About Roland Evans

Roland EvansRoland Evans Biography.  I was born on a farm in Ireland in 1951 and left home when I was sixteen. Over a period of ten years, I worked at many jobs across Ireland and England: hotels, building, corporate sales, farming and carpentry.  After reading the autobiography of Carl Jung and much soul-searching, I decided on a career as a psychologist.

I studied psychology at the Universities of Edinburgh in Scotland and the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia.  My graduate training in clinical psychology was with the National Health Service in London and I worked for 10 years as a psychologist in the UK.

In 1990, our family relocated to Boulder, Colorado where we live in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains.  From 1991 to 2007 I taught as an Adjunct Professor at Naropa University.  In 2001 I published Seeking Wholeness, a book exploring the the many dimensions of our human experience.  I have maintained a private psychotherapy practice in both the UK and US seeing a wide range of clients since 1983.

Currently, I work with clients 2 days a week, help run a small business that makes organic soil fertility products, and write.  My beautiful and productive mountain garden is an enduring source of effort and joy.  I strive daily to nurture inner peace and contentment amidst all the rich demands of life.
