Paul Newland, M.S., AMFT, APCC is a Narrative Therapist, Experiential Educator, and Program Facilitator. His interest in stories began at a young age with the discovery of books, which were consumed with vigor. In grade school, he fell in love with bringing stories to life by becoming a character in role playing games and contributing to community storytelling. As a therapist, facilitator, and educator, Paul uses careful questioning and reflecting processes to help people come to better understand the stories constructed around themselves and the world at large. He believes that in exploring the way that stories have come to live with us and the kinds of influence they exert on how we act and what we know, the relationships and the values that guide our performance of life often become more clear. Through restoring authorship rights to tell our own stories the way that we want them to be told, he believes we can begin to challenge the default stories and roles performed upon us and lay the foundation for a new performance of who we are becoming.
