studio self-portrait, September 2019
I had an unusual start to my career as a mental health professional: I did not major in psychology. Instead, I studied theatre, and I am convinced it was the best education in human behavior I could have asked for!
Over the years I have marveled over the fascinating parallels between acting and doing, theatre and real life, the stage and the spiritual. Theatre is therapeutic, yes, but it is also an incredible teacher. From basic skills like public speaking and improvisational thinking to analyzing why someone is behaving in ways that are confusing, theatre and psychology are two sides of the same coin: the study of human nature.
