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 with adolescents and adults as a family therapist.
Books I’m working through:
(1) “The Republic,” by Plato; (2) “Getting Past Your Past: EMDR therapy,” by Francine Shapiro; (3) “Faust,” by Goethe; (4) “Sickness Unto Death,” By Kierkegaard; and (5) “The Philokalia, Vol. 3” compiled by St. Nikodimos of the Holy Mountain
