My Approach to Helping
I am interested in truth and authenticity and psychology is for me a natural extension of a lifetime commitment to healing and awe for life. I enjoy facilitating the connection with the inner wisdom of the Self and found this very critical at times of changes and turmoil. I also like to explore the individual definition of meaning in life.
My orientation is Jungian psychotherapy, with an emphasis on the creative development of the full personality and wholeness. I like to work with dreams and active imagination. I enjoy sharing your journey and it is never too late to take action and start therapy, even if you had disappointing experiences in the past. The main problems I work with are anxiety, depression, history of traumatic experiences in early childhood, mid-life changes and other significant life changes.
More Info About My Practice
I build on my personal experience of immigrating to the United States and on my 25 years leadership experience as an executive in the pharmaceutical industry. I trained as a physician in France and immunologist/allergist and have an international experience of clinical research. I enjoy supporting leadership development when one find himself, or herself, in an unfamiliar environment, facing cross-cultural issues or being a minority.
I did some research on the personal experience of hospice workers and like to work with end-of-life issues.
How Psychotherapy Can Help
I am interested in psychotherapy as a path to deep changes in oneself and this comes generally with long-term therapy with one or two times weekly sessions. I am also open to providing support in times of crises and help you make choices for yourself.
What I Say to People Concerned about the Therapy Process
Therapy works when a strong climate of trust has been established. My role is to facilitate this climate of trust and open sharing, and to protect confidentiality.
