The Swiss psychiatrist Carl Jung founded Jungian or analytical psychology. He believed that our psyche is made up of three layers: consciousness, the personal unconscious, and the collective unconscious. A vital relationship between all three layers is critical to optimal psychological functioning.
Conventional modalities can address the problems and issues that we are aware of but they cannot address those that originate from deeper within the psyche, those that are hidden from consciousness.
A Jungian approach would look beneath symptoms to examine and explore the issues and problems caused by our unacknowledged or hidden psychological history--those ideas, attitudes, and painful memories that haunt and disrupt present day functioning. It can also uncover more authentic life goals, values, and creative potentials.
The process of Jungian analysis or depth psychotherapy is one of recovery and discovery. Your quest is a journey of healing and psychological transformation at a deeper level than conventional methods can access. This deep work aims to reconcile inner conflict and turmoil, leading you to find the internal compass that will guide you to becoming your best self and living your fullest life, as well as to discovering a personal spirituality.
Change and growth are possible, but it is your desire and readiness that move you towards wellness. You can do it! I will be your facilitator and help you free yourself from the grip of depression, anxiety, powerlessness, meaninglessness, or spiritual malaise. You can live an authentic life!
By learning new ways to manage and diminish old fears, you will be able to reclaim personal authority and the joy that comes from living by your own values and convictions. You will learn the tools you need to make this journey, and to improve your relationships--with yourself and with the people in your life.
I will be a support, guide, mentor, and witness to your quest for transformation.
“The home we seek is in eternity;
The Truth we seek is like a shoreless sea,
Of which your paradise is but a drop.
This ocean can be yours; why should you stop
Beguiled by dreams of evanescent dew?
The secrets of the sun are yours, but you
Content yourself with motes trapped in its beams.
Turn to what truly lives, reject what seems --
Which matters more, the body or the soul?
Be whole: desire and journey to the Whole.”
