Welcome to a growing collection of living blog posts focused on therapy, mental health, psychedelics, and philosophy, written by me. While I don't purport to be an expert on these topics, I am deeply engaged in exploring, understanding, and challenging various ideas, and my views frequently evolve over time. Instead of treating these pieces as an authoritative set of facts, I invite you to see them as starting points for broader discussion and contemplation.
My intention is to keep each post up to date as my perspectives shift, though this may not always be feasible. To help you gauge the recency of the content, a 'last updated' timestamp will be provided at the start of each post.
I welcome and appreciate your thoughts, questions, and suggestions. Please feel free to reach out and engage in this journey of exploration.

If you are experiencing mental health issues or are considering using psychedelics, I strongly recommend consulting qualified healthcare professionals.
