Whether I am working as a psychodynamic psychotherapist or specifically as a Jungian Analyst I am always mindful of the power of the unconscious. It will exercise its might whether invited or not. I am best suited to treating clients who wish to or are compelled to journey into the dark to find meaning in their lives. I have found this process to be a combination of bringing unconscious material to the surface light in order to understand and make meaning of it, and tolerating and trusting some of what one cannot understand.
My aim is to help you address problematic ways of thinking, feeling, and behaving by way of examining the ways in which you perceive the world around you. The goal is to assist you in reaching a position of appreciation for your genuine self (for you are the perfect you!) and an acceptance of the events that occur in your life. I would be honored to take part in your journey of discovering the narratives which potentially distort reality and lead to discomfort, diminished self-worth, or other barriers to attaining contentment.
Helping individuals and families lessen the suffering caused by anxiety, depression, ADHD and trauma. Extensive experience in combining cognitive and psychoeducational psychotherapy with physiologically based treatments, such as EMDR, neurofeedback training, HeartMath and alpha stim stress relief systems. Join the growing number of clients that have found these approaches to alleviate symptoms and change behavior by modifying the problem causing mechanisms. Research has shown that these approaches can be particularly helpful when insight therapy alone has been less than effective. We also offer ADHD assessments, working memory and brain training programs. Located on Shelburne Rd, Easy access to I89.
Welcome. All human beings need help at times, and I believe it takes real courage and discipline to proceed on the path of getting therapy. People choose to seek therapy out of strength, not weakness. You now have, or can develop, the skills and potential you need to improve your life and more fully be the person you want to be. Therapy can help you uncover your inherent goodness and capabilities. Therapy can help provide you with a safe, supportive environment in which you can be free to share your fears, hopes, and vulnerabilities and work through them by tapping the wisdom and energy they hold. Good luck in your journey!
Discovering the root causes of suffering, anxiety, and depression is difficult work.

Without understanding, we find ourselves repeating patterns that are painful and unfulfilling. Using techniques from a variety of therapeutic models, I try to find the right approach for each person to come to a deeper understanding of themselves

I'm a Swiss-trained Jungian Analyst (www.jungiananalystvt.com) who views the analytic encounter as a deep and soulful collaboration within which we examine the origins, patterns and futility of disruptive unconscious complexes and behaviors while working to strengthen the soul's authentic, meaning-making, imaginative capability - what James Hillman termed the "poetic basis of mind". To facilitate this process, I aspire to create an environment of trust and confidence in which we engage the psyche, where one's inner world of thoughts, feelings, images, fantasies & dreams can be fully expressed, explored and reflected upon with compassion & without judgment.

*Not accepting new clients* approach counseling with the understanding that we are biologically wired for connection. For many people mental health is compromised as our need for connection and meaning in our environment conflicts with cultural imperatives of independence and productivity.I view symptoms of distress as acts of resistance, not individual failings. For many, these acts of resistance result from injuries of marginalization and disconnection.I support clients to explore this resistance in the context of their current environment (friends, family, community).I work with clients from a place of empowerment, not pathology.
