“Hi. Howdy. Hola. Hallo. Bonjour. Kon’nichiwa.”
What a treat it is to have you here.
I am Julia Blues, The Story Psychologist. I’m sure you’re wondering what that is exactly. Well, let me tell you.
Story is an account of details. Experiences. A narrative. What life is made up of.
Psychology is the science and study of mind and behavior, according to Merriam-Webster.
Being a writer and a student majoring in psychology, I decided to marry the two. Storytelling is what I do; it is a part of me. But getting into the mind of people, studying their habits, tracing their patterns, trying to come up for reasons of behavior is a part of who I am as well. I spend a lot of time developing characters, digging into their core, finding out who they are and why they do what they do. It’s as if I am their therapist listening to their stories unfold while taking copious notes.
Telling my story freed me, and I want to offer that same opportunity to others, no matter how long they’ve been telling the same story.
Life changes. People change. The story changes. As we live, learn, grow, and love, the very fabric that lace our stories—individually and collectively—begin to take on a new pattern. As a story psychologist, I want to bring awareness to how our narratives shape our lives through the use of storytelling. I like to look at psychology as a way to treat the soul, and for me, my goal is to do that through storytelling.
The story behind you and the story in front of you compare not to the story within you.
Live. Learn. Grow. Love.
