Suffering is part of the human experience. Although there is no cure for it, finding the meaning in suffering can bring relief - a shift in perception can bring forth different actions leading to different outcomes. In our work together, we will explore the root of the suffering, rather than putting a bandaid on the symptom. The healing process can begin when the initial wounding is discovered. My task is to listen deeply, so that your experience and feelings can be validated. Contents in the unconscious that may have been hidden in your blind spot, can be illuminated, thus broadening consciousness, so that you have more choices in how you respond to any given situation. In our fast-paced world, my space becomes a vessel for stillness, so that you may begin to hear the faint whisper of your inner voice. Through our connection, your connection to yourself becomes stronger, thus developing your own inner counsel.

Our work also becomes a "reflective practice," by looking at past interactions and finding new responses that "reflect" who you are more authentically. In this way, old patterns are broken and new attitudes can be adopted.

"Your vision will become clear only when you can look into your own heart. Who looks outside, dreams; who looks inside, awakes." - Carl Jung

Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With

I work with a variety of issues: I enjoy working with artists, exploring dreams and amplifying them with myth, when applicable. I work with issues of the soul, referencing poetry and literature. I also work with body issues (image/illness), grief, loss, abandonment, parenting, adoption, mid-life and quarter-life issues. And I work with the prominent maladies of our modern culture: depression and anxiety.

What I Love about Being a Psychotherapist

I love being with people and watching them come into a new relationship with themselves, learning to find compassion for who they are. I'm curious and I love mysteries - not just Agatha Christie's - but life's mysteries that are meant to be lived. I am passionate about doing my own inner work, and recognize how valuable this work has been to me. It is very rewarding to see people living their lives more authentically, holding onto themselves, and moving toward their potential, becoming who they were meant to be, stepping out of outdated, familiar roles.

Theoretical Influences that Guide My Work

I have been studying Carl Jung's work since 1993. Jung talks about the importance of developing a relationship between the conscious and the unconscious. Consciousness caries contents of which we are aware, things we know about ourselves, while the Unconscious carries contents that result in behaviors that can completely mystify us (ex.: "Why did I just say that?"). By examining the contents of the unconscious, we can start to see what is really driving our actions. We begin to go underneath the symptom; hence the term "depth psychology" is often used for this kind of work. Jung observed the psyche, and in so doing, was able to work with everyday neuroses, and he also developed a technique for psychological development, whereby therapy becomes a practice for getting to know ourselves better, and becoming who we were meant to be. I love that! We don't need to see ourselves as flawed, or broken - just human, in all its manifestations, trying to evolve, and move towards wholeness, not perfection.
