Steven Franssen headshotHi!

My name is Steven Franssen. 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 a traumatic and turbulent childhood. The more recent the work, the more upright it stands and walks. I am striving every day to become a better person.
