Sheila ReadSheila Read, MA, MSW, LCSW, writes, photographs and blog about nature, faith and love.  My work reflects my faith in God’s compassion and our call to reflect God’s mercy in how we treat each other and the Earth.

I am a licensed clinical social worker and counselor at Triangle Spiritual Counseling, PLLC, who works with people who want to use their spirituality as a resource in therapy. (See my other blog, On Healing, here.) I am active in energizing a response to Pope Francis’ encyclical, Laudato Si,’ in my parish of St. Francis of Assisi in Raleigh, NC. I studied Catholic Church teaching on care of creation intensively as part of master’s thesis in communications.
