Analytical training in the classical Jungian tradition prepares
its clinicians to work deeply with their clients. The
specialization also trains analysts in working practically ----
in the here and now. Skills to help a client work more deeply
within themselves are supported by in-depth training in
exploration of the unconscious, such as in dreams, forgotten
desires and paths, and in telling one's story.
This approach expands the therapy and helps the client to get
beneath the presenting symptoms. These insights benefit clients
well after their therapy concludes. Jungian training prepares
its clinicians to help with life problems, such as depression,
anxiety, personal relationship issues, grief and loss, and the many
other reasons people seek therapy. Finally, Jungian training
insists that each person is unique and that all people are
trying to heal through their difficulties and seek a fuller

Over five years in community mental health settings in agencies
serving men and women with moderate and severe mental illness.
Nine years in private practice for adults. Over thirty years of
work with individuals in for profit and not-for-profit
organizations instilled a strong knowledge of work communities and
their challenges. Having held positions in strategy, leadership,
and problem - solving, I help individuals whose clinical issues
sometimes call for discussion of practical problem solving. My
specialization focuses upon establishing a trusted, confidential,
and non - judgmental relationship. To that end, Jungian analytical
training requires hundreds of hours of personal therapy on the part
of the analyst to be. This requirement is often different from
the preparation of other clinicians, and it greatly helps the
Jungian Analyst to separate their own issues from clients' and to
become skilled in protecting the client as they work through their
Client Populations Served
|Individual adults and young adults,
beginning at age 20 into elder ages. Men and women. All genders
My approach to counseling and Jungian analysis is based on a fundamental
concept: A helpful, professional relationship between client and
therapist is the bedrock of good therapy. Working from that premise
(and helping my client find another therapist if I do not fit them),
I establish a place of confidentiality and reliability. |
|Welcoming people who wish to work on the parts of their lives that
are causing pain or distress or on repeated decisions that do not
achieve what a person wishes describe my practice. I encourage you
to call and enquire. Often a beginning conversation over the
telephone will help you to begin your process of therapy.
