My name is Steven Summerstone. I am a therapist, musician, and writer currently living in Portland, Oregon.

Here I have posted essays, books, blog entries, videos, and music that represent different stages in my growth as a person. Consider these works similar to the timeline diagram of human evolution you’ve likely seen: a small ape-like creature on one end and an upright, modern-day human on the other end. The older the work, the closer I was to that frail, wounded, and completely terrified creature that emerged from my parents’ home not so long ago. The more recent the work, the more upright it stands and walks. By no means am I fully healed or enlightened but I am striving every day to become more real.

Consider us fellow travelers on the path to truth.
