I am a Jungian psychologist specializing in psychotherapy for depression. I have been licensed as a psychologist in California since 2002, and I practice in Santa Cruz, CA.

Jungian psychology can be an effective approach for dealing with a wide variety of psychological problems, but it is particularly effective in working with depression. In general, Jungian psychotherapy helps a person lead a deeper and more meaningful life. Oftentimes symptoms brought into psychotherapy, like depressive symptoms, have deeper, symbolic meanings that encourage a client to grow. Once the purpose of a symptom is understood, the symptom often decreases in severity, or goes away altogether.

Working with dreams greatly facilitates this process, and is considered an important part of the psychotherapy. Dreams reveal an "emotional blueprint" of the psyche, and can even be future-oriented in nature. These two important functions of dreams will help guide the Jungian psychotherapy process. Although I specialize in treating depression, I also have experience working with individuals with a wide variety of emotional and psychological problems.

Please don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions about Jungian psychology, dreams, depression, or other mental health concerns.
