I am a clinical psychologist and Jungian psychoanalyst with 40 years of experience in Jungian psychoanalysis and psychotherapy, psychosomatic medicine, chronic pain management, and stress management.
I enjoy working with clients of all ages and gender to help them learn to cope with their unique psychological, emotional, and physical problems. I am trained in clinical psychology and psychoanalysis as well as in psychosomatics so I am able to treat a wide spectrum of disorders. I tailor my approach to the specific needs of the client rather than trying to make the client fit into a particular theoretical model or to work in a predetermined treatment modality.

Finding yourself easily triggered? Dealing with chronic tension, sleep issues, dissociation, fatigue, nausea, stomachaches or chronic pain? Have you pushed things down inside or "coped" to survive a difficult childhood? Yet now, you find yourself avoiding things, anxious or experiencing body symptoms, or having difficulty with intimacy? Perhaps you want to be a strong advocate for yourself and others, and be more empowered. You want to build better relationships. You want to stop sabatoging yourself. Maybe, you've done a lot of crying it out, breathing exercises, or talking in circles, and you're looking for a way to feel unstuck.

Symptoms may include unresolved pain, impulse control, sleeplessness, memory loss, anxiety, depression, worthlessness, and difficulty connecting to others.
Therapy is a partnership. Together, we work gently with the body, mind, and emotional experience to reduce and heal troubling symptoms. I invite into our sessions the parts of us that facilitates perceiving, thinking, sensing, feeling, remembering, imagining, expressing, connecting, and relating. I support clients to become more aware of different aspects of themselves - those aspects that support and contribute to their well-being, and those that constrain or stagnate their potential. Together, we work towards mind-body integration for renewed purpose and well-being. I offer a free 20 minute consultation.

Lack of meaning, chronic illness or pain, work stress, interpersonal strife or loss can heal or change.
Analytical psychology emphasizes completeness, not perfection. Because psychological insight and self-knowledge are essential for health and vitality, it's lucky our psyches respond favorably to attention and reflection! Positive, effective, long lasting change is created. Research shows nightly dreams provide a running commentary on everyday life. Dreams anticipate, sometimes warn, and often help in resolving problems. They help you relate to the "rest of you", the part that operates out of awareness, sometimes causing symptoms, or taking over and becoming destructive. These parts appear increasingly frightening when pushed away.
