My Approach to Helping

\"Who looks outside, dreams; who looks inside, awakes.\" -C.G. Jung-

Suffering is an inescapable aspect of life...an aspect that always carries potential for personal growth and meaning. The challenge is to pause long enough to reflect; to face what life has put before us that we can no longer ignore. Psychotherapy is ultimately about having a safe place for an inner journey to meaning; a journey accompanied by someone familiar with the path and the process. Whether it\'s normal life transitions, or perhaps a major life disruption, the struggle contains an opportunity.

As a Jungian psychotherapist, I take a depth-oriented approach to the therapy process. This means that I assist my clients to gain greater self-awareness and greater access to their own inner wisdom in navigating the problem issues of their lives. I see my role as supportive, but also as a guide for my clients in their individual path towards greater wholeness and wellbeing.

Clients who come to me for counseling are often feeling overwhelmed by the struggles that go with various typical life events; starting a new job, adjusting to college, starting a new relationship, beginning a family, parenting challenges, caring for aging parents, or retirement. But there are also those unexpected life situations that seem to alter everything; breakdowns in marriages or significant relationships, untimely losses, (a job, a friendship, or perhaps the death of someone close), or a frightening or life-threatening diagnosis. All of these experiences can prompt symptoms such as anxiety or even depression, but almost assuredly, lead to feelings of aloneness and isolation.

In addition to alleviating acute symptoms associated with emotional distress, my clients frequently report that therapy helps them develop effective coping strategies and removes \"blocks\" to personal fulfillment that were not readily apparent when trying to solve their problems on their own. Additionally, clients generally report an improved outlook on their lives and relationships overall, based on the insights they gain over the course of therapy. This is usually in the form of greater self-awareness, greater self-empathy, and the universal human satisfaction of \"things making sense.\"

No one can tell you when it is time to begin the inner work of a counseling process. Usually you have to try it on your own for a while before concluding that consulting a professional might be beneficial. If you feel ready or if you would just like to talk about the possibility, please contact me.

My View on the Purpose of Psychotherapy

Psychotherapy is indeed unique among modern methods of treating human suffering. No longer as stigmatizing as in the past, psychotherapy is now widely accepted as a means to access support, an "outside perspective," and perhaps most importantly, a safe place for self-reflection and working through the inevitable struggles of life and personal development.

My approach to psychotherapy is based on the theories of C.G. Jung, who emphasized the unique purpose of every human life. He defined the process of achieving that purpose, "individuation." A life lived in alignment with one's unique purpose has the possibility of fulfillment and meaning. That alignment is the central goal of the psychotherapy process...the inner work.
