I’ve worked for many years as a consultant in the Asheville area and am currently pursuing a Master’s Degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling, focusing on Systemic Multicultural Counseling and Expressive Arts Therapy. As an undergraduate, I studied river ecology and the poetics of environment. While my pursuits have moved away from pure science, I’m still motivated by the relational nature of life on Earth. Our species’ degraded awareness of its intrinsic place within the web of life fills me with deep and mighty grief—the grief is so big, in fact, I sense it’s not all mine. Perhaps you sense it, too? Largescale resource acquisition and environmental deterioration are real and pervasive; their effects are so vast they can be difficult to approach. I offer creative, respectful, and practical support for individuals and groups who wish to address and process planetary grief and suffering. For more information, please be in touch.
