Suffering is an inherent part of our human life. Sometimes we can overcome our sorrows on our own, but sometimes we need help. Sometimes this sorrow from life's challenges grows bigger than the inner and outer support system(s) we have access to. With professional help, what once felt so hopeless can once again become a life worth living. I believe life isn't just about seeking happiness, it is also about appreciating and learning to live out our most individual and unique human myth, our own narrative of complexity and depth, suffering, longing, redemption, and yes, happiness too.

Dealing with trauma, loss, and life's dilemmas we need to understand our inner world, that spiritual inner "other" who can guide us and lead us onto the right path again. This disharmony between our inner and outer worlds is what brings people into my consulting room. This disharmony, caused by developmental dilemmas, trauma, and crisis can lead to anxiety, depression, and sometimes suicide.

The working relationship between you and me is the elixir that brings the solution to the inner suffering. Our relationship leads you to your inner "other" who then becomes the guide so that when you leave you my consulting room you feel confident and secure in your ability to navigate life's waters on your own.

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

I am a Jungian psychotherapist, and I have been practicing the art of psychotherapy for 22 years. I specialize in working with depression and anxiety as it unfolds in life's developmental stages: marriage, parenting, birth, death, adolescence, career development, menopause, mid-life crisis, retirement, and elder care. I also work with families in transition from marriage to divorce, as well as individuals in an in depth therapy setting who are utilizing treatment as a means of living a spiritually enriched life (therapy 2-3X per week).

My View on the Purpose of Psychotherapy

I believe that psychotherapy is important in one distinctive way, and that is that it can restore one's life vision. When anxiety, depression, anger, and rage clouds one's judgment, the joy and meaning of life fall away; blindness ensues and a person cannot envision a meaningful and soulful existence. Psychotherapy can be more than just a fixative to current problem(s), it can restore and renew the very essential spiritual life necessary for a future worth living.
