"The most intense conflicts, if overcome, leave behind a sense of security and calm that is not easily disturbed." Carl Jung
It is never too late to grow. Psychotherapy that can help us change a life is as much for the person in her 60's or 70's as it is for those in their 30's and 40's.
I am fascinated by stories. The stories we tell ourselves about ourselves and our lives. The stories we tell others to shape how they see and know us. In Jungian psychotherapy, together we listen to your stories and find the places where some element in the story, perhaps an old belief about yourself, keeps you from the life you want. Over time, the story changes so that the story you tell about yourself at the end, while still recognizably yours, is different from the story you told at the beginning, a revised version that you will continue to live into old age.
There are no magic tricks or tools in this kind of therapy. It works when you and I develop a good working relationship with each other. Your task is to show up at the appointed time and say what you want as honestly as you can. Tell me your dreams. Your feelings. Your wishes. Your hopes. Your sorrows. My task is to listen, listen as deeply as I can, and offer you my feelings, ideas, intuitions that come in response to your stories.
The goal of Jungian psychotherapy is to enable you to live a life that most fully expresses your own nature. Each of us has a unique self which is trying to unfold. When that unfolding is blocked we may become anxious, or depressed or angry and we may have trouble in our relationships. You and I together develop a caring dialogue which will help you first to understand where you are blocked and then to overcome your blocks. Through our work, you can expect to feel happier and more fulfilled in your relationships, in your job and in your creative life.
"If attention is directed to the unconscious, the unconscious will yield up its contents, and these in turn will fructify the conscious like a fountain of living water. For consciousness is just as arid as the unconscious if the two halves of our psychic life are separated." Carl Jung
Depth psychotherapy is usually not brief therapy. It takes time to explore the complexities of feeling and experience that make up a person's own unique past, as well as present manifestations of that past. People who enter Jungian psychotherapy make an important personal commitment.
Jungian psychotherapy is not only for those with diagnosable psychological problems, like depression or anxiety. It is also valuable for personal growth. Through Jungian psychotherapy you may in discover a more authentic and personally meaningful way of living your life. Using Jungian psychotherapy for personal growth also uses dreamwork as a core ingredient in moving toward psychological maturity.
Although in most respects working face to face is desirable, when distance or other circumstances make that difficult or impossible, then working by telephone is a very workable alternative.
I currently have openings for prospective patients who wish to work by telephone or face-to-face -- we can schedule your first session within a week.

Man's task is to become conscious of the contents that press upward from the unconscious. – C.G. Jung
