This blog represents my truth quest and an attempt to make some sense of this world. It is also my endeavor to frame and pass forward some of the information I have collected along the way. The information I have gathered here is gleaned from the hard work of countless others.
The truth of my personal experience is viewed through the framework of a caucasian woman with Dutch and English ancestry, raised in New England, USA. However, I believe my personal truth reflects some more expansive truths about right and wrong, good and bad held by people around the world..
I have a B.A. from Columbia University, Barnard College, major in architecture. Later, I returned to school at the University of Connecticut to study clinical psychology, child psychology, neuropsychology, and primary prevention. I have worked as a primary mental health counselor with children in the Connecticut public school system and as a research assistant at the Yale Health, Emotion & Behavior Laboratory. I have a keen eye for spotting juicy research findings and when that fails I like things that are sparkly.
I grew up in a home surrounded by nature.
I like to draw,
and design textiles.
“ I grew up in the woods. It gives you a different viewpoint; I was improperly socialized.” – Margaret Atwood
