Illumination from Hildegard’s visions.
Who is Hildegard?
St. Hildegard of Bingen was a 12th century German Benedictine nun. She was a Christian mystic, poet, musician, composer, artist, theologian, and visionary. She wrote extensive theological, scientific, botanical, and medicinal texts. Her writings bring science, art, and religion together. She was a renowned healer, devoted to the care of every human person (especially the marginalized) and to the care of the earth.

Thomas Clark, MS, LMHC (Licensed Mental Health Counselor). “I strive to help angsty adolescents, anxious adults and quarreling couples. I also work with survivors of trauma and those struggling with depression, and those with emotional addictions like sex and overeating. I especially welcome introverts, people with low self-esteem and creative people. I know it can be scary to see a therapist – I was scared my first time. Please know that I’m not here to judge you or ask you to be someone you are not. My goal is to help you discover answers, gain self-awareness, and find healing. I am generally available to see clients at the Hildegard Center on a sliding scale or donation basis one evening per week.” Learn more at http://www.therapywiththomas.com/.
