As I explore the natural world through my camera, I find that my photography has strong parallels to my vocation as a psychotherapist. One art form and perspective is in sync with the other.
As a therapist I'm closely aligned with my clients as they navigate the vicissitudes of experience. As a photographer I bring a similar sense of honor and respect as I reveal the astonishing variations of life and interconnectedness in the natural world.
I love looking at the familiar in new ways; isolating certain elements to fully regard them; and "thinking outside the box" to design unique environments and possibilities.
In both of my realms, I believe that using an intuitive “third eye” has the potential for deepening awareness, bearing empathic witness to adversity, and perhaps even advancing a reverent appreciation for the cycles in, and of life.
