Life often brings unexpected difficulties, anxieties, and problems without any way of understanding them. The therapeutic journey begins with having a curiosity about what is happening in your life, what the challenges you are facing are asking of you, why they are surfacing now, and what is underneath/behind them. In a confidential and supportive environment, we will explore your challenges, the dynamics of your personality, who you are as an individual, and how to tap inner resources and hidden potentials. We will use strategies such as dialoging, working with dreams, active imagination, art, journaling, and sandplay to facilitate our work together. Your inner and outer life are both important – I would like to join you on the journey of healing and self-exploration.
“…the sole purpose of human existence is to kindle a light in the darkness of mere being.” –C. G. Jung
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 specialize in working with individuals who want to connect more deeply with their inner lives, their dreams, and unrealized potentials. Together we will embark on exploring hidden aspects and dynamics of the Self. As we do this, individuals often find outer life and relationships change, and find themselves more in harmony with inner wisdom and guidance.
When you contact me (via voice-mail or e-mail), I will call you back so we can meet over the phone. During this time we will talk about what you are looking for in therapy and in a therapist, as well as discuss fees, schedules, and answer any other questions you might have. Once we have set up an initial appointment, please fill out the attached paperwork and bring with you when you come to your first therapy session.
