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. It’s like that. 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 the important ones out mostly for my own reflection, but I 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 a psychotherapist specializing primarily in anxiety related disorders.
Books I’m working through:
(1) “The Madness of Crowds” by Douglas Murray; (2) “The Marriage of Cadmus and Harmony” by Roberto Calasso; (3) “Capital” by Karl Marx; (4) “The Sacrament of Love” by Paul Evdokimov; and (5) “The Philokalia, Vol. 2” compiled by St. Nikodimos of the Holy Mountain
