Growing up, questions played a big role for me. I wanted to know how things worked, why people did what they did. So of course psychology is what I ended up studying, but it wasn’t as inevitable as I now consider it. For over two decades I dwelled in religious fundamentalism, seeing myself, those around me and the world through a very narrow lens of moral judgment. It was the slow, constant questioning that allowed me to see that reality was so much bigger than I was allowing myself to consider.
A feeling of freedom, the acceptance of uncertainty and the joy of exploring our shared humanity is what I seek to always bring to my life. Through services provided for individuals, couples and groups, I am always trying to see how we can help one another. This crazy experience we call life is a never-ending source of new thoughts and feelings. I appreciate everyone who comes with me through the process of discovery.
That process is what brought me to create “Life Weavings.” The name captures how I look at life, the people I come into contact with and the means of discovery. The loom is most often associated with Fate in mythology, but I have in mind weaving as an art and creative enterprise. Each life is a complex interplay of many threads, whether they be family, genetics, relationships, culture, history, etc. To pluck just one will never give you the full picture of who a person is and how the threads interact will be different for everyone. Such complexity is inspiring because it means the potential for discovery and new self-expression is never finished.
