I am a Jungian analyst and licensed Marriage and Family therapist with a Master’s degree in counseling psychology from Pacifica Graduate Institute. I am analytically oriented and have had extensive training in dreamwork, sandplay therapy, and working with the imagination. I am an avid reader and resonate with writers such as C. G. Jung, Marie-Louise von Franz, Marion Woodman, and Robert Johnson.
I have also attended numerous seminars and intensive programs, am a certified Jungian analyst at the Jung Institute of Los Angeles www.junginla.org, and work in their clinic. Besides doing therapy/analysis with clients of all ages and cultural backgrounds, I frequently work with actors and creative individuals, helping them to connect with the deeper layers of the imagination that feeds and nourishes their artistic work.
In addition to being a psychotherapist, I have been trained as a botanical artist, worked for a non-profit spiritual organization for many years, and was a pharmacist in my early years. I have traveled in other cultures, have practiced meditation for over 35 years, and enjoy the solitude of walking and being in nature in my free time.
“The dream is a little hidden door in the innermost and most secret recesses of the soul, opening into that cosmic night which was psyche long before there was any ego-consciousness, and which will remain psyche no matter how far our ego-consciousness extends.” –C. G. Jung, CW 10: 304
