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.

Each person experiences mental distress uniquely. My aim is to partner with my client to ensure their safety in our shared space, create a bond of trust, and then dive into problems and solutions. Whether one experiences identity- or event-based problems and whether those are caused by individual development or social conditions, I strongly believe in the innate ability of trusting partnerships to overcome the troubles in our lives. If I'm not the right therapist for a person, I will work hard to keep them safe until they decide how to move forward.

Have you been so overwhelmed you can't seem to find the energy to move? Are you too anxious to take the next step, or are you frustrated that you are getting upset over trivial things? Do your interactions with other people bring new struggles and pain? It's not ridiculous that you are responding to life’s challenges in a particular way. You are not a bad parent or partner. You are dealing with situations that have become a roadblock to your happiness. Deep down, we are meant to be happy, and too much daily stress can drain us of contentment and joy.

Currently accepting new clients. Life can be complex: relationships, family, school, work. Our lives can be further challenged by the unique aspects of our times. We are under constant bombardment of information, straining our ability to focus and compartmentalize. Factors such as trauma, shame and guilt further complicate things. My approach is to help "break it down and make it simple". This means helping people untangle their thoughts, pressures and feelings, while collaboratively devising plans aimed at learning to manage and alleviate whatever symptoms are causing distress.

Waitlist for new clients
I am now maintaining a waitlist; contact for scheduling options. Adolescence and adulthood are challenging; coping with anxiety, depression, and the daily barriers of life can easily complicate things further. You may struggle to cope with and find balance between the frustrations of school, relationships, work, and family. Maybe you feel it is time to focus on personal growth and seek harmony. Taking the first steps can feel extraordinarily challenging but I will be there to provide support and guidance within your journey. I believe everyone has the capacity to manage life's challenges and I can provide you the skills to do so.

In therapy, my main aim is to create a space where you can freely express yourself, offering understanding and validation to bring you a sense of relief by the end of our session. While I believe these are fundamental goals in therapy, I understand that they are just the beginning. When we connect, I tailor my approach to suit your unique needs, recognizing that there is no one-size-fits-all solution in therapy. My approach involves delving not only into emotional and psychological aspects but also addressing societal factors and systemic oppression that may be impacting your life.

Living a human life is fraught with painful experiences, just by its nature, and not because people are doing anything wrong. Whether that manifests as sadness, loneliness, guilt, shame, boredom, numbness, stagnation, anxiety, or fear, when these feelings show up, they can leave us feeling trapped and powerless in the face of the challenges of life. My goal is to provide a non-judgmental environment in which people can feel free to build awareness of their thoughts, feelings, behaviors, habits, and relationship dynamics. This awareness provides the basis for personal transformation.

I specialize in treating individuals, couples and families who are struggling with anxiety and relational turmoil. My approach differs slightly based on the presenting problem. In treating anxiety we will take a close look at the thought processes that inform it. We will then tailor treatment to your situation. When relational turmoil is the presenting concern, we will look at the relational patterns across the span of your life, and explore how these patterns are manifesting in the present. We'll then explore pathways to relational security and empowerment.

Male Therapists

As a man, why might I want to see a male therapist?

There are many reasons a man might wish to work with a male therapist, including a degree of shared identity, which may help client and therapist connect to each other and allow for a more free-flowing discussion of issues that can be deeply personal. Some men may feel more comfortable talking to a male therapist about relationship concerns, the pressures they feel around the roles society and family place on men, career or job challenges, self-esteem, or anger problems. For some men who have not had a male role models in their lives, a good male therapist may be especially helpful.

How can I find out about a therapist’s experience treating men?

Individuals looking for treatment should feel comfortable directly asking a therapist about their history treating men overall and the issues that arise in therapy with men. A good therapist will be happy to discuss such matters as well as their educational background, approach to treatment, and how they think they can aid a prospective client. Prospective clients should also ask what the expectation is for treatment, and what the fee structure is, and whether and which insurance plans are accepted.

Can clients benefit from having a therapist of the same gender?

Therapy is not gender-specific, but some men as well as women feel more comfortable opening up about their experiences and history with a male therapist. An individual may feel that they have to explain less background information and be on the same page more quickly, particularly when discussing gender-specific challenges, in the case of male clients. Some women have prior negative experiences with women that predispose them to prefer working with a male in therapy. That said, a good clinician can transcend most if not all gender concerns. Ultimately, the most important factor in therapy is the connection and trust the client is able to build with the practitioner.

Would a male therapist have specific training in treating men?

Generally, no. There are no certifications for treating men specifically, but there are continuing education classes that therapists may take that focus on treating men as a group. There are many therapists who focus on men and male issues in their treatment and therefore have experience and expertise in this domain.
