"Whether borderline, narcissistic or simply toxic, wounded and self-centered parents create wounded children. And these children grow up without the basics of warmth and kindness, acceptance and encouragement. In order to survive, we adapt to the needs of our demanding parents. That might mean we learn to parent our parent. Or we develop antennae and quickly respond to their changing moods and needs, simultaneously ignoring our own. We hope if we do and say the right thing long enough, then one day they will be strong enough to finally take care of us. But that day may never come."

"As a Jungian analyst I see children and adults for depth-oriented psychotherapy. I use a relational model focussing on feelings that come up between myself and my client as we work on the outer and inner concerns. Images from dreams, sandplay and art are integrated into the analytic work to explore deeper meanings and to elucidate concerns. I use play therapy & sandplay as appropriate for children and offer other age appropriate materials. I believe in a growth rather than a pathology oriented process, viewing problems-in-living as an opportunity to further self-development, growth, and awareness."

"My work is to help people discover this hidden other place from which their impulses and motivations flow, in an attempt at answering the questions of 'why am I this way?' and 'where am I going?' It works when it is a collaboration which can focus your insight at your future. My experience is detailed and extensive with both adult and child therapies. I also do infant parent psychotherapy geared at helping parents adapt to the new person the baby represents in their lives. Relationships, Depression, Identity, and Motivational issues respond to the work I do."

Why you have a nagging feeling that perhaps you're wasting time and not living your life in a more deep and fulfilling manner. You may think you're “not good enough,” or “if only this would have/not have happened," life would be different. The activities you do feel banal, going to work/school is dreadful, relationships and family are difficult, and the values and beliefs that once held you have lost their ground.
