About Author

I live in the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina and hope to remain in these smoky and blue-hued mountains for the remainder of my life.  I enjoy thoughtful games of chess with a cup of dark coffee particularly during cool mornings.  Chocolate, pecan pie, hammocks, sweet tea, U2, and the Mumford and Sons are some of my favorite things.  I find inspiration in creativity and art.  

  • Presently the author of this site is working on a Masters in Clinical and Mental Health Counseling and will be seeking licensure after the educational requirements and required supervision hours are completed.  
  • Presently the author of this site is not a licensed counselor, but a student.  The author of this site is not working on becoming a “Biblical Counselor” or a “Christian Counselor”.
