,” by Esther Menaker; (4) “Thinking, Fast and Slow,” by Daniel Kahneman; and (5) “The Philokalia, Vol. 3” compiled by St. Nikodimos of the Holy Mountain
