Psychotherapy is a path to understanding the Self. My background is in family systems and Jungian psychology. I work with individuals around issues of anxiety, depression, creativity, and trauma. Depth therapy often includes work with dreams, art, and sandplay. In addition, I use EMDR for trauma when addressing issues of PTSD. I specialize in sexual abuse with both adults and children as well as other kinds of trauma. I enjoy working with people from diverse cultures and orientations.As a supervisor for 25 years, I enjoy working with interns on their way to licensure. Buddhist mindfulness practice informs my life and work.

I have a background in Jungian-based psychotherapy, client centered therapy and other evidence-based practices.
It is an honor to accompany individuals into the psyche where our deepest wounds are sometimes hidden. Healing energies can often be found in those depths, stimulating growth toward a more whole, authentic and satisfying existence. Sometimes the pain is on the surface, and symptom relief is necessary to allow the individual to return to a more effective functioning level. This can be accomplished through a combination of cognitive approaches (i.e., Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy) and body-centered approaches (i.e., focusing, embodied dream work, mindfulness).

I have 20 years experience in Jungian Psychotherapy.
The psyche strives to maintain a balance between opposing qualities while at the same time actively seeking its own development or as C.G. Jung called it, individuation. My goal is to help you reach a balance in life, to help identify symptoms. You may be struggling with Insomnia, depression, anxiety, loss, or negative patterns impacting daily life. My goal is to find purpose within yourself by seeing symptoms as symbols of deeper meaning. Within a safe therapeutic container of non-judgement, narrative therapy, dreams, creativity, and direction we can increase your awareness of desires, fears, patterns, and strengths together.

Hello and thanks for looking up my profile. I am a licensed psychologist, a professor of psychology, and a frequent speaker....I am both a clinician and an academic. I am strongly psychodynamically oriented, influenced by both psychoanalytic (in the intersubjective tradition) and Jungian styles. I work well with articulate, curious, and thoughtful people who take their internal lives seriously...or who want to learn to do so. Good therapy with high functioning people is often more about surrendering and unlearning than "trying to change." I encourage moral courage, self-expression and meaning-making.
